  1. Thanks for the suggestion. I love the desert however the heat does add an extra layer of engineering into any project!
  2. What fish species would be best suited for high temp areas? I'd love to have rainbow trout but it's too damn hot! Living in a desert climate has some concerns for me. Our temperature in Tucson, AZ can go from a low of 30F/0C in the winter to a high of 110F/44C during the summer. What is really crazy is that we normally have an almost 30 degree temperature differential throughout the year. So, heating and cooling the FT will be an issue. I have some creative ideas up my sleeve and can't wait to share. My system will be in my back yard, with the fish tank under a patio awning.

  4. Hell everyone! I'm a married (no kids, one dingo) Sonoran desert dweller (Southern Arizona, US) new to aquaponics and really excited to learn! Being a lighting system programmer/integrator by trade that travels frequently, and a decent electrician by avocation, I'm working on developing a system that will require minimal maintenance (wife acceptance) while I'm on the road. Looking forward to learning about and loving growing our own food!
