  1. Just noticed one (out of 100) of my blue tilapia is now much darker at the back 1/3 tail-end of his body. Growing and eating fine. They are approximately 1 month old and in a 500 gallon tank. Is this a sign of disease? Thanks.
  2. I have another thread here but the title is no longer applicable as its about goldfish, and I'm setting up for betta and tilapia aquaponic tanks. Don't worry I won't be house the species together. If you're curious what MTS stands for its multi tank syndrome aka having a lot of tanks.. seeing as I am at 19 aquariums and possible getting another its safe to say I have mts... at this moment only 1 of the 19 is an aquaponic system but I'll soon have 2 75gs (for tilapia) and 4 betta tanks also set up for growing edible plants (total will be 7 of 20 tanks used for aquaponics). I come into the
  3. So I've kept pet fish (non edible) for several years and use a dewormer called Prazipro, works great.. Now I'm prepping to keep tilapia as a food fish and was curious what others use as a dewormer medicine? Side question: how much of this dewomer medicine do you use per gallon (or per pound of fish)?
  4. I am setting up my first aquaponics system and I am considering either tilapia, bluegill, or crappie. Which would you suggest? I live in KY and tilapia require a license. My favorite to eat is crappie but I mostly find information on bluegill. Since they are both sunfish, they can't be that much different to raise.

  6. I am in the planning stage of a new RAS. I have been reading my Small Scale Aquaculture book and it has answered a few of my unknowns. It has also raised some new questions. Having had an aquaponics system running for a little over 2 years, I thought I knew what I was getting into. Nope, this is a new game. So, now I am wondering what to use as a bio-filter. Van Gorder suggest that his RBC is the way to go with a 2000 gallon pool, but he uses 2 55 gallon clarifiers. I am thinking of using a 12 ft. (2000 gal.) above ground pool to raise blue tilapia in central Florida. I was planning on using a
  7. Hi all, I am in need of some expert help on why my fish are dying at a rate of 1-3 per day for two weeks now. I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out what the problem is. Let me give you all the particulars first: I have been running an IBC tote system in a greenhouse for 9 months now (based on Murray Hallum's IBC system) which is a 275 gallon tank with three 4x4.5 foot grow beds and a sump tank. I am using one pump to push water from the sump to the grow beds and fish tank. The fish tank return to sump tank is by gravity siphon and each grow bed is a flood and drain system with a
  8. So I'm getting ready to fill my system once again for another summer (and hopefully winter this time) of Aquaponics joy. I was wondering should I paint my tanks black before I fill them? I was wondering this for two reasons. One it should cut down on the algae population and two to help over winter the tank when the time comes. Thoughts? (EDIT: If a mod could please move this to Aquaponics that's where I meant to post it and I don't see a way to delete it. Thanks!)
  9. Hi, We're starting a new aquaponics system (been running for almost 2 months now) and are having problems with fingerlings dying (1-2 every 1-2 days). The system has matured enough that a range of large fish have been living there comfortably now for the past 3 weeks (had some issues during cycling there but nothing since) and they're generally quite active and feed well. The water parameters all look healthy, Temp between 26-29 deg C (tropics! :-)), ph between 7.2 and 7.6, ammonia < 0.25, nitrite < 0.25, KH between 2-4 deg, sadly hardly any nitrates either but with a very low st
  10. I am shutting down a system and have 100+ Blue Tilapia, juveniles and adults (including breeders) I will give away to a good home. You must be able to transport the fish from Fort Lauderdale, FL area. Email me at jimjallen@aol.com if interested.
  11. I have been into aquaponics in my backyard for over two years now and I am still learning. Now I am planning on getting an aquaculture venture going using above ground pools. I have already found that it is a different game and I accept the challenge. You can see my setup on YouTube by searching for HOWponics. Glad I found my way to the Aquaponics Nation.
  12. Have this system in mind. A picture is worth a 1000 words. Will this work?
  13. Allied Aqua is running a sale on Blue Tilapia Fingerlings. 59 cents each with a minimum purchase of 50 fingerlings. Live Blue Tilapia Fingerlings on sale - 59 cents each Excellent chance to get a great deal and support one of our sponsors at the same time.
  14. I have put together a 10 barrel aquaponics system with an IBC for my fish tank (total system is about 400 gal). I have been cycling for about 3 weeks now and looking to put fish in soon. Does anyone have a recommendation on how many fish I should start with in my system? I am thinking about 75? But I really dont have anything concrete to base that on. Also, is Blue Tilapia a good choice? I live in the Bay Area in Ca and I have been tracking my water temps at 46 deg F for a low and 70 deg F for a high. Does anyone have any recomendations on where to purchase? Thanks everyone!
  15. Here's a great deal for you bargain shoppers out there! We routinely have some extra fingerlings from every production cycle, so we combine them and offer them at a special price to make sure we keep fish efficiently moving from the hatchery. These are the same high quality pure strain tilapia we always provide. They are not hybrids. The fish will be around 3/4 of an inch to 1 1/2 inches. Usually around 1 inch. Typically, you will receive an assortment of at least two pure strain varieties of the following: Blue Tilapia, White Brook White Nile Tilapia, Red Nile Tilapia, Hawaiian Gold Til
  16. Hi, I'm Bob, and new to the site as well as new to the world of aquaponics. I just designed, built, and started up my backyard AP system. I based it on 3 - 275 gallon IBC totes. I have 4 - 75 gallon grow beds filled with clay growing media and 2 - 200 gallon fish tanks (piped together as one). I'm afraid that in my excitement to get it all up and running, I jumped the gun in adding fish to my system. I had it running about a week and I couldn't stand it - I added fish. I did use some "seed" water (water from my friends established AP system) but I think that I have not got the proper bio
  17. Hello, this is my first forum i have ever joined so looking forward to discussions. i have several systems currently in varying stagers of completion from small to this really big one: i would love some constructive criticism and discussion around the system regards and looking forward to sharing luke
  18. Since a lot of people seem to have their own thread that's dedicate to their system, I guess I'll start my own My main goal is to grow some blue tilapia here in Florida, with the plants mostly just for filtration and occasional snacking. I've found a few fairly cheap food-grade 275-gallon IBC totes and I'll probably grab a couple food-grade 55-gallon blue barrels in the near future, too. When I first started looking at various AP setups, I figured I'd do something along the lines of CHOP2. After reading about the limitations of it, I decided to take the advice of Gary and the rest and at l

  23. Hello APHQ family, I'm new here and excited in gearing up for my second season of backyard aquaponics. I'm looking for a supplier of tilapia fingerlings (in Canada) to raise in my greenhouse.
  24. I have a 150 gallon aquaponics system inside a greenhouse that I started in early May (greenhouse just closed in this month). I have 4 grow beds which equal 150 gallons and a 150 gallon underground fish tank with about 35 tilapia which are now 5 to 6 inches long. Everything has gone beautifully -- I've had an incredible crop of tomatoes, peppers, okra and basil. My fish are healthy and the water perfectly clear and balanced. I have red wriggler worms in all the beds. My problem is this morning I have an explosion of aphids in two of the beds, covering the gravel and the pepper and okra plants.
