im just starting an aquaponics system to allow me to bring my tilapia and gardening indoors for the winter. My system design will be a bit less traditional as I hope to include decor issues in its execution.
Currently, I have 55 tilapia growing in my garden pond. I purchased the fingerlings and introduced them on June 3rd. They initially seemed to accept the pond, but I spent three days thinking I'd lost all of them even though I could find no bodies. I emptied the plants from the pond looking for them and even searched my bio filter thinking they might have gotten in and were unable to get out. Finally I caught sight of a few of the stealthy guys. Even now, they are hard to see if the water is not calm.
