    Just saw an ad on CL. $1 for 1-2 inch fingerlings pickup or local delivery located in Spring Hill. Maybe call about shipping.
    People cry because they are sad. For example, I cry because other people are stupid, and that makes me sad.

    Re: blue tilapia

    ok, since you asked. what is the ideal ph to breed and raise blue tilapia. i heard that they won't breed in a 7.0 ph is that correct? since i heard that information i converted my aquaponics to a fish only system because i raised the ph to about 7.6 by adding coral to the system now the nutrients are not available to the plants. I also heard the temperature has to be a constant 80 degrees also. that is kind of hard to do in south florida. any help greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    I'm in southwest Florida, Mark. I have blue tilapia in both systems. My pH in one system is 7.6 and in the other 8.3. (7.6 system has a heavier biological load.) Temps have been fluctuating between 76f at night and 83F daytime. Fish and plants in both systems seem to be doing just fine. I wouldn't worry about the pH until you get the tilapia established and things have hit some sort of system equilibrium for a while.
