    of the year, which is enough to grow them out to ~30cm

  4. Are you using a pool? What are they in? And where do you live that the
    climate is good for them, I’m in BC, Canada, would that work? Thanks!!

  5. could you just bury the tank 3 feet down, a lot of work but it would keep
    the water at a constant 50, no?

  7. I live in northeastern Ontario canada and would love to set up a aquaponics
    system with trout in it. Where abouts are you located so i could compare
    temperatures here. I would like to make my system out of a ibc tote.Would
    it work? I cant grow outside during the winter and would it be too warm to
    d it my heated garage? I was thinking of putting the ibc tote tank for the
    trout out side and piping the water inside the house where i would grow
    vegtables under a grow light. would this work?

  8. Hello sjgemmell , I live in north eastern ontario, canada . I think your
    system would work here. Where abouts are you? and what is your growing
    time? aswell as average temperatures? Growing season here is from early
    june to about the first part of september. Have you ever thought about
    trying triploid rainbow trout? I once raised them in a large grow out pond.
    They went fron under a pound to 5.5 lbs in 18 months. Wish I could find
    them again :)
