    Fish Wanted for Aquaponics Setup

    Looking to purchase or trade for fish suitable for an aquaponics operation. Suitable fish include goldfish, koi, tilapia, pacu, or other hardy fish that like a neutral or slightly acidic pH, don't kill each other, eat a lot and poop a lot and live a long time. Very large fish OK. Can pick them up in most parts of Nova Scotia.

    swimming pool

    Yes. They get very big and live a long time. I am currently building a 900 gallon plywood tank to start, then will build a 2,500 gallon concrete pool.

    Once the really big tank is done I will be looking for a school (herd) of red belly Pacu.

    if you put a ad out for big fish you'd be surprised how many people have big fish they want to rehome. if you get the 900 built let me know, i have a few big fish i might donate.
