We are building an urban farm in Los Angeles CA. 
Our goal is an Aquaponic garden that not only raises fish and vegetables but the food for tilapia. 
By mimicking intensive grazing techniques for cattle our tanks are long and narrow with fencing gates that will allow Filamentous algae to grow and be grazed as we open the gates.
This will feed our mature tilapia. For the fry and fingerlings we are collecting mud from local wild rivers to seed small water fleas and whatnot for protein sources.
Has anyone else had success with these types of approaches?
