    ponds and aquaponics set ups and chat

    Sorry if this ends up on a reply to your post. Not sure how this new thing works. Current pond build. This is the 1st customer who has allowed me to take photos of job; because this one has nothing illegal growing around it lol. 16m2 Monolithic foundation with 640mm high core fill block wall. Estimated around 8,000 liter. EvolutionAqua eazy pod with static k1 and 200 liter overflow box with fluidised k1. 1500mm x 400mm acrylic viewing panel. Under water wall lights and external wall path lights. Awesome job qldaf team.... looks like i can keep updating the post! If you want me to build a pond.... Foundation will require minimum of 7 day settlement before block wall comences. Foundation will require minimum of 21 day settlement before core fill comences. I do not rush pond builds! Most ponds under 20m2 are dug out by hand. Machines destroy the surroundings and the operator will most likely brake something. My ponds are engineered and hardcore! Literally

    AAA grade fish on facebook

    No such thing as A grade or AAAAA anything, a fish is either what its supposed to be or its poor quality... one or the other and thats it.
  8. no, but they will eventually tax you on the rain water you can hold lol
  9. I was told there is a limit..... 10,000 liters gets classed as fish farming, where permits are required. however there are ways around it through different classifications.

    Yes the asian trade is what ends up in most chain stores.... and i heard of a local guy who runs a quarantine in brisbane south does the same; Chucks them all in a big pond and lets them go and them just plucks them out to sell to stores.

    I'm not interested in selling 1 fish. I sell to people who want an entire display aquarium of them.

    Australia has ruined most of the pure strains by improper breeding and lack of knowledge on the genus, (mainly stores have done this) which has turned off quite a few people. If you asked a store about the peacock market they would say it's not that great; however if they actually sold them in the right way it may be a different story. mbuna are at the top of the game with Africans; only due to there abundance and affordability.... and let's not forget..... mbuna are fast growing unlike aulonocara.

    I have around 40 customers around Australia waiting for orders atm... so you could say there is a decent market. ..... for quality!

    Not one of the bigger markets. When I make a sale people usually buy every species I have. I turn down people all the time due to there main objective of wanting females for breeding.
