Rupe, I guess its buyer beware right? Its a good time for these sketchy people, AP is so new you could easily be the "expert" and there's no way to check.

I've heard so much garbage and misinformation from "experts" and seen the listeners eat up the info like they were real experts, its disgusting.

This all bothers me, I hate to see people get so disenchanted with AP.

Ooops, missed it..

Yeah shut down, we needed to refocus on what we were doing. It was costing us at least a day a week labour plus materials and feed and power to run it while we weren't actually selling anything. We had to cover the whole area to continue running the systems because of the problem with muck blowing in from nearby trees, and we couldn't really justify the costs of continuing the trials.

Hey Joel,

What brand are the fish tanks you had?... especially the smaller conical ones....

We're currently in the process of purchasing a few and want to compare several brands...

Thanks!

Hi Joel, just a question - how do you sterilise rafts?

Regards, Martin.

Sorry Farmcore, missed that.. You are in a different country, not really easy to compare..

Martin, I think we used bleach for memory, or perhaps even nothing, we may have started to realize that things just weren't growing..

Just curious, you said that things weren't growing from the gum leaves getting into the system.

I've got a few large gums in neighbours properties. How many leaves did it take getting into the system to stop or slow growth? Was it masses, or just a few handfuls?

Thanks
