If your living in Victoria and would like to possibly speak with others in your area, please reply to this post, and give people an idea of where you are (no exact details, town or postcode perhaps) and whether or not you have an aquaponic system. :)

Hi! I am in the process of setting a system up (grow bed ordered from Muzza!) with pump and tank on order. Hope to have the system set up by the end of September (already re-roofed the shed with laser light to house it!). Happy to speak with others. I am based in Albert Park, Melbourne.
Cheers, Marcus

Hi,

Am in Cranbourne, have been spending alot of time reading the threads on here and surfing the net looking for info and other bits n pieces.

Slowly stockpiling all the gear that I pick up from markets etc..oh and yes the dreaded ebay greenhouse(which should have a new frame end of the month). Hope to have some sort of system at test stage also by the end of the month if not early next month...the joys of beng payed once a month :shock:

Huge thanks to Joel and all who contribute to the forum as I have never learned so much in such a short time and finally finding a use at home for the 13 yrs I spent working at the local poo farm in process control lol.

I am in Keysborough (think Dandenong - but about two train stations closer to the city).

I have a system, which I am constantly experimenting with, so it is ugly and changes apearance from week to week. The only constant is that I have about 20 Silver Perch which do not get any commercial fish food. They live quite happily on duckweed, algae, any insects that land in their water, and a few worms a week.

I am planning to build a small system. I picked up a bathtub on the roadside the other day. Heard of this Aquaponics from Jol at the permaculture.org.au some time ago.

I live in Carrum Downs, post code 3201. Hope to get help from you in my new projects

I'm in Albury, which is considered by most of N.S.W. to be in Victoria. I have nothing to show at the moment but am doing a little playing around with ponds,fish and solar/photo-electric power. So far not much to report. Thanks for the forum you guys, Don.

Good luck with the redfin Jim. To add photos, click on post reply, type your message, click add attachment, then browse, then add attachment again, then submit. Make sure the photos are no bigger than 640 x 480. Start your own system thread and keep us updated.!
