That's interesting about the taste of the honey, I hadn't heard that before. Thanks for the review Skeggley.

I'm almost tempted to bite the bullet, but the price tag keeps putting the brakes on, a couple of hundred dollars cheaper and I wouldn't hesitate.

I keep researching and still can't make up my mind, as Skeggley said there's a bit of bad press out there on the Flow Hive, and I think most of the bad press is just a case of sour grapes.

As Skegg said teething problems and poor quality knock-offs are about the only drawbacks I've found so far.

Gidday Martin, hope alls well.
The larger system is still ticking over but the smaller one is idle. No fish in it and I'm deciding whether to sell it or move it.
Still havnt had a silver perch yet so the large tank is full of fish and really needs thinning out. No trout this year, it seems Troutman slipped through without my knowledge so no trout this year for the first time. I still have trout in the freezer so no biggie.
Still having issues with roots getting into the buried pipe work which has the blue barrel addition out of action also.
I'm still planting in the other beds and it just keeps doing its thing which is why I like AP!


Good to hear some of it is still going strong. :thumbright:
Lots of silver perch in the tank and trout in the freezer, not a lot to complain about then. :cheers:

And by the way Martin, stop lurking and hurry up and get an AP system going, surely you've done enough research by now...


Hey man, your comment was a good jolt. I really do need to get something going on with an AP system. I have a ton of excuses though! :D

The biggie was that we emigrated from South Africa to New Zealand. Really cleaned me out. But we're turning the corner now and the finances are starting to not be so stressful. As things change over the next year I can see that opportunities will arise. So thanks Skeg, you're totally right - I do need to do something. I am dead keen, just need to make sure we're able to take it on. Renting also presents it's own challenges. :?

I think the day I break ground on it I will name it "The Most Overdue AP System in The History of the Universe" what do you think?

I'm getting the hang of filleting these trout. :cheers:
Slowly working out way through the freezer stock.
Definitely easier pin boning the larger fish but still a pain.
