 Post subject: George's System
PostPosted: Jul 18th, '09, 20:41 
Received an enquiry for some trout a couple of weeks ago ... from George up in Erina...

Didn't have my camera at the time, but made sure I had it when I delivered some feed for him today....

I'm sure that George will introduce himself sometime.. but in the meantime, I though I might share some pictures of his AP system that he's quietly gone about building over the last year or so...

Besides the 50 trout, and some Ellgro NFT running outside...

George has Silver Perch as well.... growing inside his greenhouse... somewhere, in amongst the tomatos..

I'll let George describe how everything works... but interestingly... he uses airlifts within his tank... including as the feed to his NFT above the Perch tank....

The things your find when you least expect it... nice work George...

Report just in.
I heard that George is very happy with his trout and they are growing well whilst splashing his visitors. Thats why we love the trout.
Look forward to catching up in November George :hello2:
