Havn't tried selling any runners yet, but i bought them as 4 little polish strawberry plants from marion markets 3 years ago, and now there must be over 200, and all growing runners! so i figured i might try the market too...

First of all beautiful looking growth in your system.. :thumbright: Secondly are there any special tricks to keeping strawberry plants going year after year,i have ten young plants that won’t produce fruit this year so i would like to keep them for next,maybe do the same with the runners as well.

Thanks for the kind words! But no tricks i know of sorry, these things just grow like crazy. They send off runners 3 times a year, and fruit 2 - 3 times a year, we even have plants with flowers, fruit, and runners all at the same time! Might just be lucky with the variety (polish)

Trutta Solo is doing well, started eating properly a few weeks ago. Been mixing it up between seasol and worm juice, now using a mineralization tank (240l wheelie bin with a big airstone).

Strawberry leaves started growing white before i switched to MT juice instead, but it had been a while between adding anything - seems the new leaves are a better colour, so hope the deficiency is solved - see how it goes...

All going well, FT temp at 27c after a a couple of days of 40c air, still putting off getting fingerlings until we see what march is like for heat.

AND finally got a sump tank and installed, will be plumbed as CHIFT PIST (with a small pump in the FT still going to the rff and the grow tubs) Had to dig another 7 barrow loads of clay to fit it - in 40c heat!

Next step is a big poly tunnel hot house (shade in summer) in the back veg patch and pump from the new sump!

Picking up trout fingerlings this week, my tank temps are under 20 now. Trutta solo is still going strong, around 35cms now, this year ill keep a few more going thru summer!

Im chuffed with how much produce has come out of the gb's - we have eaten something from the ponics almost every night for the past 11 months, some meals have been only from the ponics -awesome!

Still wanting murray cod - can separate trout and cod now with the sump tank in place. And i have more gb's on the make - big expansion soon to come.

Murray cod are tricky fish, so be warned.

These guys are posting them now:
http://www.narrabrifishfarm.com.au/narrabri-fish-farm

1Aquaponics do them for 3x the price, and even more if you order anything under 100. But no postage if you drive to Lewiston.

Ahh bugger! Yeah i had an order in with narrabri, was hoping to grow a couple of cod out to monsters... In what way(s) are they tricky Col? Water quality, temp, eating each other?

They are fussy eaters, hard to keep on pellets. I had very little luck. They they were just eating each other too much.

Gungulla has some, said he's gone from 80 to 30 from them eating each other (from memory).

Plus they are very shy fish, mine would always try and hide in the tank, never coming to the top, I could hardly tell they were in there.

100 new rainbows added to the family. Bought as 5 inch, but really they range from 2.5 up to 6 inches. Put em in the sump for now, so i moved the yabbies out; thought to check if i could tell apart males from females - turns out its really easy - when they're stuffed with eggs!! Couldnt be more surprised than to find 2 big mommas with berries, so now i need a new yabbie hatchery... will put up a pic later. Its like christmas over again! :thumbright:

These new trout are just smashing at the food!! Sounds like a school of piranhas in a hollywood movie! I'll have to TRY and be careful not to overfeed em cause otherwise they wont stop eating! Expecting big things this year...

Time to install a backup power system - theres too much to lose now if theres a fault. I think i'll keep it simple with just an air pump running from a solenoid to the battery - maybe a battery charger plugged into a mechanical timer to charge for 15 or 30 mins a day?

Hi Dan
Colum & I bought a batch of cod last year. I have had a little more success I think than he did, but not much. I have between 6 & 8 left from 40! I know a few died, but where the rest went is a mystery. They are in with 35 SPs so I presume safe from them so I guess it was cannibalism. The few I have left are about 6-8 inches long & blue grey colour - beautiful fish.
