  8. I have Silvers and Catfish in one tank. Have harvested a number of Silvers. They are definitely slow growing over winter... but they do grow to an edible size.
  9. Well... you really do eat well Shane!!! In my case... I eat well too!!! BUT... I really must confess that all I do is CATCH the Fish... my lovely wife cleans... and cooks the Fish!!! When life is good... it is REALLY GOOD!!!

  11. Hi Shane - finished stage 2 today. No - covers not attached... just sitting in channel around the edge of the growbeds. Will strap them down with an elastic strap from side to side - under each end of the growbeds.
  12. Hi Shane - my wife was sick of plant attacks by possums... or rats. She came up with some novel solutions... Plant Covers "Hoot" Owl Sensor Light Trap
  13. Hi All - started with 2 plants from CERES in Brunswick. First year not much growth - no harvesting until this year. Probably should have put more distance between the new plants that came up (allow about 100mm) - they were very crowded when harvesting. I think if they were further apart - they may have grown bigger. Regards - Colin
  14. Hi Gary - simple to grow. I think our weather is not that good... but he... you never know if you don't give it a go. I'll see if I can get instructions up... Shane - Yes... Silver Perch and Stir Fried Water Chestnuts unbelievably "Noice"!!!
  15. Today we harvested our Water Chestnuts... and a Silver Perch. Both ended up on our dinner plates... in a Stir Fry...
