1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    I let a few silvers go in a small dam a year ago.
    The water was so clear the other day I could see into the bottom and weeds easily.
    I could not see any larger fish.
    Is it possible the birds got them all, there were only about 20.

    Hi Watercat

    I doubt the silvers we are talking about would not be available in the states. These are a native fresh water fish of Australia.

    I'd guess that they are still alive and hiding under sticks and branches, or other cover. You may have to use a lure or drain the dam to find them
