  1. A little light reading LOL Activities like pet shops, non-commercial domestic aquaponics, and ponds: do not need a fish-farm licence do not need to be registered as a fish farmer. https://www.mpi.govt.nz/fishing-aquaculture/aquaculture-fish-and-shellfish-farming/setting-up-a-land-based-fish-farm/
  2. Very lucky, I have had a similar experience but a lesson well learnt.
  3. Would still require a permit to sell which willinvolve proof of breeding etc.
  4. Definitely in the blood Caryl, Seasons greetings
  5. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2023.
  6. It was last used in 2012 on constitution change document, i have no idea where it is.

  8. Marine will cost more in money and time though 2nd hand purchases will be cheaper and you can use natural saltwater, Local marine will involve a chiller to keep temps down Freshwater allows a wider choice of different biotopes and available species
  9. They are native so can't be sold without a permit but you can collect your own Most streams have these and they can be netted by running a net along the water weeds growing along the sides.

  11. To start your own culture these are on trademe https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/marketplace/pets-animals/fish/fish-food/listing/3832552817 I have usually found them in farm water troughs if you have any local
  12. Unwanted organism https://aquariumworld.nz/databases/1-plants/90-Hydrocleys-nymphoides
  13. Hi, there is usually not enough nutrients in the system until is fully cycled and become a stable living environment, then you can add a piece of rock with copepods to the system.
  14. The hardest part is keeping the water in the tank while travelling, i have used clip down lid eskys before with a battery operated pump powering an airstone and a riser pipe to allow airflow back out opf the container, that and screw top buckets has been the most successful.
  15. Surprising that you lost reptiles as if set up properly they should go into brumation ans sleep for a few months if needed.
