Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #472



I'm adding my 3 ($0.02) worth :-) to this discussion. I haven't seen 
AFF/FFF's for years but, I see a lot of Amano's little naps, the lovable 
Yamato Numa Ebi, Sugi Ebi, Te Nagai Ebi, Moh Ebi etc...(I'm all ebi'd out) 
and they are literally
12 a dozen here in Tokyo. About the only bad thing I can say about these 
are they disappear down my bettas gullets as fast as I catch them. i guess 
this is a neverending story, unless you know of a way to train B edithae to 
not such bloody gluttons.

James let's use the "Borg" classification! Remember, it is useless to 
resist. We will asimilate you, make you wear poorly cut navy blue suits and 
drink 47 times your weight in cheap "Shochu" (Japanese Gin) on a daily 
basis. ;-)

I agree as I had the same problem with SAE's.
