I wouldn't complain if the digest was somehow able to organize itself into
threads. You can always go to the archives if you want to read a full thread

I don't think I would miss the newby questions; they seem endlessly
repetitious. Of course, without that source of endless questions, the
experts wouldn't be stimulated to come up with new interpretations or
aspects of old problems.

As for the volume declining, it was getting hard to keep up with the volume
when I dropped out a couple years ago. Only now am I feeling that I'd like a
few more interesting messages in my inbox.

Oh yes, I'm back. BTW, I do have clay fertilizer balls for sale but its not
much of a commercial venture. Is the price too high?

Some days I think about getting out of the aquarium hobby so if anyone is in
the market for a complete high-tech CO2 system (2 outlets or 4 outlets) or a
9' aquarium stand that holds 6 20 gallon tanks or plants or fish, send me an
email. I'm in Vancouver, BC so think twice about shipping costs.
