Re: [APD] Re: Ozone

And the "dwarf" plecos, such as Ancistrus, can be very
useful, too, as aglae eaters. They're a bit tough on the
Ottelia ulvifolia, the leaves of which are much thinner and
more tender than, for example, E. bleheri. But generally,
the cause no harm to the plants on which they graze and
scrub things down like an oto on uppers.

And apparently, given good hiding places, they are to too
hard to get to breed either.

How long can you wait until the good air fares are gone? 
The AGA 2004 Convention is bit over two months away. But "last minute" fares can be pricey. Not to mention the Banquet and Field trip have limited capacity. Take time to make your plans but don't wait too long.
