Forwarded email.  Folks, remember to address your contributions to the
list to aquatic-plants at actwin_com, NOT owner-aquatic-plants at actwin_com.
This speeds things up, and spares wear and tear on my fingers :-).
Hitting "Reply" in response to an incoming issue of the APD will give
you the right address.

Yeah, it's a safe bet that anything that says Dupla for $1 is a bargain -
heck, I think they charge more than that just to stand next to the counter
and =look= like you're going to buy Dupla :-) 

Oh well - if anyone needs some Dupla supplimental heating cables, I can
fix you up cheap.  At least 50% retail :-)
