Re: BNL, viruses and nettiquette
The Killietalk list is provided by the American Killifish Association, and
hosted by Active Window Productions. The list is intended to provide a forum
for discussion of all matters related to killifish, by beginners and experts
alike. We hope that the list will act also as a help page for beginners. The
list is open to all, whether members of the AKA or not. Appropriate topics
for discussion include (but are not limited to):
Maintenance of killifish in the aquarium
Breeding of killifish
Biology of killifish
Reports and discussion of collecting trips
