Re: Now cold and killies was:Re: membership
Hi Mach, Martin Tversted in Denmark overwinters several species of fish in cold temps and has told me they go into a sort of hibernation. These are cold tolerant fish. He may be able to give you some info on this subject. He can be reached at martinrt at email_dk
Thank you all for answering my green australe question. I haven't seen the fish yet, but might see them this friday :) Ron
