Re: Questions from a new guy

Welcome to the hobby Rick,
    When your membership to the AKA is processed, you will recieve a book
called the "Begginers Guide."  It has all of the general info. needed to
start up.
    The best thing to do would be to read anything you can get your hands
on.  Go over the archives of this list and get ahold of some printed
material that you can use as a reference.  A great place to get books is at
the Aquatic Bookshop.  It is owned by Jim Forshey and he is very
knowledgeable and able to help with both fish and books about them.
His website is www.seahorses.com There you will find a wealth of books
avaliable about all kinds of fish, including killies.  Jim has kept and
breed many killies over the years.  He is the one who invited me into his
fishroom and gave me my first pair of killies 10 years ago.  Great guy, lots
of books.
    Of course those of us on this list will be willing to help you, but it
will be much easier for you to understand our sometimes vauge answers if you
have read alot of published material first.  Also, your questions have
probably been asked and answered and can be found in the archives.
    That said, I am sure I am not alone when I say that we will be more than
happy to help you.
    Dan Hodnett
