Re: Hey killie keepers
I have gotten an email from someone to let me know that it might not be
a good idea to recruit through killietalk.
So I wanted to drop a line to apologize if I offended anyone.
But I wanted to post the message because I think a lot of people are
looking for local groups to meet other hobbyists. I did not write this
message because I am the Board member. I am not one who might be an
expert in the hobby or anything like that, I am still more like a
beginner. I mentioned about it because I benefited a lot from other
local members. So my intention was not really recruiting, it was more of
sharing the benefits. So I did not notice that some people could take
I could have sent the email to one individual, but I felt that some
other people in the are might be looking for the same, but did not post.
Four, Five years ago, I started off by keeping the betta in one jar at
college dorm room, then found out about the aquairum society 2 yrs ago.
Now I have variety of fishes, bigger fish tanks. I even keep two
killifishes now. I do much better now because of help from mailing list
like killietalk and local members whom I met through local aquarium
society. So from my point of view, I did not find my message offensive,
but I apologize for others who might not like my thought.
