Re: off topic(painting of fish and such)



I do not like the painted fish and those that want them should have ava.
killifish to but the breeders of them including myself are to cheep to sell
them so the stores can make a profit.


I wish that the AKA would allow some of the man made Albino and other color
morphs be judged in their own class. Albino and Gold gardneri, gold N
Guntheri, albino Rachovie and others.
Flame shields up.



D.B.N.B
Gotta go pick eggs so there will be plenty when you come visit.
as the water changes automatically.
