Re: NFC: Fw: [LIVEBEARERS] Black Banded Sunfish

The ramz horny snailz problem has been solved; it was either a lack of
calcium or the water chemistry was to acidic. It seems since I was using
straight rain water there was insufficient calcium in the water and the
shells were depleting. I have since added dolomite to the water in an
attempt to reverse the process.  If I get an abundance of Blackbanded
Sunfish I will inform you. At any rate I should have an adequate supply next
year, since any I acquire will be put into outdoor pools to breed.
