Re: Fishes in the mail. Crawfishes, mollusk, waterbugs ....


We are even up as far as Im concerned I wasn't keeping much
score.................I think you should forward your need for boxes to
the list along with an offer to help the newbies get started ..Never mind
I just did :).....the prob with purchasing boxes is the postage and
storage would kill us... What I have done in the pastt is folks who have
an abundence of boxes will mail em to me and I pay the 2-3 buck postage.
Or they send me several boxs and I send one back with fish in it .....

Maybey you could help Terry stock an in school tank....Maybe the NFC in a
few more monhs will have enough funds to start paying for those little
projects.......BTW I think invert discusussions are very appropriate for
the email list and I encourage folks with an interest to speak
