Well....<sigh>.....one of the last four messages I typed got through to
the list. I mailed Josh so these points may show up again but I am gonna
try and touch on them lightly. First, I promised to share my ideas on
"natural" setups. The response I got requesting that was tremendous so I
am gonna write it as an article and post it here. I feel it is pertinent
since it has certainly made keeping fish (and especially plants) easier
for me. The reason I didn't reply yet is we just had our first son (VERY
proud father :)), and I have not been able to take time to write much.
Second, someone mentioned using a highlighter on their field guide. I
used that one a few years ago, and it is WELL worth the time it saves in
the Field. However, I don't think that it very accurate to use a drawing
for IDs. I suggest contacting a Life Science Dept at the nearest
University and asking them for a copy of the key they use for that
locale. Last, the $20 light at Home Depot is a halogen, and according to
the Killi list it is not suitable for aquarium use (I was drooling over
them when I saw them too!). As I mentioned in another post BOYCOTT HOME
DEPOT!!! Sorry for the long post, and I promise the tank setup article
will apear soon.
P.S. I remember seeing a bunch of requests and responses for dipnet
info, if no one mentioned Aquatic Ecosystems has a great selection and a
web site. I dont have the address handy right now though.
