    Felt grateful and proud of being a fishlorian

    Anyone else from Ireland

    This post is very similar to one I posted sometime ago.. so please let me assure every one here, no matter how much experience you have, or think you may have, when it comes to keeping your fish healthy and happy, there are too many variables that can occur to change things from good to bad with...
