Re: [AGA Member] Aquabotanic Aquascaping Contest -- And the price of Admission

Do not despair. Every mail list, especially those that are
not censored, gets it's share of arguments, sidetracks,
occasional flames, and out and out barfights.  But the AGA
and APD lists have much fewer of them than many other

On the whole, the aquatic hobbyists seem to be a rather
civilized collection of folks.

There's lots of good info on the AGA and APD lists and both
basic and advanced gardening questions usually get
addresssed. In the last few of years I've found more useful
info on those two lists and thekrib.com than from other
sources in many many years of keeping aquaria.

Stick with it a while longer; I believe you will be glad
you did.

None of this "sidetrack" stuff shows up in TAG, the journal
you receive as part of your AGA membership. The TAG editor,
Karen Randall, does an absolutely terrific job of bringing
excellent material to members each month. Imo, TAG alone is
worth the price of admission. The mail list is just a
bonus, even if it requires one to selectively scan and skip
some of the messages that don't interest you.
