	Accurate information is provided daily, on this
	list and every other list that has anything to do with fish!
	It is also in every book and in the archives of most of the
	lists on fish. Water changes and reasonable water perameters.
	More water changes and more water changes!! Did I mention
	water changes?

	And there are still people who think the world is flat!

	Well, then, why bring it up?

	Good idea.

	Just possibly irrelavent and, most likely inconclusive at best.

	Sounds like masterbation!

	The archives are full of pertinent information. Why add some-
	thing that is sure to confuse?  Did I mention water changes
	and reasonable water conditions?

	That's all that anyone asks for. Oh, Did I mention water
	changes and reasonable conditions?
