If you're like me and you always thought it was during the pre-web era of the internet, when the main online meeting points were the alt.aquaria newsgroups, think again! Wink

That is a FANSTASTIC find Marcos!

There are a few tid bits I found interesting:

"We here in Denmark like to plant our tanks very densely." -- In the early 60's??

"on the "melting" of plant leaves, especially in Cryptocorynes." -- Some things never change.

"carbon dioxide aeration helps to eliminate algae." -- An observation I thought was more recently than that.

Again thank you very much.

"DON'T, DON'T, DON'T shake the bottle containing the yeast-sugarwater mixture."

That is about the best quote I've seen related to aquascaping in a while.

But I confess, I'm a bottle-swirler (I use the jello recipe though, so that makes it OK.... right?).
