Update Was: Can you identify this (semi) aquatic moss? by Mean_Chlorine

I'm receiving strange email. Is it because I have posted in this newsgroup? by Jimmy
I have been getting email for different addresses all saying the same thing, plus they have an attachment with them that I do not open. This is an example of what one says: ***beginning*** "Hi. I'm sorry I wasn't able to deliver your message to one or more destinations.

Planted Bucket by Sam
I bet the "gray poppyseed" is a fish fry. It probably hitched in on the plant roots. It is most likely a danio or minnow, but hey, you never know. "yelohk" wrote in message ... You know it's funny. I've only started this hobby about six months...
