You know... remember that midnight meeting every one had at the old Masonic
Temple under the graveyard at the full moon? Oh ****! I just gave it away.
Hopefully she won't read this or else she will "know" for sure. Damn and I
gave a blood oath and everything.

It goes like this:

TYNK is stalking a little ole granny in Tn. She then calls the sheriff
dept and files a false police report, suggesting you are going to:

Slit her throat
suffocate her with a plastic bag
Poison her fish with cat food.

The water lettuce, I can understand preserving over the winter months in
some parts of the world, but not the duck weed! Do you really find it an
addition to your goldfishes diet? Where I live (gods own county) it is a
real problem controlling the growth of duck weed, even in tanks. At what
point do you experience the last frosts in your part of the world? Do any
other floating plants survive the winter outdoors?

Yes, they really love it. It's hardy here in TN so comes back each spring.
They get it as a treat once a week.

True, unless the fish eat it all, as the goldies do.

point do you experience the last frosts in your part of the world?


Around April 15th to the 20th.

Do any

There are only two tropicals that I've tried. Water lettuce does fine (if
kept in a fishtank) but Water Hyacinths usually don't (too tall so they go
in a south window) make it. Now with the greenhouse I may try and keep a
few over next winter.

Are you known as "TWO-STANDARD-TYNK?" LOL!!! Did you tell your foul
mouth friend that when he changes nyms? If not, why not? I notice you
pretend not to see your friend's nym shifting. Why is that Tynk? Are you
afraid of him? Do you have different standards for different people?
Maybe you need to give it a rest since you're doing more to keep these group
in turmoil to get recruits for your Google aquarium fish group then anyone
else. Why not be honest and just invite new people there instead of
constantly disrupting these groups with your mindless harassment? Learn to
use a killfile.

You're not fooling anyone Carol.


Neither are you. You're clogging up every group with you off-topic
harassment in order to get new members for your private elite hand-picked
little Google group. Then you feel you should also run the Usenet groups as
well. You're out of luck sweetie. These are public groups so you're not the
Queen bee here. You have no more say who does what here than I do.

Why bother?


Why do you bother bothering people who disagree with you?

Once again, you're clogging up every group.


So are you. Pot calling kettle black again?

There was no need to post anything you copied in that "reply".


Then stop doing it. Most of your posts are off-topic harassment posts.

I know this will sound a little strange, but all I have kept over the last
25 years is Marines. This year I thought a plants only freshwater tank would
be interesting, especially with all the CO2 progress that has been made. If
my plant questions come across as 'strange' over the next few months please
forgive me, I'm used to dealing with macro algae's.
Regards David

======================
When you've been on Usenet as long as I have, few things come across as
strange. ;-) There is a "plant man" on the "rec.aquaria.freshwater.plants"
group who is quite knowledgeable about fresh water aquarium plants. I'm
sure he can give you some good advice.
