Q&A Letter Spotlight

M.C. Raúl Antonio Aguilar Castillejos writes to Bob about:
System Update, Plenum & Freshwater

Dear Mr. Goemans: I wrote you a year ago (see below the letter) about the installation of a Freshwater plenum, and where you responded that I should remove the anti-dig mesh screen. I also made another change and used for the gravel 3 - 5 mm clay (In fact I use cat clay, without any additive of course). Do you remember? "I'm going to start a new system with a 36''L x 15''H x 10''W aquarium. This will be a freshwater tank with 30 Paracherodon axelrodi and 4 Microgeophagus ramirezi and a lot of plants. I'll use a plenum as its main filtration system (I think I'll be the first in Mexico more.

Book Review of Aquarium Sharks & Rays

By Scott W. Michael

TITLE: Aquarium Sharks & Rays AUTHOR: Scott W. Michael PUBLISHER: Microcosm/T.F.H. (2001) ISBN 1-890087-57-2 PAGES: 256 PRICE: $44.95 (Hardcover) SHARKS ­ actually not one of my favorite subjects! And, how right Martin Moe Jr. is when he writes in the Foreword about no other animal creating such fear in the human mind. My mind was and remains one of those! I was born and raised in the Long Island New York area and spent many hours swimming in the Amityville area. Of course the movie 'Jaws' later made that area famous. In fact, I still remember lifting my feet off more.
