As for www.aquacraft.net the information offered is from a wide variety of professional and independent sources. In most cases, this information is the culmination of decades of diligent work. We offer no opinions. Only facts. We report. You decide.
In the last issue of “Take the Heat” I described a self proclaimed Internet aqua-guru that offered statements and ‘opinions‘ that reflected his less than GED mentality. Apparently, he offended the majority of others in the chat room with a variety of other remarks. He was singled out in a friendly aol chat room ballot as “Jerk of The Year 1999”. When he received word of his… award, he was very upset. He told the chat room “…goodbye.” But, like a revenue agent or nasty rash, he will not go away.
The latest performances by the same individual defy intelligence. Within a few days of his return, he stated in the aol Pets Fish chat room the following… 1)”Sea horses are the most difficult fish to keep.” When I read this I though of a 13 year old that is currently breeding sea horses. 2) He then admitted to over dosing his reef tank with Tropic Marin® calcium and his aquarium water was now milky. This is a classic example of misinformation that is offered by wannabe’s on the net.
