Hi GS.

Thanks for the welcome.

Fish and fishing has always been my obsession.

I have been a tornament fisherman all my life and was once heavily involved with NSW Fisheries doing capture and research on Trout cod and numerous other species of freshwater fish along with major restocking programs.

Also heavily involved with the acid sulphate soils dilemma along our coastlines which has caused the deaths of millions of fish so breeding a few cichlids helps fill the days in now.

Another dozen tanks and a few more fishies and I should be happy,lol.
