I've just E-mailed Jeff with my thoughts on the new look of Aquaweb and LOL, and that sent me thinking back over the time since I discovered it. I've kept fish for 30several years, but until this year hadn't actually kept loaches for reasons I can't even remember. I had surfed around various web sites as a lurker, but never felt inspired by too much I read until I hit on LOL via a link. I found the dedication and knowledge of the people on here( Joe Loach, JD and Cinder for instance) to be extremely inspiring and often extremely amusing as well. So enthused was I that I went out and bought 4 Clown Loaches and promptly fell in love with them. The rest is history
