In Response To: Re: RE-release of captive fish (Suzanne & Mark)

Suzanne & Mark: I was not questioning your aquarium(s) water quality, as EVERY aquarium has nasties in it, but they seldom manifest themselves unless the fish are in a weakened/stressed state.My only intention was to make you aware of the potential damage that could be done to wild populations by the introduction of fish from captive environments.Prior to posting,I sent an e-mail to BB, asking for his(far more knowledgable than I)input...I believe the e-mail you received was from him, as it was CC'd to me.There is a lot of info in there(which I havent yet had time to review), and although it may not be strictly "on topic", I believe others may find some of it of some interest. If you agree, I will leave it to you to cut and paste it into a post......

Regards,James
