    Hi all,

    Herbert Axelrod has died: https://theviolinchannel.com/controversial-string-instrument-collector-herbert-axelrod-died/ There are more entertaining posts on Facebook...

    If you grew up in the hobby reading TFH magazine and/or books then this is probably sad news. Those of you that didn't know much about him, next time you visit a pet store, pretty much all the bread-and-butter fish in the shop were discovered or introduced by him. If you know much about the man then you probably expect a long line of people to be queuing at his grave to dance a jig to the tune of a fake Stradivarius violin.

    Some one tell Bert Polling he no longer has to worry about the health of his fish.*

    *The story goes that whenever Bert hears the name Axelrod he starts medicating his fish.
