    To all of you crazy about fish and aquatic plants! I would like to tell you that on thursday 3 of April your fellow member Wikus pass away after tragic aciddent at work.

    On his behalf I would like to thank you for all the knowledge and advice you give him.
    He loved his aquascaping and this site. And even you didnt knew each other in person all of you ment a lot to him.

    Every day he would come home from work he would switch his computer on, drank his coffie and talk to you guys...

    I also want to thank to profesor, Gert and Sollex for all the preasants you send us....It was for both of us like a opening a Christmass boxes....
