    Hi Alfie/DR.

    Could I also ask for some chaeto? DR, if you have enough to go around, I would really appreciate some. After my tank crash in January, the chaeto that I had (which Rory gave me last year, died off with all the other life in my tank).

    Many thanks.
    Jacques
    PS: I also work in town.

    Alfie - do you know where the LFS in Bree str is? I work a block up from there (also in Bree str)....
    We can make arrangements perhaps to meet at the LFS?

    Hi Anthony.... Alfie.... Any news on the chaeto? Many thanks.
    Jacques
    BTW: it's amazing that there's no LFS that grows/keeps chaeto in Cape Town (that I know of)....

    Hi Alfie - Galibore has posted (snail-mail) me some chaeto this past weekend (it has not arrived yet).... I will see if it survives, and how much he has posted me. IF enough, I will contact you again soon to arrange a meeting, and then I'll give you some of this....

    Thanks in any case....

    Cheers!
    Jacques

    Hi Alfie - I got a little bit of chaeto from Galibore (Andre). I will just have to wait for it to grow some, then, if you still have not had any from anyone else, I will contact you to give you some - I will just have to wait for it to grow a bit.....
