We have a lot of great forum members and great sponsors here. The way everyone helps each other on this site is what makes this the best Aquarium Site on the web.
Rachel has been trying to help me with one of my insane requests to find the very obscure Sri Lankan Dwarf Shrimp (Caridina simoni simoni) for my very OCDC Sri Lanka Bio-type tank. She's been chasing my Holy Grail and really going out of her way to help me.
While I'd love to think I'm that precious, it's more a matter of Rachel being Rachel. She is always going out of her way to help members here. Something newbies would do well to appreciate when they are posting, "where should I shop" threads.
We have accepted the fact that I'm only getting these shrimp if I fly to Ceylon with a dip net & hip boots. It didn't end there, No, no, no... she continued to helped me with my Back-up plan too. Finding Ceylon Combtails and Banded mountain loach (Acanthocobitis urophthalmus). She did that by referring me to another source. No finical profit on her part, just because it was the right thing to do!!!
Not unlike, the Santa In miracle on 34th street.
I was able to oder my fish today after a long tedious search completing my Bio-Type tank stocking.
Please look beyond $$$ when making purchases for your tanks and consider the importance and value that relationships with Rachel and all our sponsors & fellow members bring.
Rachel, I hope you are totally blushing, Luv ya!
