He is still here, just not selling bunches at the moment. So all is semi-fine..the first time I felt lost was when he gave me the ID of a shrimp I bought then I went to his website to figure out the price and the website was gone...Was a rare site with helpful info and great shrimp it shall be missed.. Hope all the medical bills get straightened out.

My job is switching insurance providers as well at the end of the year. This seems to be the trend with this current president.

Watch out, politics are strictly against the rules here. I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but you should take out the second part before something bad happens.

It's my employer. We always get the cheapest available, every year. Plus we pay 25% of our premiums and 100% for dependants. Been that way for 10 years, its just that the cheapeat insurance is now very bad insurance.

It's amazing how much healthcare costs if something does happen to you. About a month ago I had a shoulder impingement surgery (injured at gym) and they charged my insurance $45k for the procedure. I didn't pay anything but I can't imagine if I did not have insurance or had something that only partially covered the surgery.

I hope it all works out for you so you can 100% focus on shrimp.

Growing up in Canada, I can't imagine what it's like to have to worry about that. I can go to any hospital I want and get whatever needs to be done. I'm self-employed and have probably used at least $250,000 worth of health insurance throughout my life, probably a lot more.

Anyways, get better Liam and there is lots of free ecomerce solutions out there if you're interested or need cheap hosting or help setting something up, let me know.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Get well soon! May everything smooth out soon for you and your family!

I have appreciated Liam's expertise in this hobby and his patience with us noobies are doubly appreciated. CBS I got from him are the only Crystals that I have been able to breed - quality, quality, quality!
