Of course we missed you Chris. I love reading your posts and you sharing your tanks. I'm happy that you're OK now and back in the NANFA aquarium world
Thank you Chasmodes and Nick for your words of support and comfort. I very much appreciate it!
Life has been miserable and extremely painful over the past 40 years of my life from multiple forms of abuse and trauma. This abuse and trauma manifested itself about 2 years ago. The past 20 months have been even worse. I have been trying to focus on God, my kids, family, friends and native fish, and in that sequence. I have to return to some semblance of normalcy.
That being said, God has blessed us with an abundance of incredibly beautiful aquatic creatures to enjoy, take care of and respect. Even the lowly creek chub and bluntnose minnow is beautiful with its shiny flashes of silvery purple in the sunlight.
I cannot apologize for referencing to God for creating these beautiful creatures, but who else could create such beauty?! If I have overstepped my bounds, please let me know.
Thanks again for your concern and well-wishes.

Best in safe and legal collecting!
