I actually sent you an email a couple of months ago asking if you wanted a free copy of it to look it over; it probably went to the spam folder since I used a free Yahoo email address.
You're4 probably right, I've requested one now though. ;)

If you could get that book down to about 20 pages, I think it would sell at LFS.

I also am a lover of GF: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=28973
I've been putting some serious thought into it. However, formatting a book to release online is world's different from offline formatting; I'm not sure I could afford to manage that one right now. There are a few privately owned local pet stores around here that I'm pretty sure I would have a good shot at if I ever did, though.

The main appeal to me right now with keeping it as an ebook is that I can release new versions for free to anyone that buys the book so it's a constantly updated resource. I'm sure I could figure out a way to do that with a paper copy, as well.

We used to have quite a few large goldfish tanks set up until we left for a short trip, friend was specifically asked not to touch the tanks, came back and found out they had, and several of our favorites were belly up - I'll never make the mistake of leaving the food bottle out again. I was too attached to most of them to consider replacing them right now; I would be just as horrified if any of our puffers died, too.

That's a gorgeous goldfish - I think he'd do well in a show! Have you found one yet?

I'm friends with Bob Fenner. He's always asking me to write something.

I just happen to really like puffers, as well. The website you're referring to - thatfishlady .com - is just one that I'm trying to put together as a hub for all the fish-related ebooks I write. However, I'm not actively working on it right now. I am actively working on putting freshwaterpufferfish .org together, though.
I posted on your website before :)
Kind regards,
