I agree in agreement ;) Seriously, if more people did this, you know the
story, there'd be fewer crappy fish around...

I can say this in the knowledge that Peter Unmack is away for a couple more
days yet... he'll tell us that it could be due to more factors than just
genetic, and that a crappy specimen can sire (or dam) a good one, if the bad
one is bad because it was raised in a toilet bowl.
