Dear LO'ers, dear At,

Thank you for your reply and thank you for your "moncat"-fish example:

I had a look at Clarius, the walking catfish. It looks not too sympathetic
:-) But was there a hidden goal or was it just accident - when I tried to
open the pages of Loricariidae my internet connection failed. These
species must have a really well acting protection system :-)

Well At, I do not know what to write - hoping for you that your home PC
will function again and that your Kingdom has not crashed too, or to wish
you a quiet and restful home to enjoy the family, fishes and plants
(instead of sitting behind such stupid aparatus) :-)))

With love,
