Re:Near Death Situation

Dear Jeff:

Thanks for the update! It’s good to hear that your finicky Hippocampus reidi is now accepting the frozen Mysis. That will make feeding him much easier and assure that he receives a very nutritious staple diet from now on. You did a good job of keeping him going and tempting him with live foods until he was ready to make the change to the frozen Mysis shrimp instead. Good work!

Don’t worry about your designation as a "Reef Raider," sir. Those nicknames are assigned automatically by the computer and are based solely on the number of posts you have made on this forum. For example, a new member who has only a posted a couple of times is automatically listed as a "Bottom Dweller," whereas I am listed as the "Big Kahuna" simply because I have made the most posts, which is to be expected since I’m one of the moderators for this forum. Bottom Dwellers are automatically upgraded to "Guppies" after they have made a few more posts, and "Guppies" will eventually be upgraded to "Reef Raiders" when they have contributed a certain number of messages. But it’s the computer that ranks posters according to the number of messages they have generated and then provides the tag names accordingly, Jeff, so you can rest assured that the title "Reef Raider" is no reflection on your skills as a marine aquarist and a conscientious hobbyist. The computer has been preprogrammed to spit out these rankings in what I suspect is a light-hearted, humorous effort to encourage the members to participate more actively in the discussions on this forum and thereby earn a more prestigious name tag. After you have made a couple of more posts, the computer will acknowledge your increased contribution by automatically upgrading you from "Reef Raider" to "Coastal Cruiser" instead, and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a "Big Kahuna" in your own right, sir.

Best wishes with all your fishes, Jeff!
