Since I can't say what I'd really like to about this hideous comment, I'm just going to say NO! And frankly, this is insulting on many levels.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'd have to agree. He started alot of unnecessary arguments on threads all over this forum, constantly. So even if he was handicapped, that doesn't mean he doesn't get punished/banned like any other member who starts trouble on the site.

I always thought that all the mods handled him very professionally and enforced the rules evenly for all members. I personally had to step away from my computer a few times when I felt I was going to say something that would have gotten me into trouble in regards to something that was posted, so I can truly appreciate the mods being able to remain respectful. We appreciate your dedication and hard work to make this forum a friendly and inviting place to learn and share ideas about these fantastic fish.


As for a disability, I have some things, but I don't consider them too much of a disability, just challenges. Depression that is pretty heavily tied into the fact that I had thyroid cancer a few years back. Not in the way you might think though, it is because I don't have a thyroid any more and have to take a replacement hormone for the rest of my life. Not taking the replacement hormone would mean I would eventually go into a coma and die. The levels in my system have a big impact on how I feel on any given day, and those are checked every 3-4 months. It has actually been 4 years, and only with my most recent test earlier this month did my levels come back in a normal range. Overall things are looking pretty good now.

Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

Thank you! Hopefully it will all work out. It is one of those cancers that strikes pretty young. I was only 19 when I was diagnosed. Though it is also a cancer with both a very low mortality rate, but a higher reoccurrence rate.
I do have to make sure I take my calcium though as the replacement hormone lowers bone density.
