    What an appalling listing. Capitals all the way through with absolutely no attention to detail and poor spelling. The type of seller I stay well clear of.

    See somebody has made an offer though.

    "EXCELLENT SNAIL THAT WILL EAT ALL THE WASTE ECT AND THATS INCLUDEINF THE POO"

    Since when do snails eat poo. Since when does anything eat poo? (I'm sure one thing does to prove me wrong but I have no idea what)

    OOOh a dung beetle? Ed feel free to name a few to make me feel thick ;) You know what I mean though, what in the aquarium eats poo? Nope, nope, you'll just have to pull your finger out and clean it yourself. I was once very sarcastic about that to a customer, with a smile on my face so they couldn't get too cross :twisted:

    Between that and when they say (insert terrible thing here like 5 goldies in a 20 litre tank) "but the fish are perfectly fine". My reply? "Well unfortunately it's not like the fish go round with smiles on their faces to let us know but I can assure you they are not". Hehehehehehe :twisted:

    You can't put a sentence like that in a conversation about eating poo. It's just wrong.

    Sorry didn't mean it to sound like that (though I'm not sure how I did mean it to sound to be honest!). Aquarium Coprophages are rare aren't they and what people don't realise is that they then still poo out everything that wasn't edible even if they do eat the poo! (Can't believe I'm typing this post and using the word 'poo' all the way through it!!!!)

    Hehe. Well, I didn't start talking poo...

    Maybe we should turn this into an Optomistic Ebayer's name and shame thread ;)

    Oh no np, I was just sure that as I couldn't think of any, there would be tons, then I'd be like doh! (Having a bad day yesterday, though my englerlish is poor most days).

    Bugs- lol

    And FYI unless you want some disturbing info do not search coprophages(sp) on wikipedia... There was some info there I could do without :wideyed:


    Steve- we would be here ALL day if we named and shamed every poor ebay seller :lol:
