No problem!!

If the allegations are proven true, then they'll hopefully get what they deserve. I remember seeing a thread on another forum regarding this place, and someone posted a pic of a fish that they bought, some type of angel I believe. They had a dime next to it, and the fish was nearly half the size of the dime!!! Someone immediately pointed out that the harvest regs for this fish was something like 1 1/2" or 2", and that they likely had an illegal fish...... sounds like something that's been occurring for some time.

That's very disappointing

But their business is toast now even if they don't go to prison

Tis a shame if true. If he is found guilty, I hope he gets the maximum. Lets remember innocent until proven guilty though.
