AA has members that are always helpful and rarely condescending. Keep it up, AA! You're making this awesome hobby so much better for us newbies!
I completely agree. I live in a small military town in NC. We have 3 lfs
, and a Petsmart. These forums are where I've gotten the best advice. The lfs
guys are ok, they are great guys in fact, but some of the techniques are old, so this forum in particular has been very helpful in getting me started. I'm happy the folks here don't talk down to me or the other newbies. It's almost like they remember when they first started! Crazy talk, I know.
