Aquarium Frontiers Magazine

Recently there was some discussion of the Aquarium Frontiers Magazine, and
there was a request to see the table of contents from some previous issues, as
a way to judge whether individuals might be interested in getting the
magazine.  So (at the risk of sounding like an advert :-)), I finally copied
some stuff out of my most recent issue, as follows.  I do think the magazine
is good, and tries to maintain a high level of information content and
accuracy.  It is relatively new, and started with the premise that people
would be willing to pay more, to get more depth (even for fewer issues and
total pages).  However, since then, it has gone through a couple of price
splits, and page # increases (it's still only something like 30 pages?).

So here's the info:
