We have been saddened to have lost a family member and friend to many here and around the GTA. My cousin Gino Ciardullo (Rush2112) has been battling Cancer and took his last breath yesterday. He has spoken highly about the many members on this forum and as many are aware has strived with dedication to succeed in this hobby.

Gino has left us with a memory that will not be forgotten and will be greatly missed.

The family during this tough time would appreciate some time alone.


God Bless,

Ralph Ciardullo

Can't believe the news, my deepest condolences to your family. May he rest in peace.


I have known him ever since I came into the pleco hobby. He is one of those great people who really loved the hobby and loved helping others in the hobby. It seems like just yesterday we were chatting about plecos during the auctions.


We have lost a great pleco head and he will truly be missed.

I know I'm late to say my condolences but I haven't been around

Gino was one of my favourite people I had the pleasure of meeting.
He used to have me over to his house and his mothers house.
I had the pleasure of meeting his brothers his wife and of course you Ralph as well.

I know he's up in heaven because that's were a man like him belongs once he leave this world

My friend
