The AKA online gallery will be extended when people offer high
quality pictures of the fish. I am hopeful that as the slide sales
program is revived (and it will be) we will be able to use most of
those issues, linking them to the store so that people can buy the
actual slides. You will realize that the resolution of online images
is relatively low and does not compare to an actual slide.
