It is the _Killifish Master Index_ published under the sponsorship of the
AKA. The one out now is pretty old, and a new issue is, according to Lee
Harper, our fearless leader, due out RSN ("Real Soon Now," kinda like the
latest Microslush operating system). :-)
Our own Ken Lazara assembles and edits it, and when you see the new one, you
will realize what a monstrous undertaking that was! IMO, Ken deserves that
big award we have been talking about, for the largest single-handed
contribution to the hobby in recent years.
Temporarily, the Arizona club has put up a current species list, as will
appear in the new KMI at http://ark.killi.net/AList.htm. Another really
useful guide that I picked up at Convention, and is probably available from
AKA, is the Huber _Killi-data 2000_. It's worth way more than what I paid,
I'm taking the liberty of doing something I *never* do, normally. I'm
cross-posting this to the killitalk list, both as a highly-AKA-related
posting, and because it's information many would not receive, otherwise. [My
apology, in advance, to those getting it twice.]
