Re: [Killietalk] N. kafuensis Kayuni
I have seen far more of Karl's fish like hundreds of pairs in the hobby for
the past 20 or so years than I have seen of the other guy 's. I think I have
only see 2 pairs of Brian's fish for auction around here. I wish some one
would write a grant for Karl to go to Africa and collect, I feel we would
see far more of the fish in the hobby from his trips than the other guy.
