Two Things come to mind one about Old dogs and the other about a Rose's
I quess that is what happens when we stay to much with one genus and dont
try and learn about the others or dont spend much time in that part of the
fish room. I quess what threw me is that I found Leptolucania abrv. as
Lepto. and failed to read that Leptolebias is a sub genus of Cynopoecilus.
Cynop.minimus is listed as a valid speices in Killie Data. I dont have
Costa's book but I quess I will get it if I want to raise SA.
Remind me about the beer in Chicago Harry.
