It would be nice if it was possible to obtain any species of pygmy
(Elassoma), mudminnows (Umbra), or the pirate perch (Aphredoderus
My current research involves all of these taxa.  I am also interested in
of the following species:
Any Noturus (madtoms); I'm working on side projects with their spawning 
behavior- I can collect N. miurus, N. flavus, N. gyrinus, N. exilis, N. 
nocturnus so I don't need those.
Pteronotropis hubbsi (bluehead shiner)
Pteronotropis welaka (bluenose shiner)
Notropis chrosomus (rainbow shiner)
Lucania goodei (bluefin killifish)
Leptolucania ommata (pygmy killifish)
any Fundulus sp. except F. notatus and F. olivaceous
any Cyprinodon sp.
Jordanella floridae (flagfish)
Heterandria formosa (least killifish)
any cave-dwelling fish (although I suspect they are well protected so
may not be feasible; perhaps the swampfish Chologaster cornuta?)
Enneacanthus gloriosus (bluespotted sunfish)
Enneacanthus chaetodon (blackbanded sunfish)
any Etheostoma sp. except E. caeruleum, E. spectabile, E. blennoides, E. 
nigrum, E. zonale, E. flabellare (I can collect these); also I am very 
interested in any type of sand darter.

As you can see, I am interested in a broad range of taxa.  I understand
many of these will be unavailable.  I do have exceptional facilities and 
resources at my disposal so accommidation is not a problem for several 
species of fishes.  Of course, I will submit regular updates to you on
fish you send me.  Just let me know how and when you want me to do so.  I

look forward to hearing from you.
