Well, good luck to you. I'm bested for now. [grumble, grumble]

The killies listed here are unusually suited to aquarium life, for they can
take warmer water, year around, than many midwestern and NE fish. 

What would be best for the Bay Area Killifish Assn. would actually be a box
for the sale tables at our big annual bash the end of April. The "West Coast
Weekend" 10th Annual Killifish Show and Convention will be featuring a joint
show with the livebearers, next spring (4th weekend in April). All of these
fish, but the catfish, are highly suited to that crowd.

Folks come from all over the US, Europe and Japan for this one. The foreign
visitors are particularly delighted to take home US natives. If Chris or
James or whoever would contact me off line, maybe we can set up an NFC box
to feature some of these same fish in April. IMHO, its one of the very best
ways to introduce fish folk to some of our more beautiful native fish.

Others who wish to enter fish in that show should contact me, in March, if
they aren't active in AKA or on the killy lists to get the "send to:"
address and timing.
