I am a past member of NANFA. I had to suspend my membership due to 
finances(a bloody divorce and three youngsters I want to do right by). A 
year ago I bought some Green Goodieds (Xenoophorus captivus), and have 
had some sucess in breeding them. These fish are supposedly extinct in 
the wild, and species maintanence is very important. I would like to see 
if you would allow me to run an ad so we can spread this species about 
the country, minimizing the chance of its disappearance. The fish was 
collected in Mexico by Professor Miller of the University of Michigan 
(yes that Dr. Miller) in the 1960's. It is found in the Detroit area due 
to the efforts of Jim Langhammer and the Belle Isle Aquarium.  While it 
isn't rampant in the Detroit area, it pops up now and then at a club 
auction. I would be glad to trade for other fish or to donate to any 
scientific or educational institution for shipping expenses. (03/98)

 NOTE: members who fail to reciprocate in trading will have their ads
 removed from the Trading Post and may be subject to other sanctions.
