Actually, NANF is only a discussion list based out of the JAWS website, 
which is now the NFC main discussion list. NANFA and NFC are 
organizations. NANFA also has a discussion list (nanfa at aquaria_net), 
which adds to the potential confusion by new users or members of the 
lists and/or organizations, due to the similarity of the group name and 
the list name.

There is, indeed, a lot of cross-posting of info relevant to multiple 
groups, which is, I think, a good thing. For instance, info on how to 
spawn weed shiners may be of interest to NFC members, NANFA members, 
etc. In a similar light, information on collecting Amazon mollies might 
be of interest to several groups in addition to NANFA and NFC.

Perhaps someone could come up with a graphic on the NFC website, in the 
FAQ area, that shows the relationships between groups, discussion lists, 
chat rooms, etc., which would hopefully reduce confusion levels for new

One of the earliest Christian symbols was the fish
(Greek: icthys, which was an abbreviation for the Greek
words in the phrase: Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior).
Thus, disciples could identify each other by their use
of the fish symbol, which continues to be used today.
Jonah was swallowed by a huge fish and remained
within it for three days and three nights. Afterwards,
he was "vomited" (literal translation) onto the beach
to go and minister to the people of Ninevah (Jonah 2:1-11).
While we often find references in aquarium books
concerning the first instances of fishkeeping
by humans, this appears to be the first instance
of humankeeping by a fish!
