Its very difficult .....You must simply ask the person heading up the
breeders club to join it. A brief history of what youve bred and what
you'd like to breed would be helpfull......SInce we are so new at this i
am the breeders club starting point...I will be HAPPY to give up this
position for qualified person. It is gonna be a very neat way for
aquarist to do what they like to do, help the native fish, help the NFC,
and build up some much needed life histories..
the life histories will be placed on the website organized by genus and
BTW the website will soon be moving to its permanant location , a
location with unlimited space so we are gonna put all of Garolds Sneegas
photos up in a gallery. Garold asked us if he could have more room to
display his work and solicite commercial accounts and we were happy to
accomidate him...So over the next month or 2 you will see some dramatic
improvements to the website it will be the largest native fish website on
the web with massive links, articles, and a several hundred photo gallery
...so if you have some cool native fish, conservation or aquarium links
drop em here to the list....
we also will be putting up a friends of the NFC area where bussiness that
support the NFC can get a free add as our way of thanking them...We hope
that NFC members would support those bussiness.. We have also landed a
printer for our publications and with our not for profit status they were
willing to give us printing ,collating and mailing at 1/5 of what it
would normally cost..So we can really save our money for the important
stuff the fishes !!!
.enough bussiness for this week back to fish talk.....:)
