Thanks for forwarding the article on sunfish!  I believe I may have read
it before (is it perhaps posted on the NANFA site, or elsewhere on the
'web?)  I wrote an article on spawning the green sunfish which was
published in FAMA in 1980, and so I was intrigued by the portion of your
article which reads,

"The rest of us were to busy keeping
Cichlids, Discus and Tetras to consider the lively and
colorful sunfishes all to seriously. Slowly almost
imperceptibly things began to change. Aquarist like myself
stumbled upon local species that were stunning and a
pleasure to keep. Aquarium magazines began to pick up the
ball giving temperate species much needed exposure."

I wonder if my article was one of those!  

I notice that you write from Navarre, Florida. Can you recommend any
collecting sites in the south Florida area?  Our family vacation will be
in a couple of weeks, and we're driving through Orlando and down to the
Everglades and Big Cypress.  I'm interested in collecting dwarf sunfish,
but I'd also be interested in places where I can observe/collect
introduced cichlids. In addition to my natives, I'm keeping a variety of
cichlids (see http://www.lava.net/~cjones/1000g.html).  Oh well, that's
what can happen after twenty years in the aquarium hobby!
