Request for Ads: NFC Fishkeeper's Exchange

As Robert Rice has announced, we are trying to put together a number of 
NFC programs and activities, which will include the new NFC Fishkeeper's 
Exchange.  Simply put, this will be an online listing of "bulletin 
board" ads, which can be buy/sell/trade ads, announcements or items of 
interest.  Buy, sell or trade anything fish related, such as fish, 
equipment, supplies, books, etc. We want to make this a fun way of 
interacting with other native fish enthusiasts.  There is SOMEONE out 
there that would just love to have those common-as-dirt shiners that you 
throw back everytime you go collecting, so why not trade them with 
someone that is overrun with a species you are just dying to get hold 
of?  Think of the possibilities!  I have some example ads below:

Looking for non-endangered sand darters for breeding project seeking to 
establish protocols for sand darter breeding.  Successful methods will 
be used in an attempt to breed Eastern Sand Darters, which are either 
threatened or endangered over much of their range.  If you have access 
to one or more species of sand darters, please give me a call or send me 
an email if you wish to help in this important project.

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!
