In Memorium - Silversides

I have sad news to report  :(

Todd Crail from Toledo, his wife and brother-in-law (some of you may know
Todd from the NANFA list, nanfa at aquaria_net) made a detour from their trip
to the Columbus Zoo Saturday to stop by my place to meet personally and
talk fish.  This is not the sad news!!!  Anyway, as we were checking out my
tanks, I went to show Todd my brook silversides only to find it was no
where to be seen.  After searching the tank frantically, I finally found
him head down in the corner, looking a little stiff.

Here's the obit:

Brook Silversides, collected 10-19-98, Scioto River at Circleville, Ohio
Died 7-11-98, R.I.P.

So here's the current record:  Labidesthes sicculus, 266 days in captivity.

So who's going to beat it???

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
