RE: In Memorium - Silversides

I think your problem, according to the obit was that you collected a
fish that had died approximately 3 months before you collected it.

	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

	So who's going to beat it???

	Columbus Ohio USA          <))><

	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.
