Re: C. veronicae

Speaking of unusual fish, I have a small colony of Ataenobius toweri, 
also known as the Blue-Tailed Goodeid, which I understand is also 
extinct in the wild.  Also have a breeding pair of Red-Tailed Goodeids 
(Xenotoca eiseni) and a small colony of Bass Goodeids (Ilyodon 
furcidens).  Most, if not all, goodeids are living on borrowed time due 
to water use practices and development in Mexico.  We should really 
consider trying to work something out with the American Livebearer 
Association to help keep stocks of goodeid species alive and with the 
AKA for pupfish and killifish.  Would also be great PR for the NFC and 
maybe get some additional memberships.
