Re: FWD msg on BB Sunfish from tayers at bridge_com

Peter Rollo has an article on the NFC website 
(http://nativefish.interspeed.net/) on the blackbanded sunfish, which 
contains a wealth of information on this species. He would probably be 
your best bet for getting a breeding pair.  Robert Rice, President of 
the NFC, also has juvenile BB sunfish for sale.  He can be reached at 
robertrice at juno_com.He has a listing of available species on the NFC 
Bulletin Board at the NFC website. BTW, if you are interested in native 
killifish, Robert Rice is a good source - his Fundulus chrysotus are 
absolutely outstanding !!!
