Re: NFC: native fish library

<color><param>0100,0100,0100</param>Lee, et al, <italic>Atlas of North American Freshwater Fishes </italic>(Distribution

Adey and Loveland, <italic>Dynamic Aquaria</italic> (note:  This is NOT about

Stoskopf, <italic>Fish Medicine</italic>  (a good reference covering marine, 
freshwater ornamental, and food and game fishes)
