Finding and hatching eggs. Breeding that 2nd or 3rd generation of difficult
fish. Driving married desert conservation-work-party guys nuts by dragging
along single female(s) to every one.

I give up. Common names are just too ambiguous and localized. None of the
above live west of the Rockies, AFAIK. ;-)

Any interest in *Lucania parva*? I am tempted to go collect a few and offer
as prizes for my own survey if they are wanted anywhere. The late Dale Weber
claimed several north bay ponds have quite different color varieties. I'd
like to explore that as I can find time. They are in very salty water, now,
but can be aclimated to pure fresh water if folks aren't into keeping
brackish tanks. LMK.
