Hi all. I just got my American Currents in the mailbox. It's hard to come up with enough superlatives to accurately describe it. Tremendous--stupendous--outstanding--magnificent--superb!

What a collection of terrific articles.

Tony Terceira's account of collecting and breeding Floridichthys carpio

The Vareigate Darter in the Muskingum River

Nick Zarlinga's interaction with the media in identifying the Lake Erie Shark

Ron Oldfield's report on the fish he observed while diving around shipwrecks in Lake Huron

Chris Barnhart's "The Perfect Marine Snail for your Freshwater Aquarium."

And my personal favorite, Todd Crail's detailed, informative, and knowledgeable piece, "System Design for the Ultimate Native Fish Aquarium."

And it's got pictures! In color yet! (Like Tony Terceira's picture of a pair of Floridichthys carpio on the cover.)

Todd avails us of his specialized knowledge in adapting the marine fishkeeping technique of deep sandbeds to a freshwater native fish system.

NANFA members, I know you'll be extremely happy when you find this issue in your mailbox. Non members, you're out of luck.
