NANFA-- Tank for Johnson County Library

Well, good news, bad news.

Bad news: They ended up having to expell some
students so they doon't need the parapro to watch them
anymore. So, no job. Still a sub.

Good news: Last month I asked the librarian if she
was open to the idea of having a native tank. She
asked the board, and they gave an enthusiatic yes.

So, Now what?

Is there a process by which to get an official
endorsement from NANFA, before I go soliciting tank
companies with Library letterhead?

The old wooden cabinate (quite solid) that they
suggest that I put it on is just over 2 ft X 3 ft, and
thus will easily hold a 29 or 47 gal. I have somthing
like these in mind:

The fish would have to be maintained with dry goods
for onsite storage reasons, but they would get
occational "treats" from me brought from home. I live
2 blocks away (small town blocks). I will be
responsible for upkeep, but the librarian has kept
fish in the past and can be depended upon for daily
checks and feeding.

Do I seem to be going the right direction with this?
