you want to run the risk of killing off a mroe delicate fish, simply
because it is 'local'? Just some comments to consider...


Perhaps a species specific description of the care and feeding, augmented with

difficulty of procurring proper diet, tank size requirements etal would be the
farthest reaching contribution we could make towards making classroom projects
