Thanks, Charlie.

I will definitely let you know when I'm heading back down. I do fairly
well collecting alone (for a novice), but I have learned that group efforts
are much more rewarding. I love keeping a wide variety of natives at home,
but my poor ID skills often compel me to reject fish that I'm not sure
about for fear of taking something that is endangered. I look forward to
working with you and your group.
