I was flipping through the new issue of Buntbarsche Bulletin when a photo on
page 9 caught my eye. Gee, that looks like Norm Edelen, I thought. Later, when I
read the article, I learned that sure enough it was -- Norm had traveled to
southern Mexico to collect cichlids and other fishes.

Two questions, Norm:

1) What permits are required to collect Mexican fishes?

2) The article mentions that a small piece of Polyfilter was added to each
breathable bag. Was this biologically active Polyfilter?
