A 30th Anniversary edition of American Currents is at the printer and is
scheduled to mail to all NANFA members shortly after Thanksgiving.

Highlights of this expanded, 44-page, issue include:

* anniversary articles and reminiscences from three founding NANFA members:
John R. Quinn, Dick Stober, and the founder himself, Mr. John Bondhus

* a CFI husbandry report on Cahaba shiner and goldline darter

* Bob Muller on spawning the flagfin shiner

* news and photos of three newly described species of pupfish

* sculpin diversity of the northeastern U.S.

* Bob Bock on Ameca splendens

* and a new Q&A column from D. Martin Moore called "Three Questions, Moore

My continued thanks to all the contributors who fill each issue of American
Currents with so much quality material.

If you're not a NANFA member, you can be sure to receive this issue as long
as you join now. Here's the application:

Work has already begun on the Winter issue. In fact, I just typeset a
fascinating article on the blind cave catfishes of Texas!
