Foreword to "The Best of the Rainbowfish Study Group of North America" 1992
It was in the summer of '87 when I was at a fish show lamenting the fact that there wasn't a group dedicated to rainbowfish in North America. Well Jim Bellina told me to quit my grousing and start one! Some sort of wager was made and soon in September of that year the first few pages of our newsletter was sent out to a few hobbyists interested in "bows". The question was: Would you like to join a rainbowfish club and would you be willing to send in articles? We now enjoy a small but comfortable club of about 200 members. The second part of the answer lies beyond this page in the works presented by our members and some selected works by other rainbowfish clubs from around the world.
