I figured to take the shortest route here, mainly for space and time
considerations. Right now I've got the Borelliis, Orange Flash, Double Reds,
Blue Aggies, Double Red Aggies, Trifasciata and Nijsseni all working - and
those are just the Apistos. I'm kinda out of room at the present, but I just
might create some in this case. The idea of a white OF is becoming more
appealing as I think about it.

But there's also the time factor here. My franchise is about to hand me
another restaurant, and the fish I have going right now are more or less
"self-replicating" without requiring a lot of the attention I can hardly
spare right now. But that might not be the case should I have to start
toward a more specific goal.

Thanks for the "heads up", Mike. I would definitely be interested in
anything else you might be able to find out. You can take it to private mail
if that's more appropriate...


P.S. -

It's the _white_ I'm interested in - not the albino...
