John H. Rosenberger, who was born on October 27, 1922 in
Colorado Springs, Colorado, died on July 15, 2005 in San
Tom reminisces about experiences with John and about visits
to his home to see his fish. Many of those fish were in
plywood boxes in John's backyard, which was very surprising at the
time. John was always very friendly and very modest about his skill.
John loved killiefish including Cynolebias nigripinnis,
Aphyosemion species, Roloffia species, and many others.
