Hi Histonetters,
A University student that is currently working in our Fish & Wildlife Lab is doing
some work with embedding Fat Head Minnow otoliths on a slide. They are trying to get a layer on top of the original embedded layer to bond together. The otoliths first have to be "sanded" in the original layer before they try to add the top layer. 
Any info from someone using this technique would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
