 Dear  fellow  IAHians.....
 
      I  think  there  is  a  need  for  popular  as  well  as  native  fish  profile  section  on  IAH  website.  We  have  already  too  many  good  pictures  that  we  can  link  the  the  gallery  of  species  profile  species  wise.  And  along  with  standard  profile  we  can  share  the  view  of  the  owners  also  about  their  behavior,  tips  and  tricks,  etc.
 
 Regards

 We  do  have  the  appropriate  module  in  place,  unfortunately  there  are  no  submissions  from  the  members  even  after  5  long  years.
 
 This  topic  keeps  coming  up  every  once  in  a  while  but  contributions  never  turn  up.

 Dear  Madan.....
 
      I  can  contribute  to  some  pages  when  times  permit  me  atleast  3-4  species  a  day  but  i  still  need  experts  like  you  to  guide  and  check  up  the  contents....
 
      I'm  also  developing  similar  website  for  indian  birds  where  user  can  contribute  the  images  and  also  profiles....
 
 Regards

 Please  get  in  touch  with  the  experts  here  beta,  madhu_ulysses,  rahul  there  are  a  number  of  them  specialising  in  different  fish,  they  will  do  a  once  over  of  the  profile  and  help  out  with  changes  if  needed.
 
 Then  send  the  final  draft  with  pictures  to  beta  or  ravi,  you  could  send  it  to  me  also  but  I  am  leaving  this  week  and  I  will  be  back  only  in  December.
 
 Once  the  final  profile  is  ready  it  is  a  matter  of  minutes  to  upload  it  to  the  site.
 
 I  guess  many  who  want  to  contribute  have  the  same  problem  as  you,  networking  should  help  solve  the  issue.
 
 Once  a  beginning  is  made,  more  people  should  follow  with  contributions,  but  that  does  not  necessarily  happen  as  a  rule  on  IAH.  See  the  Book  reviews,  I  put  in  reviews  of  over  20  books  and  then  the  contribution  has  been  few  and  far.  It  will  need  one  persons  concentrated  effort  to  slowly  build  up  the  profiles,  thanks  for  volunteering,  help  will  be  at  hand  on  IAH  surely.
 
 The  same  module  can  be  renamed  and  duplicated  for  Fish  and  Aquatic  Plant  Profiles.
 
 Looking  forward  to  your  profiles.  Thumb Up

 Dear  Madan
 Good  suggestions  from  Arpit.Though  I’m  not  an  expert  but  want  to  contribute  on  African  cichlids  which  I’m  keeping  for  the  last  9  years.

Happy   voyage  Sir.  Come  back  in  winter,  we  always  enjoy  your  stay  here.
 Regards

 Cant  we  have  a  Profile  Section  on  the  Forums?
 
 This  makes  updation  and  submission  easy...The  admins  and  other  can  always  edit  and  update  from  other  members  on  the  same  profile  can  be  done  by  either  the  original  poster  or  the  Mods?

 Not  in  the  forums,  come  on!
 
 Take  that  extra  effort  and  make  a  proper  submission.  Why  leave  everything  to  mods  and  admins?
 
 The  moment  anything  is  in  the  forums  quality  goes  for  a  six.

 Hi
 I  would  be  willing  to  spend  time  for  this  project  too.  But  as  someone  who  came  into  the  hobby  very  very  recently  whatever  I  write  {for  that  matter  whatever  a  new  hobbyist  writes}  would  be  heavily  dependent  on  what  I  have  read  up  on  the  topic.
 
 That  would  translate  to  quite  a  lot  of  ideas  and  concepts  that  are  written  down  without  enough  experience  to  support  it.  {And  unless  there  is  a  fair  bit  of  self  regulation  by  the  author  there  might  even  be  outright  plagiarism}.
 
 And  pictures  would  have  to  be  taken  by  the  author  and  not  taken  off  the  net,  which  is  again  going  to  be  difficult  for  a  beginner  hobbyist  role  playing  as  a  technical  author.
 
 Wouldn't  all  this  degrade  the  final  quality  of  the  materials?  I  guess  what  I  am  saying  is  that  the  senior  hobbyists  would  probably  end  up  shouldering  much  of  the  work  in  the  end.

 I  am  game  for  this  though  would  request  moderators  to  provide  a  basic  structure  for  submissions.  For  e.g.
 
 Scientific  name:
 Common  name:
 Family:
 Water  requirements  (pH  &  DH):
 Temperature:
 Lighting:
 Size:
 Gender  differences:
 Compatibility:
 Feeding  requirements:
 Habitat  (Biotope):
 
 This  will  also  reduce  work  for  the  mods  and  have  consistency  in  reading  for  all...  What  say?

 Hi
 That  would  be  a  very  objective  way  of  putting  things.  Personally  it  reminds  me  too  much  of  fishbase,  very  matter  of  fact  and  dry.
 
 Another  way  of  doing  it  is  the  way  that  http://aqualandpetsplus.com/  lists  them,  very  verbose  and  fun  to  read.  But  when  you  read  it  you  can  see  that  there  is  a  lot  of  personal  opinions  mixed  in  with  the  science  and  facts.
 
 The  Admin/moderators  can  decide  how  they  want  it  structured  and  probably  put  up  a  short  guideline.  And  It  would  be  best  if  the  author  volunteers  info  on  his  experience  in  the  hobby  so  that  the  senior  members  can  scrutinize  articles  by  the  "newborn  aquarist  come  authors"  more  closely  than  the  senior  members  who  write.
 
 I  still  feel  that  seniors  writing  would  be  the  best  thing.  But  i  understand  the  fact  that  they  are  already  contributing  so  much  that  asking  them  to  put  in  more  effort  would  be  unfair

 Hi  Unni,
 U  r  right  in  proposing  experiences  to  be  shared.  I  guess  it  could  be  a  combination  of  both...  Objective  and  Experience.  The  objective  part  is  also  essential  since  it  brings  everyone  onto  the  same  page.  Moreover,  this  is  important  (especially)  for  native  fish  since  most  of  them  may  not  be  covered  in  other  sites  for  others  to  go  and  refer...

 I  feel  the  venture  if  could  be  successfully  undertaken,  would  be  a  feather  in  the  Cap  of  IAH.  Many  of  the  web  sites  that  i  have  checked  give  very  bookish  details  and  does  not  share  much  of  any  practical  information  and  experiances  of  the  people.  I  would  therefore  suggest  that  the  "IAH  Encyclopedia  on  fishes"  should  have  a  fact  sheet  with  pictures  and  also  pages  attached  to  each  sub-species  where  users  can  share  their  experiances  and  post  their  queries  regarding  that  specific  sub  species.  
 
 I  am  sure  that  over  a  period  of  time  this  can  be  edited  and  developed  into  something  like  winkepedia.
