    Hi everyone

    We are happy to announce that at long last our ID database has sufficient information on it for us to open it to the public.

    A HUGE amount of thanks must go to @Mc who has literally spent hours and hours populating it with photo's and information, I can not even begin to imagine how much work he has put into it, so thank you Mc. :thumbup: Also a big thank you to Rory for doing all the coding and programming. :thumbup:

    I would also like to extend my thanks to all of the members that helped build the database by allowing us to use your photo's, so a big thank you as well to everyone that contributed their photo's, or who will be contributing in the future, thank you all very much. :thumbup1:

    At the moment, only the Fish section is operational, with many more categories coming soon.

    Check it out here by clicking on the Fish Category - Marine Aquariums South Africa ID Database Index

    One way is to send me pictures and I will put them up with info.
    You can also send info if you have any.
    I will start a new thread now where you can post it.

    In the lionfish section under P. mombasae, only my pic is the correct species. Second two pics are P. antennata.

    In the tilefish section, the photo of the fish in P. starcki page is another P. purpureus. P. starcki only has blue right on the head and the rest is yellowish.

    Yeah you right I see that will fix it now.
    Some of those lionfish are hard to identify.
