    If I am keen on a new fish that I have no experience with, it would be lakka if I can look it up on a database, even ask the members that have had experience with it.

    Lets get a database going of all fish that members have their own experience with, eg. compatability with other fish, tank size requirements, feeding etc.
    We keep it to the same format, and then collate all the info and maybe make the mod squad can make this a sticky.



    I will start off with an example, and the abbreviations. Please try and stick to the same format and abbreviations, as it will make the copying easy. Even if someone has posted about the same fish, if there is any small differances, list yours and we can combine them.


    Fish: Yellow tail damsel (no latin names, or lantin names in brackets after)
    Food needs: all- frozen (eg- tangs list nori etc)
    fish size:25mm-35mm
    Tank Size:S (list S-small, M- medium, L- large)
    Reef safe: G (G-green safe, O-orange 50/50, R-Red no)
    RRP: R90-R150 (price from LFS-don't want members getting ripped off)
    Hardiness: 1 (1=begginer, 2= needs more care 3= only for experienced like moorish idols)
    Looks: Electric blue with yellow tail
    Pros: cheap, hardy, small, easy to feed.
    Cons:can be dominant over a small area or towards other fish, especially other damsels
    Tips/notes: should dominance occur, move rocks around a bit.

    Longer than that I think, give him a good kick up his rear end next time you see him.

    Yip :p

    You should see my browser, it's got like a million documentation tabs open and masa/tasa at the very end...

    It was built on one framework and now I'm converting it to another framework. The fish part is the easy part.

    I have been working on this and I have kind of got something like this up and running, but it is a huge work in progress and still needs LOTS of work. Marine Aquariums SA ID database

    I am starting off with listing as many fish as possible with their common names and scientific names, then I will start working on other information such as magman has listed.
