    GUYS i suggest we choose a name that'll get more new reefers into the hobby.this should be one of the core functions of the mag IMHO.something like aquatic fanatics makes us(well the hobby) seem nerdy and out of the grasp of normal people?

    think about it guys......:whistling:

    Cool Marco! Thanks.... I want a name that is "Catchy" and easily remembered. A name that can EASILY become a household name.
    Falcon - I get your drift. BUT, do you think there's a better name?

    At this stage, I think that "Aquatic Fanatic" is the best name, as it can encompass: marine aquariums, fresh water aquariums, SCUBA diving (if need be), free diving.... and anything else that has to do with water and the water realm...

    That I LIKE!

    i voted number 1, but i'm beginning to agree with falcon.
    If i were interested in model planes, "model plane fanatics" would sound too much for me
    However, number 1 IS catchy and easy to remember

    Thanks Irshaad - I want a name that everyone can easily associate marine and fresh water fish keepers by. What other name describes us better than "Aquatic Fanatics"?

    Many thanks man...

    OK - so far - it seems that "Aquatic Fanatic" it's going to be!

    Thanks for everyone who have voted! I really appreciate it!

    I will keep the poll open for another short while though.... ;)

    I think Aquarium Chronicles is the best name as it is easy to remember, non reefer and people starting will know it better. Its like Ipod every one one can remember that, Aquatic Fanatic does not sound like a big name, but rather a small hobby mag. I know this is what it is but you do not want people to think that, you want to think its big and important. Its like Reefkeeping, its simple and to the point. I personaly do think aquatic fanatic will go far.
