Hello all,

When Jay DeLong first started the website, I sent the list of
fishes that had been successfully spawned in aquaria by our members. I also
asked that the members who claimed to spawn a certain species also send
along a written acount of the spawning.

In some cases, I did receive this, but in most not.

I have a handwritten file of spawning accounts, but there were more
un-documented reports of spawnings than were written up for American
Currents. I had always asked for personal accounts of water parameters,
temperatures, feeding regimens, etc. to accompany the spawning reports.

Jay DeLong issued a form that asked many pertinant questions, and I don't
beleive that anyone filled them out and sent them in to document the
spawnings of a species.

This is very important information, ie: just because a certain species
spawned in your tank and had a million babies..........what did you do to
acheive this result and also enter all revelant facts!

I hope that we can get together and form a more scientific basis to our
documentation of native fish spawnings.......this is very important to our
members and our native fishes!
