The link to the old breeders list disappeared when we moved the web page
from a server where I used to work to a server at Arizona St Univ where
Peter works. But it really wasn't much-- just a list of about 60 species
that people had bred-- no names, details, etc. The list is at

When you develop the program, just tell me how you want to use the web page.
I think it would be best if one of you on the team can design the breeders
list web page, and I'll just upload it (and updates) to the NANFA server and
not be further involved. The success of this will be up to you.

I wouldn't say that providing fish to others is at all bad. Perhaps leave
it up to the breeders-- if they want to get their fish into the hobby, then
they should do so, but don't make it a requirement. Like Doug said and
others seem to agree, the greatest value of this program would be the
details of their rearing and breeding-- foods, behavior, aquarium
conditions, water chemistry, spawning stimuli, spawning behavior and care of
the young-- don't you all think?

Anyway, I'll help if I can. The same goes for other aspects of the NANFA
web page. If you want to help, or add something new, or whatever else, just
say so.
