Much of the information available here is derived from my opinionsand based on over two decadesof raising tropical fish, maintaining my own tanks, helping friends toget their own aquaria started, extensive reading of literatureavailable regarding the aquarium hobby and industry, and, morerecently, running the fish department at Bozeman Pet Center. I havealso incorporated information based on feedback I have gotten fromothers who may have more experience with specific equipment andinformation based on some of the most frequently asked I get. I have also included someinformation on why people often get from varioussources on fish care.
Information on the movement of individual fish relative to landscape features, in both tropical and temperate seas, is critical for the design of successful MRs.

"The reason for this is the presence of many eyes searching for the food. Fish in shoals "share" information by monitoring each other’s behaviour closely. Feeding behaviour in one fish quickly stimulates food-searching behaviour in others. Additional Information. Freshwater Fishes of Texas by Earl Chilton II, Ph.D. provides illustrated accounts of 46 species. A companion poster is also available.

Welcome to the world of fishes!
FishBase is a global biodiversity information system on finfishes. Its initial goal to provide key facts on population dynamics for 200 major commercial species has now grown to having a wide range of information on all species currently known in the world: taxonomy, biology, trophic ecology, life history, and uses, as well as historical data reaching back to 250 years. Fish Information and Services (FIS) claims to be the world's largest online provider of information for the . It is a privately held company founded in Tokyo in 1995 by Yasuo Kunimitsu and Andre Daniel Loubet-Jambert, providing a broad range of information on , , and . According to the publisher, the site - which is available in three languages: , and - receives approximately 330,000 pageviews per month. Additionally, it operates as an online-auction. The breadth and depth of information in the database, combined with the analytical and graphical tools available in the web, cater to different needs of diverse groups of stakeholders (scientists, researchers, policy makers, fisheries managers, donors, conservationists, teachers and students). Its various applications aim for sustainable fisheries management, biodiversity conservation and environmental protection. FishBase is also available on DVD, a static version in a web-based interface, with data as of early 2013 (1st quarter), full information on 32,500 species. It comes together with the FishBase 2000 book and can be ordered for 100 US$ including air-mail. With the help of >2,000 collaborators we update the database daily (internally), and bimonthly on the website. FishBase provides the database and web interface for free for 25 years thanks to a full-time dedicated team. However, we lack recurrent funding to maintain the information system up to date both in content and technological innovation. We gratefully acknowledge financial contribution to continue the service of this open resource. Led by 2004 National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dr. Zeb Hogan, the project will span six continents and encompass expeditions to study 14 of Earth's most diverse freshwater ecosystems—ecological treasures—including World Heritage sites, Ramsar Wetlands of International Importance, and United Nations Environment Program Biodiversity Hotspots. Along the way, Hogan and his team of investigators will gather information about the life history, population status, geographic range, and threats associated with each focal species, and then synthesize this information into IUCN Red List Assessments and for a meta-analysis of population and distribution trends over time. Hogan will be working with a network of more than a hundred scientists and fishermen in 17 countries, as well as local people, to examine the causes and potential solutions to the global loss of freshwater biodiversity. Researchers also hope to identify the planet's largest freshwater fish.
