If you did cichlids you'd need a year! There are different continents, different lakes and thousands upon thousands of different fish. But the website is a great idea! And once again I saw: TURTLES ARE AQUATIC ANIMALS THAT NEED HELP TOO!!! But I think this could go far

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Why can't we just do African Cichlids? It would be a lot easier, or even Oscars. We could create the website from weebley. Or weebly. Lol

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Agreed 100%!!

There are different lakes in Africa. You cannot mix them. And oscars are South American. Plus the dwarves from South America which are WAY different then the other ones. Then there are central American ones as well. Loads of cichlids. I'm just saying if you're going to do a month then a bit of information would be needed and there would need to be a specific topic with the fish, not just cichlids.

I know that. We just need to find a specific Cichlid and just put down some facts like the minimum tank size. Even if the Cichlids in the store are in those tanks, those are just temporary. I'm saying Oscars are Cichlids, too and we could have that instead of other Cichlids if necessary for that month.

Just so I'm getting this correctly: just a general month over ALL cichlids that they sell in pet stores? The mix African tanks has sooo many different fish and hybrids. And all the tanks sizes are different. I would put a discus in the same tank as a Lamprologus ocellatus.

Also: this shouldn't be called aquatic attention if we aren't going to include aquatic frogs, crabs and turtles. Just my opinion;)

Yes, or if we can't manage one specific Cichlid out of all.

Um, I really think that we should do South American and African seperate. It's much easier to do it that way. I mean there could be smaller topics underneath each month but the continent seperation would be good. The water quality are completely different and this really would be the best way to inform rather then so the opposite of what our intentions are.

Also, you said angelfish and cichlids up there... Angelfish are cichlids...

Oh, whoops... I agree with you on that. Just in case of confusion. So... What do we do next?

Add turtles, frogs and crabs/inverts to the list of Aquatic animals that we should be attentive of. I'm being stubborn on this, but they need help too
