    Hi Guys and Gals we need YOUR help....

    We are trying to build up a fish database for the purpose of easy identification, so what we would like your help with is all the pictures of fish you ever posted - all of you.

    We'd like you to have a really good look through all your fish pictures and select only the clear images where positive ID is possible, then post them up in this thread with the name added, we will then credit you with the picture when the database is built. :bigsmile:

    Please remember that we cannot use pictures without the owners permission so please be careful where you obtain them it is only possible with your help that we can build this database, but remember that it will be useful for many new members as they join.

    Sorry delilah. The proxy server here at work seems to block parts of the admin section. I haven't had electricity at home since tuesday but will enable you to edit posts in here asap.

    Um... I have a lot of pictures but several of them are very large and may make the thread a bit of a loading problem... let me know if you want them. Until then, here are some of the others. Don't still have all these fish but can still be used for ID.
