The "Aquarium Conservation Program"

Post by Cichlidenwelt » Thu Jan 31, 2008 12:35 pm

The ACP starts

All good things are three, says an old word. So now for the ACP. About two years ago the idea was born and the first presentation of the ACP occured in the web. An invitation to aquarists was posted, first discussion of a handful of enthusiasts started. on the importance of such a program, After a while it clearly came out hat there was no doubt of the participants but it was not possible to attract new participants, to get additional ideas and impulses. A switch to another website took place (austria-aqua.net), where a fish-database was presented and in use for the first time. This brought a little growth in participants, of course under great influence of the fact hat a breeding and conservation program for rheophilc cichlids was started under support of cichlidenwelt.de.

But now, it´s already a third start in the way that was the big wish from the beginning on - to have a website of it´s own. So - this is not a last painful try to get more acceptance, this now is a result of the tries, ideas, toughts and suggestions of the former years. The ACP has gone to be adult in cause of consequent evolution - in formal aspects as well as in contents. This surely is not too early, hopefully not too late. All which are knowing the ACP yet are having greatest commitment that a program like this is more than necessary, regarding the current situation in the hobby.

Therefore an invitation to all the ones which had no contact to the ACP until now: Look in for what we are doing this, look in to see our intentions. An join. Work with. We have an important target. It is our hobby.

Hi
The AIP is online.
The "AIP", "Aquarium Inventory Project" (formerly ACP) has set itself the goal of ensuring a broad-keepers and breeders database and to continuously expand it into a transparent presentation of the captive live fish and invertebrates.

The purpose is the distribution and conservation of cultivated species. Users of the database makes it possible to source local animals and to exchange experience with other users. At the same time, this program allows members and clubs to provide a platform for your stocks to collect, consolidate and publish.
