Mag. Dr. Anton Lamboj and the www.cichlidenwelt.de starting.

Post by Cichlidenwelt » Wed May 02, 2007 12:36 pm

Hello forum readers,

As many of you know, is that the regions of West and Centralafrica are very unstable, years of civilunrest and corruption are a main factor for this.

On the aquatic front, its become very quiet, not only new imports but old favorites are hard to get. At the very best we are only getting surprise imports and an improvement is not in sight.

Also a reduction in hobbyists keeping rheophile cichlids from this region is making them very hard to get, we can see this from an old favorate "Steatocranus Casusrius".

Dr. Anton Lamboj spoke to me at a fishfair in Friedrichhafen (Germany) about this and if we were intrested in a conservation program for the rheophile cichlids from this region. The Cichlidwelt Forum naturaly agreed, so that the populations with the current stock would be protected.

With that the Conservation program "Rheopiler Cichlids" was born. Dr Anton Lamboj as many know is a speicalist on West African cichlids and we agree on his views on this troubled area.

He is also the founder of the "Aquarium Conservation Program"

The "Aquarium Conservation Program" is a database of which fish are kept and bred in the aquariums of the general public. It is also a way of finding out what fish have been bred and a way to distribute the young fish to other hobbyists so that the aquariums population can be maintained.

We are intrested in hearing from any hobbyist that wants to help us in building this database, by getting in touch with their current stock of wild and bred fish. Its the first step in maintaining our hobby.

We are also intrested in hearing from hobbyist that keep rheophile cichlids from the west and centralafrican region so that we can trade fish to make as wide a genepool as possible for the spieces Lamprologus, Steatocranus, Teleogramma etc.

It would be a shame if we lost current aquarium populations for ever, help us now that we can help future generations of hobbyists.

Oliver,

Probably you would get more response if you were more specific in terms of what is expected from participants? Is there is something that the Cichlid Room Companion can do to help please let me know.

We are looking for people, which are keeping rheophile Cichlids from the Congo Area. So they could register at Antons ACP program.
