View Full Version : Profiles AC Needs - June List Catfish

06-06-2009, 06:47 PM
A few days ago I promised to start publish a monthly list of profiles AC tropical fish needs. We need both the profiles and pictures of all the species below. You are welcome to submit profiles of species not on this list but if you submit species on the list you get twice the regular bonus. I.e. you will receive 10000 AC points and 400 rep points. For each profile of the species below you submit and thats get accepted. If you submit just a picture you will receive 3000 AC points and 100 rep points.

I am also introducing a new award. Contributor of the month. Whoever earns the most AC points for pictures and profiles in a single month will win this award. I will also give out some extra AC points as a bonus among those who submit articles.

The theme of the profiles will be a different one each month and this month it is catfish. Next month it will be something else.

I will mark profiles I have recieved in red.

06-06-2009, 08:05 PM
I call dibs on BN Pleco!

If it hasn't been done that is...:11:

06-06-2009, 08:09 PM
Kaz, that means you have about 63 profiles to do. LOL All members of the Ancistrus genus are BN plecos. LOL

06-06-2009, 08:22 PM
Kaz, that means you have about 63 profiles to do. LOL All members of the Ancistrus genus are BN plecos. LOL

:hmm3grin2orange: :hmm3grin2orange:

I'll come up with a profile or two. Not on anything from the Ancistrus genus though.

06-06-2009, 08:43 PM
Kaz, that means you have about 63 profiles to do. LOL All members of the Ancistrus genus are BN plecos. LOL

I was refering to the most common one but whatever you can do it if you want.

They all have simular care though, Right? Most websites only have one profile on BNs.

I feel silly now...

I was wondering why I couldn't find two sites that agreed on the name of the BN pleco.

06-06-2009, 09:04 PM
Working on the synodontis species as we speak...

06-06-2009, 09:09 PM
Platydoras costatus,picture only.
Corydoras panda pic only
I will email to william

06-06-2009, 09:22 PM
I will do the niger catfish!
and, if you are going to do a profile, for everyones sake, please post that you are doing it, for people don't do the same one, and no one waste there time:22:

06-06-2009, 09:36 PM
I can send you :

Panaque maccus
Otocinclus vittatus
Corydoras paleatus
Chaetostoma milesi
Hemiancistrus sp. (L128)
Corydoras trilineatus

via mail? link? on here?

06-06-2009, 09:44 PM
Submit via the form ( http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/submit/profile.php ) so that I get everything in one place!

If you submit just images simple enter the name + the word picture in the name field and the picture in the picture field and leave everything else blank

06-06-2009, 09:50 PM
I have marked those I have recieved in red followed by the name of the submitter.

I have marked those who has been called green followed by the name of the person who will write them.

kaz: I put you down for the common BN.

Jess: Are you talking about pics or profiles. Just so I know if I should mark them as called.

Also I want to add.
4 profiles done allready + some pics and more called

06-06-2009, 09:59 PM
Wow, I'm so awesome I already made this profile.



Back to the drawing board! :scry:

06-06-2009, 10:02 PM
Sorry, someone told me I was missing that one. Should have checked before believing them ;-)

06-06-2009, 10:16 PM
we already have sterbai, i was going to it the other day but then found it!

EDIT: I will do Pimelodus pictus tonight..
and I also encourage everyone to look under common AND scientific name before doing a profile, thats what i do before doing one :)

06-06-2009, 10:19 PM
I will do both piccies and profiles :11:

06-06-2009, 10:20 PM
Ok now we will have an even better one. With care advice from 2 people ;-)

Seems like it can be a good idea to look at the list of existing species before writing anything to make sure it not exist. I will take better care to avoid this with next month list. This was written in a hurry.

If it is on the list you will recieve points etc even if it allready exist.

06-06-2009, 10:20 PM
Great jess. Will mark them as taken. Please note that one of C paleatus is written by oscarfreak.

Thanks all!

06-06-2009, 10:40 PM
Yes I am horrible at this.

06-06-2009, 10:47 PM
I would like to ask to reserve all of the Synodontis species. Thanks Will!

06-07-2009, 02:59 AM
William, can you get that code removed? I have lost the data that I wrote for the profile Im working on twice now and only because I keep getting the code wrong.

06-07-2009, 03:05 AM
Yes I can but I will need to talk to the guy who wrote the form. Hopefully it will be gone sometime tomorrow but no promises. Might take longer.

06-07-2009, 03:11 AM

06-07-2009, 10:32 PM
I can do the Royal Pleco (Panaque nigrolineatus).

06-07-2009, 11:59 PM
