    Default New Arapaima species discovered, and it is significant

    This is certainly a fish too big for the home aquarium unless you are lucky enough to have an entire room functioning as an aquarium. But it is a very significant scientific discovery that may be interesting to some members. This is arguably the largest freshwater fish species in the world, if the recorded sizes are accurate; and even if not, it is still at the top of the list.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    It is insteresting news. I expect there might be more species still. Allways wanted to keep one of these.

    BTW this was posted on the forum a couple of days ago
    New species of Arapaima discovered

    So if you do not get many response it is not that we dont find it interesting, nor that we do not appriciate you posting it.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Thanks William, You know, I thought i had seen something here about this, when I read my Amazonas newsletter, but couldn't find it with a quick scan, so posted it.

    And BTW, are members generally interested in new species? On my last forum I posted these a lot, since I receive several newsletters and keep up with some of my scientific friends, but I know not everyone cares and I don't want to burden the forum with stuff no one wants to read.
