The C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program • Some species at risk

The purpose of the C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program is to encourage hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species-at-risk, while forming an information network between aquarists, scientists and conservationists. Hosted by C.A.R.E.S. speaker Klaus Steinhaus

Beautiful fish. It's too bad they are threatened. I didn't realize that Eretmodus cyanostictus were on that list.

Hi Betty, thank for stopping by. :)

Yes, you are correct. It is a shame that more and more of our beloved cichlids are in danger and it was a shock for me too to see the Eretmodus on that list.

I have 2 breeding groups of gobies, unfortunately I'll be having to pass one on to someone else as I'm about to move. They're a great fish though!

Eretmodus cyanostictus are at risk!! Im shocked since I see so many of them and so many variants everywhere. Is the species as a whole or is it just certain locations?

I was as shocked as you are. However, the whole species is labeled as "near threatened" due to over collecting. The next step up will be "vulnerable".

From what I just looked up, Eretmodus is threaten due to sediment and environmental reasons.

Is cares recognizing "near threatened" ?

Yes Sarah, CARES does recognize "near threatened".

Here are the CARES classifications:

Classification Abbreviations:

AR = At Risk in Nature: (Dr. Paul V. Loiselle)

CD = Conservation Dependent: (i.e., the species is part of a conservation program, which, if ended, would result in the fish being reclassified as "Threatened" within 5 years.)

CP = Conservation Priority: Species suitable for Breeder Award Programs. (Dr. Paul V. Loiselle)

CR = Critically Endangered: A species facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild in the immediate future (same as "EE" used by de Rham, & Nourissat)

EN = Endangered: Species facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild in the near future. (Includes species on the ALA list (2) shown as "Threatened.")

EW = Extinct in the Wild: Known only to survive in cultivation, in captivity or as a naturalized population (or populations) well outside the past range.

EX = Extinct: There is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died.

NT = Near Threatened: Species which are close to qualifying for classification to Vulnerable.

VU = Vulnerable: A species facing a high risk of extinction in the wild in the medium term future.

I like the idea of people coming together to help these fish, once I have more experience into raising cichlids I will look further into this, currently on my first cichlid tank about a week in.

The human destruction continues. They had a story on NBC this morning saying how aquatic wild life can be wiped out in 10 years due to many problems including over fishing.

I am able to help.

I would like to learn more about how I can help one or more of these species. I have many tanks that are flourishing and I am also capable of breeding them in a safe and dedicated environment. I have around 3000 gals behind glass and plenty of space and time. Let me know if I can be of any assistance. The best part is I am retired, that means I can dedicate plenty of time to these wonderful fish. :fish:

Once i buy my 220+ gal setup. Id love to get a set up for some Yellow Convicts.. I'm a fan of the normal convict cichlids. I had a beautiful male/female pair in my 35 hex front tank i used to have setup. they eventually mated. And i had to get rid of the male which i didnt want to. he was a beaut.. no hump.. very long fins.. top n bottom.. So i would take much pride in a pair of yellow's! :)

Paretroplus kieneri is my current breeding project. I will have to look into getting gobies. I love that fish and I will happily dedicate tank space.
Come join us at the Madison Area Aquatic Hobbyists (MAAH) meeting. http://madisonaquatichobby.com/
