Hey guys. I often find myself looking through various websites and message boards trying to find more information on Tropheus. As a result i decided to start a Tropheus Wikipedia entry.

For those who dont know Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia. Every entry in
wikipedia can be edited by anyone. Theres such a lack of information on these fish I thought it was a good idea. Anyone can contribute and I think it will be fun. Please feel free to add/edit/change whatever. It would be nice to have a great Tropheus resource maintained by enthusiasts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropheus

as of now theres nothing there.. to edit simply click on Edit this page :thumb:

This is a very good iniciative!
My english is not good enough to take part in the writing of the article but I support it and I will watch the progress and will help with minor changes if needed.

I edited it some today. Its mostly gibberish and general info. I linked CF's articles and such. Thanks for the supportive messages and emails!

remember you do not have to register to make edits to the page. Just click edit and type away!

It's going great so far!

But just a piece of advice (no need to follow it):

I would suggest you approach this entry from the eyes of a scientist investigating these fish in the wild, as opposed to an aquarist writing an entry on his favourite fish (don't include things like pH, GH, favoured foods at home, tank setup etc.)

Good idea. I just thought it would be better to have every area covered instead of limiting it. Hey the people will decide eventually what goes or stays. Thanks for the contributions people! its looking great so far.

woohoo.. I saw even Clown Loaches had an entry.. and they had some kind of dialog box on the right hand side. I looked at the code and copied it. Maybe someone can help fill it out ! check the updates!

like posted earlier, if someone with more scientific knowledge can fill in that will be great

It is going just great!
Only one thing bothers me - why there is a picture of clown loach under the sign "Tropheus" on the right?

because someone hasnt fixed it yet :lol:
You're right. It is done already. The picture is not good but at least it is a Tropheus. :D
I also corected the scientific classification and added metric measures to the profile.
