A Link to a Lot of Great Fish Related Info

Post by TwoTankAmin » Thu Jan 09, 2020 12:19 am

Over the years I have accumulated a lot of links that relate to the hobby. Many of these are papers or university publications. I had a couple of good articles bookmarked which moved over the years and I could not find them. I was trying to dig up two of such articles again recently having failed several times before. I finally hit the jackpot. Not only did I find links to the articles but what I found was an index to many articles which are of great use to hobbyists. I would like to share this information members like me who lack any formal training and often are at a lost as to where to find good information backed by actual science. Well here is a great resource:

“The following publications cover a variety of topics pertaining to commercial ornamental aquaculture and non-native aquatic species. The majority of these publication are extension fact sheets from the University of Florida http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ and the Southern Regional Aquaculture Center (SRAC) http://www.srac.msstate.edu/, of which the University of Florida is a part. Each publication is an Adobe Acrobat PDF file.”

Here is the link so you can have a look yourselves http://sfrc.ufl.edu/fish/outreach/extpubs/
Most of the info is not specific to home aquariums/ponds, but will still be very useful. Especially the sections with extensive info on diseases, treatments and water chemistry. When you visit the index page, please Keep Scrolling Down
