We welcome you back for our second year of Modern Tropical
Fish Bytes (MTFB). We are ecstatic with the response
of all of you folks and we are looking forward to seeing
what is going to happen to the aquarium world this year.
Ricardo Cervantes deviated from his normal Discus article
this issue because of an “event”. Boy is that
an understatement . . . it was an Aquarium Happening in Singapore.
Wait until you see what happened over there. What a feast
for sore eyes! For sure the aquarium world is alive and well
in places other than the United States.
We want to extend to Mike Wise our thanks and gratitude
for writing an Apistogramma article for this edition
for wonderfully knowledgeable aquarists to take the time
to put their knowledge on paper and share it with all of
Going into our second year we are tremendously encouraged
with what the "tracking" program for MTFB is telling
us. On average each issue of MTFB had 20,000 + individual "hits" (not
the same IP address) coming from 22 different countries .
. . Indonesia, Taiwan, Canada, Denmark,
France, Germany, Kuwait, Lithuania, Singapore, Spain, Netherlands (in no particular
order) and many, many others. Folks, that's a lot of "hits".
We are quite proud of this very different revolution in aquarium
literature in which we are participating. In the truest sense
the internet is limited by only our imagination and we are
working on this.
Why not write down your thoughts and submit them to us?
We won't turn down any article and probably have a picture
or two that will go with your article. If not your photo(s)
will of course be given full credit. Think of it, 20,000+
aquarists will read your thoughts on the state of YOUR hobby.
We are in particular need of Saltware articles and articles
other than cichlids! We won’t turn down a cichlid article
either but for the other articles we would be forever in
your debt. You write/we print!
ALSO . . . Please remember
to send us all of your club's activities . . . meetings,
auctions, fish shows,
How can we help you if you don't send us the information?
We want to fill up the Shows & Conventions page and the
Club page! Don't be shy...do it!
Welcome to our world!!!....... Mike Jacobs & Jim
