My ideas may not be to everyones taste but I think that they could improve the site, but to get an accurate view of peoples opinions I have created this poll.
please add your comments.

here are the points in more detail:
*-The site should have a "how to look after Piranhas" page including info on tank size, water conditions,rocks,plants and tankmates.
*-There should be some info on which fish are found together in the same water from around the world e.g. in the amozon you can find piranhas,silver dollers and anglefish
*-There should be a porn link (everybody likes porn)
*-A comedy section should be added
*-There should be info & pics on piranhas in there natural habitat and how they kill again in their natural habitat
*-More pics of piranhas for easy identification

Innes,

These are great ideas....I specifically like 2 of them and maybe you guys can help make this happen.

How to look after piranhas - We need to make a "tutorial" section where people can write things and be put up for review to the members here. Once its gone through the review it will be "published" here and named a tutorial. Of course there willl be some sort of membership reward for this also.


pics of piranha for easy identification - We can have a seperate section of the page just dealing with this. Hopefully we can get fishman2's friend Frank to help, thus ensuring the accuracy of our information.

in adendum to this page should be a description of all the types of piranha and other info....i know this has been done before but we might as well have it here.

what do you think..

i appreciate your interest in improving this site innes!

From the other forum I am also going to add:

1. Husbandry forum
2. Live chat
3. Archive

I like the changes, and even more than the changes themselves, I like the way this board is open to making changes and taking the opinions of it's members.
Thanks Xenon

P.S. I still think you should add an all-fish forum! :nod:

how about:
*-the history of piranhas?
*-piranha recepies?
*-a spot the desiese with pics and info? - on natural medicines (eg salt baths) and the chemical medicines you can buy (like melafix)
*-tank size chart? - to work out how many gallons your tank is
*-info on products available and what they do! - like blackwater and stress-coat
*-any other info you might find in a good piranha book.

There will be no all-fish forum. This is a piranha site. Please visit some of our affiliates for different types of fish.

Good ideas (husbandry, live chat, archive) guys :D

One of my ideas that I would like to see is a multi-media database file on this site that holds nothing but factual info on the different Piranha species, husbandry, photos, videos, etc. I'm not talking about links. This will be scientific info that members have compiled. Before any info is stored on this file, it has to be approved by a majority of the P-Fury members and researchers and experts in the field such as Frank, PFish's friend who's a researcher at OPEFE. This file should be very well organized and user friendly. It will have a search feature as well to help members find info. And since it is a database file, it will be read only.

" PFish's friend who's a researcher at OPEFE."

If you are talking about me, I bailed out on Frank a month ago LOL. I'll have to send you a pm about that. But for our members knowledge I did web searches for Frank to help him keep up with questions piranha keepers were asking. This way he could input that into his web page. My biggest project was getting information for ternetzi vs nattereri. Frank has a ton of scientific material and old abstracts on majority of the piranha species. sh*t you would never see in a piranha book, real old descriptions. I just couldn't keep up with it (and him). To much stuff to deal with. Besides that, he has so much stuff in his head that he has not published yet that I would have gone nuts had I stuck around. Ray is still plugging away there, but I think he's leaving or has already. Frank you are too hard to work for! Especially for FREE (J/k)
AND WELCOME TO PFURY

That sounds like a good idea to me!
I like the idea of having static pages with lots of info on maintaining, feeding, breeding p's, species profiles etc. In this way, the site will be a great source of information as well as an interactive discussion board.

I'll help as much as possable, but I'm not all that hot on piranhas!
I am much better in the general of running fish tanks and looking after fish.

I've already written a couple of pages about keeping p's, general information etc. on my own website: I'll be happy to share it with this site, after painstaking scrutiny that is :laugh:

Took a look at your website
Alot of annoying popups, took more of my time trying to get out of that than actually reading your stuff. But I can say its not a bad website! Good information.
This portion of the thread should be under Articles and Links. I'm going to paste your link along with everybody elses into one big list there. I raised an eyebrow on this comment: 1 There's a lot of debate wheter Pygocentrus Ternetzi is a species of its own, or a regional (color-)variant or subspecies of P. Nattereri. As of yet, there is no definite scientific proof to substantiate either opinion."

This question has already been answered by Frank and science did you know that? Here is the link and the proof:

S. Ternetzi
