My new idea is creating something like the booklets you get free with fish medicines - where it has a bit about what commen symptems might mean, eg. suger grains = white spot, and big puffy eyes = popeye.
also we should have a pic of a piranha pointing out which part is which, eg. caudal fin, pectoral fin and anal fin, etc.
I also think a chart for working out tank volume by the tank dimentions would be a good idea

You mean one of these:


I also like the idea of the booklet with diseases and cures: maybe it can be made up in pdf-format (ie. for Adobe Acrobat Reader), so anyone can download it, and print it.

yes that is the idea - but you missed the Caudal peduncle where the Caudal fin meets the fish's body, also on some fish - but not that piranha - their is a pelvic or ventral fin

Dammit, I hoped you wouldn't notice


Well, this fish is my largest red, and he has one of his ventrals bitten off when he was young... I guess I photographed his bad side for once


And the Caudal peduncle can be added: no probs, once my computer stops dicking with me

Except some of you have anatomical mistakes in naming parts.
yeah, Nate the caudal fin = tail
where is your pelvic or ventral fin?
and you didn't mark the caudal peduncle, but apart from that it looks good - better than I can do.

Once we have one with these put right, it will be a great addition to the site

Can I use that graphic Judazzz?
Sure, feel free to use it: I need to adjust it a little, though, but I'll send you an update as soon as I've done it (damn puter broke down again
)

Except some of you have anatomical mistakes in naming parts.
Frank, could you let me know what needs to be corrected (besides the already mentioned ventral fin and caudal pecuncle), so I can add those revisions as soon as I have the chance to do so...

Jonas I love your image, send me an updated copy.
I bought a new motherboard today (hopefully, this will finally bring all pc trouble to an end
), so I again have to reinstall my system, but as soon as it is set up again, I'll send you a new version...

I think that both are good, but Jonas shows the lateral line better than Nates


however Nates has the pelvic or ventral fin showing, and marked.

Not a problem, I'm going to be doing a test in Pirana Science which will include naming the actual parts in scientific names instead of mix-matched scientific terms as seen above.

As for the photos, it is not aimed at one person, you all have mistakes in your images. Some more than others.
