2010 breeders challenge- vote stopped, new poll

Postby damer » Mon 11 Jan, 2010 1:23 pm

Hi all, i have finally organised a poll :nut:

these have been taken from another thread, and i added assessors as i didnt think of them and think they would also be good.

PLEASE

1) only vote if you are genuinely interested in participating, no matter what the outcome is. if you are not going to participate if a certain species doesnt get over the line, then please dont vote. (edit: if the winning species is totally unsuitable for your tank, im sure people wont feel bad towards you not going ahead)

2) only vote if you are prepared to copy any information onto MOFIB, especially success stories

3) take into consideration ability to get broodstock

4) take into consideration some species are not that easy to get to spawn.


could everyone reply with a "voted" post so we know who is prepared to participate.

everyone really needs to think about it before voting.

take the following into consideration-

seahorses- really need their own tank
pipefish- maybe a bit harder to do. MOFIB are doing the "dragon faced" for those interested.
clownfish- can take AGES to get them to spawn if they do at all.
assessors- maybe a bit hard to pair up but apparently easy enough to raise
striped fang blenny- they are ugly ;) :roflmao:

any problems, questions etc, let me know.

Damien

Can I ask why again there are two options for Fang Blennies? Why not just Meicanthus sp?

I recall last year the combined totals of Meicanthus sp were the same as Gobiodon sp, its just the blenny votes were spread.

Blennies are probably the best option, but again this year they are likely to lose because their votes will be spread.

the poll looks like an uncle johnnie republic referendum question! :)

I like my lawnmower blenny and would vote for them if allowed to breed them. Genus only.

seahorses, pipefish and the clowns are open to species if chosen and the gobiodon sp was left open last year so I also agree the blennies should be left open to species too. Ill wait to see what happens there before I put in a vote. I already own one Meicanthus atrodorsalis but would still love to see it open to the others of the species.

.


because no one asked for it in the discussion topic.

yes, because other than a few names thrown around for seahorses, again no one really nominated a species in the discussion topic.

keeping it species specific is for easiness.

the almost final list has been up in the discussion topic for a while now, and no one really commented.

lux_06,

There is nothing stopping you from attempting to raise the assessor larvae on your own, there are a few of us here who are breeding fish (among other things) that can answer questions and what not.

Just because everyone else is doing something else doesn't mean you can't try a different species ;)

Actually the nomination was just for "fang blennies", it was you who nominated them down to species level.

I'm not trying to be rude, I just don't want to see them lose to another unsuitable species because they are disadvantaged in the poll, like happened last year.

I think all the species mentioned are doable. Apart from possibly clownfish, if people do not already have a spawning pair
