Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.

Enjoy the forum. Ü

Our very best regards,

Fish ID - Threespot angelfish - Apolemichthys trimaculatus ???
Posted on: 13/02/2019 07:01:28

Hi. This fish was seen on a dive at Siaes tunnel, Palau (06-11-2019). It looks like the three spot angelfish, but it lacks the whitish colored anal fin. This fish had a bright yellow anal fin. The black edge of the fin is present. Is this a known color variation, or is it a similar looking (sub)species ? I will send the link to the youtube-video by email. Any suggestions ? Thank you !

Need ID for a brackish water Goby in Southern Vietnam mangrove
Posted on: 11/02/2019 11:52:33

I have caught a small goby in a brackish water body in Southern Vietnam (Near Vung Tau area). The area is swarm-like with mangrove trees. Attached is the picture. Could you please help me with the ID? My first guess would be Acentrogobius cyanomos due to the black color with light dots on its body.

Data over time
Posted on: 03/02/2019 03:10:37

I am an artist (OK, mostly a math teacher) working to portray environmental data visually. I am currently working on a project involving ocean health. I am trying to figure out how to download annual data from FishBase. It could be population of a particular species, annual catch data, or really anything that has one data point per year and at least 50 years of data. Any suggestions?
