    Long story short: I'd like people to post information for one vendor who sells fish online. Just pick one and please post the following information:

    Name of Website
    URL of website
    Site Owner/Proprietor (if possible)
    Facility City, Facility State
    Contact phone number
    contact email address
    Type of fish sold
    Any special information

    For types of fish sold, please limit to the following categories:
    Freshwater/Saltwater/Brackish
    Old World cichlids/New World Cichlids/Other cichlids
    Community type fish
    Catfish

    I think it will be very useful to have a thread with this information when people are searching for fish sources.

    Example:

    Dave's Rare Aquarium Fish
    www.davesfish.com
    Dave Schumacher
    San Antonio, Texas
    (210) 599-9444
    Freshwater/OW cichlids/NW cichlids/other cichlids/catfish
    specializes in rare and hard to acquire fish

    Short story long: I am working on a project for a graduate school class. I have to develop a website that includes a searchable database with several tables. I plan to use the information provided to populate a database. The website will allow people to search for vendors according to various criteria. It will provide a list of vendors with basic information. Each table must have at least 15 entries. I'm sure we could come up with 15 sources. Submissions will help provide information to site members, and will make my homework a little easier. Feel free to provide any comments, but I don't want to make this very detailed and make the project more difficult than is possible. In the future if the website is functional, I may look into further developing it and publishing it. Thanks for your information in advance. A future goal would be to add physical store locations, but for the scope of my project, I will limit data entries to online vendors.

    Thanks Jon. Anyone else have a minute to do some quick research and post a response? I'm hoping to gather information for the following sites:

    Reserve Stock Cichlids
    Atlantis
    Live Fish Direct
    American Cichlids
    SI Cichlids
    Tom's Tanganyikans
    Valley Aquatics
    Blue Chip Aquatics
    Cichlids and Herps
    Little Africa Aquatics
    The Wet Spot
    Frybabies
    Msjinxd
    Cichlids Are Special
    Fosters & Smith
    That Fish PLace
    Discus Hans

    Of course, other sites would be welcome as well. I will be building this database over the weekend.
