ID requests from home aquaria will not be accepted and topics will be removed. Please take the time to catch, photo and release unidentified fish streamside.
Location, at least general location (state, major drainage, etc) is required for any posts in this section. Posts without location will be removed without question.

Field IDs are the way to go -- this should have been done from the beginning!
If you don't have a clue what something is, why would you want to take it home and drop it in your aquarium? Most of our native fishes are common enough that once you get a positive ID, if you go back to the same locality you will likely catch more.

This is exactly how I felt once the change was made. We're trying to take a look at the forum from different angle which is kind of tough, for me at least. I want everyone to feel free to PM with suggestions or post your ideas and we'll keep patching up stuff as we can.
I believe this change reinforces the NANFA code of ethics expected from this forum.

Can we make an exception for the "look what I found in the feeder tank at the pet store" posts that newcomers (and regulars) make periodically? That seems like a fairly different case.
Surely that has been taken into consideration, and certainly the mods will deal with this case by case. For instance if someone were to go collecting with a more experienced individual, and brought home fish knowing the ID's at the time, but happened to now have a hard time differentiating between two species, I am sure that our mods will consider that.
I would be sure to state the circumstances clearly in the thread.
