The mem­bers are the most impor­tant part of the Parosphromenus Project!

With the launch of this web­site (2011) the Parosphromenus-​Network cur­rently includes about 200 mem­bers in 16 coun­tries in Asia, Europe and Amer­ica, still with focus in Cen­tral Europe. We expect a sig­nif­i­cant growth in other coun­tries now that an inter­net site of the project has gone online. We invite you to join the project for the ben­e­fit of these fish which we would all like to preserve.

All those par­tic­i­pat­ing already, are listed in our data­base and do not have to reg­is­ter again. Every­one who is inter­ested in Licorice Gouramis and wants to sup­port their pro­tec­tion and con­ser­va­tion can be a par­tic­i­pant and becomes a mem­ber of the Parosphromenus–Net­work. Mem­ber­ship is free; it is suf­fi­cient to send a mail to This email address is being pro­tected from spam­bots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please enter your name, coun­try and the place where you live, because we want to update the map dis­play­ing the dis­tri­b­u­tion of Parosphromenus friends. Often some­body wants to know whether like-​minded peo­ple live nearby. Fur­ther com­mit­ments do not exist. On request a dele­tion from the list is pos­si­ble at any time.

We there­fore call on you to join us! Become par­tic­i­pants and mem­bers of the net­work of Parosphromenus friends! Only through joint efforts we can try to pre­serve this won­der­ful small fish. As indi­vid­u­als we are pow­er­less. This is true, not only for the con­ser­va­tion of the nat­ural habi­tats, but for the main­te­nance of the exist­ing aquar­ium stock as well. Only by exchang­ing fish and infor­ma­tion can sus­tain­able con­ser­va­tion breed­ing become pos­si­ble. But it is not nec­es­sary to take part in these activ­i­ties to join our net­work. Many mem­bers can sup­port us through shar­ing their researches . Com­mu­ni­ca­tion sup­port and indi­rect aid can be very effec­tive, too.

How­ever, it is our aim to involve as many ded­i­cated aquar­ium enthu­si­asts as pos­si­ble, to take part in the con­ser­va­tion efforts of the exist­ing aquar­ium pop­u­la­tions of these fish. We need many peo­ple, who vol­un­tar­ily will “adopt” a species or draw the atten­tion of oth­ers on the con­ser­va­tion objec­tive through their own activ­i­ties. We recog­nise this as an increas­ingly impor­tant task of the aquari­ium hobby, which has to find a new iden­tity in a world that is affected by destruc­tion of bio­log­i­cal diver­sity. In fact, about 80 per­cent of the actual par­tic­i­pants are already engaged in this task. The project tries to sup­port them, within the frame of its pos­si­bil­i­ties, by pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion, organ­i­sa­tional help and, within rea­son­able lim­its, also with fish. The lat­ter will be started in Ger­many, because here we still have the high­est den­sity of Parosphromenus enthu­si­asts. The mem­bers are the ones who make the project suc­cess­ful or not. We will pro­vide the frame­work; left alone, the sin­gle aquar­ist would be lost with this task. It can only be achieved in a com­mon endeavour.
