What the Parosphromenus project is all about

The project pur­sues four aims:

1. To increase our knowl­edge of the genus Parosphromenus.

2. To share this knowl­edge and strength­en­ing of the aware­ness of their plight

3. To pro­mote con­trol of the biotope preser­va­tion and nature con­ser­va­tion in their homelands

4. The preser­va­tion and enlarge­ment of the avail­able aquar­ium populations

The first point is above all a sci­en­tific task, how­ever, our aquar­ium friends dur­ing the past years have also con­tributed con­sid­er­ably to the improve­ment of our knowledge.

The sec­ond point is impor­tant because one is only will­ing to pro­tect what one knows. Unfor­tu­nately, still many aquar­ists are not aware of the dan­gers in the home­lands of some of the fish main­tained in aquariums.

Of all points, the third one is cer­tainly the most impor­tant but at the same time the most dif­fi­cult to have an impact on. In this field, and in coop­er­a­tion with oth­ers who are ded­i­cated to the pro­tec­tion of the South­east Asian rain forests and there fauna and flora, a lot has to be done.

On the other hand the fourth point is the most obvi­ous to aquar­ists, par­tic­u­larly when they have an inter­est to give more mean­ing to their hobby, exceed­ing mere enter­tain­ment or dec­o­ra­tion. There­fore, this is a main focus of the present and future work of the project.
