First topic message reminder :

Conservation
Awareness
Support
Time & Effort

CAST your net out and open a space for a rare species!!

Everything will be tracked and documented right here on USA Fishbox.

The CAST program was invinted by me on 4-2-11. I was thinking about getting a program started for some time. At first I did not know where to really go with the program but I really wanted to make sure the goal was all about conservation and helping these rare species of fish that are in the hobby. I have read in to other programs like C.A.R.E.S. and also one that HCCC started to keep these rare species of fish going strong. I have made a bunch of my own ideas with a little mixing of others and I think I have created another monster!!

The only requirements to get involved in this program is be a member of USA Fishbox, have space for a rare species and sign a letter of aggrement on the rules and requiremnts in the program.

Rules and requrements are simple.

-You must agree that NONE of the fry will ever be sold unless it's a donation going back in to the program.

-You must agree that NONE of the parents/breeders will ever be sold.

-Everything will be documented on USA Fishbox, so you must have a way of taking pictures and must give feedback weekly to bi weekly updates on everything.

-You must agree that these fish are actually NOT YOURS. They are owned by the CAST program. YOU are only caring for them.

-If you fail to meet the requirements at anytime you will be removed from the program and fish will go to someone else. IF YOU SELL FISH behind the programs back you will be banned, removed and forever knows as a fraud! Very sincear about what the program is about.


If you want to get involved contact me ASAP.

I am looking to get people involed. I would like to see this expand in the North Texas and surrounding areas. But this does not exculde anyone who lives elsewhere.

This cost nothing but a helping hand and a small donation. ( $1-$2 per fish. Fish will be ready at 1" or larger.) You will be aloud a min. of 6 fish and a max. of 20 of one species. You can have as many species as you want.

If you have a tank 20G or bigger let me know and I will get with you to discuss details on what species we can put in your tank.

If you don't have a tank or $$ to get one. I can get one for you just lend me the space. Please get with me if you have space for a tank and are willing to help the CAST program. (once the program gets bigger we will be able to help with some finances)

The fish that are choosen to put in your tank will be tracked by all of us here at USA Fishbox. I want to keep track of who has the fish, how many, if they are spawning and where the fry go. ALLLLL fry that are breed will be donated to other tanks for CAST. None will be sold unless it is for donations.

I think it would be awesome to have many species and grow the #s in the thousands and keep track of everything!

Please contact me to get involed in anyway!

Yeah this is old news. I said this like 2-3 months ago after JB said something I looked in to it. He was correct.

I am willing to open a few tanks to the CAST program. I may have some nyererei mwanza bay fry to donate here soon depending on how my females do holding (have 3 holding at the moment) I prefer vics and the upside is my 3 children have become very involved with my hobby especially knowing that by breeding the nyererei we are assisting in ensuring they are around for there children and grandchildren to enjoy. I am in the process of obtaining some sp 35 tomato haps, and hopefully some sp 44 both to breed and if all goes well would be willing to donate some fry to the program.
