CICHLID WORLD BREEDER PROGRAM

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO RECOGNIZE LOCAL BREEDERS, ENCOURAGE DIVERSITY IN BREEDING, AND MOST OF ALL TO HAVE SOME FUN.  THE RULES ARE EASY:

1.  SPAWN AND RAISE AT LEAST 5 FRY TO AT LEAST 60 DAYS OF AGE FROM WHEN THEY BECAME FREE SWIMMING.

2.  FRY MUST BE YOUR OWN PERSONAL FISH, SPAWNED IN YOUR OWN HOME.  FISH SPAWNED "AT YOUR FRIEND'S HOUSE" OBVIOUSLY DO NOT COUNT.

3.  YOU GET POINTS FOR EACH SPECIES OF FISH ONLY ONCE (SO IF YOU SPAWN RED OSCARS AND TIGER OSCARS, YOU ONLY GET CREDIT ONE TIME)

4.  SPAWNING MUST BE RECORDED ON THIS FORM (JUST PRINT IT) AND TURNED IN, ALONG WITH 5 FRY TO CICHLID WORLD.

5.  TWO EXTRA POINTS WILL BE AWARDED TO THE FIRST PERSON TO SPAWN EACH SPECIES (YES, SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET EXTRA POINTS FOR SPAWNING CONVICTS!).

6.  ALTHOUGH NOT REQUIRED, PLEASE TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES.

7.  WE WILL POST ONLINE EVERYONE'S TOTALS AND SPECIES

8.  THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN, IF SOMETHING GETS OUT OF HAND, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ALTER THE RULES.

9.  NO POINTS FOR CROSS BREEDING OR MAN MADE FISH (GERMAN RED PEACOCKS, FOR EXAMPLE)  ALBINOS ARE ALLOWED AS THEY CERTAINLY EXIST IN THE WILD.  LONG FINED FISH, AND SPORTS (GOLD JACK DEMPSEY, RED DEVILS, GOLD SEVERUMS) ARE FINE.
