Girardinichthys viviparous is a goodeid that comes from the canals and lakes on the high plateau of central Mexico in the Mexican states of Mexico (and perhaps Hidalgo, see later comment). This species is actually found in the ponds and lakes in Mexico City or the Federal District. This fish was originally described by Bustamente in 1837. With such an old reference I had no luck in finding that reference so I thought that I would try finding information on specimens collected for Museums. I contacted an ALA member (Dan Fromm) who has done considerable research on wild species and he pointed me to NEODAT II database.

I’ve had the pleasure of acting as auctioneer at many aquarium society auctions in the last few years, and in that capacity have sold thousands of bags of fish and assorted aquarium paraphernalia. In the process I have developed some rather strong feelings on how the aquarists can best realize the maximum profit for his goods, and conversely, on how a seller can guarantee a low return (and, occasionally, the wrath of the buyers) by poor presentation of the items he has for sale. In this article I hope to bring out some of these pet peeves and helpful hints with the aim of educating the auction sellers...

Sounds easy… a bit of checking here… a bit of checking there, but being a moderator is one thing, and being a "good" moderator is another. I've been moderating on several forums now for some time, and am a senior moderator on one of the forums I frequent most. Usually you ask if you can be a moderator, or in many cases are asked by the Admins or staff if you would like to moderate, mainly due to your knowledge and activities on the forum. In asking you, the Admins then become dependant on you as a moderator to make the correct and sensible decisions at all times.
