For those interested to know, I've been doing some updates to the OPEFE web site, including some major announcements. As you know OPEFE has discontinued advertising certain forums. My reasons generally involve non-activity (dead site), illegal copyright infringement and in cases of forum that go "for profit". For those of you that don't know, OPEFE is strictly non-profit. Not monies are taken for any operation of this site. So I have strict guidelines on which forums are supported.

PiranhaKeepers, to me is one of several forums that I hold in high regard. Namely because of the members and the desire to learn about piranhas and their care. One could argue that a for profit does the same thing. However, in my opinion, for profit means you are making information available only to make money. In this case, advertising which I personally abhor in a hobbyist web site. Granted, day to day operations cost money. Which is why collecting donations for the day to day operation is far different than collecting to line your pocket. I hope this makes it clear where I am coming from.

Also added to the OPEFE web site, PK will be the main home of OPEFE for science information and identifications. I have noted this on the home page as well.

I sincerely hope we can all make this the top piranha site in the world. But it can only happen with your help and input.

Best fishes,
Frank

I've also noticed the colors changing. Either that or I have a tumour. Either way. I'm glad you stuck around here with us..

BTW let me know if you need photos of any of my P's... I can replace the Serrulatus one if you would like.

The photos will be updated later. For now, just doing addons information and removing others. So when ready will announce it. Thanks :)

I dont think you could have picked a better place to call home. This site will remain my piranha hobby headquarters.

I see a lot of potential for a strong hobby piranha site. And I've seen plenty come and go over the years!

I don't know about smooth. I dread the amount of pages I have to review and update.

All of them. No specific one. For a home setting perhaps a couple sanchezi or denticulata. Mostly for color.

Thanks FEEFA . The color change of the home page is experimental. All the pages will be uniform once I decide on the color scheme. I get tired of the color and change it every couple years or so. Each page matches the home page as I begin to make corrections and additions. My self-imposed deadline for release is 1 January 2012 at the latest.

I try to visit all my endorsed forums during the spring and summer. Just isn't always possible. So I choose a base of operations.
