Hi all, We've been putting the feelers out for participants for a documentary and people keep telling me to post it on here. So here I am! Details below. Project summary: A short (<7 min) documentary about the aquarium hobby. This is a student film. The producers are both fish enthusiasts, hence our choice of subject. We want to show a world most people would not have seen before, and portrait the varied and passionate individuals that make our fine hobby go around. Requirements: We need 5-6 people to represent varying sub-sections of the hobby, including but not limited to: - reef keeping - planted aquaria - natives - cichlids - monster fish - breeders - collectors If you wish to take part, we'd need to be able to film you at your premises with your fish. We'll be running a minimal and respectful crew. Would require 4-6hrs of your time, plus talks before shooting. You need to be located Brisbane or surrounds. Applications: Please email me with a bit about yourself and your focus within the hobby. See note below. Note that we aren't expecting David Attenboroughs. We want to showcase the people of this hobby just as they are. NOTE: It seems this project has raised a bit of suspicion from people on social media, which I actually think is fair. I'm a hobbyist too, and I used to be pretty paranoid about scammers when I had a shed full of fish. On that basis, I'm offering my student email address as proof that I'm a legitimate student. Whoever ends up in this project will be shown all relevant duty of care: addresses won't be revealed in any way and we don't have to show the full extent of your collection if you'd prefer.

What do you enjoy about fish? Would you ever take your fish to the vet? Do you think fish have a three second memory? As part of a PhD research study at The University of Western Australia, we are now seeking volunteers to complete a simple, short online survey. This study aims to give us a better understanding of why people keep fish and what factors can influence the welfare of aquarium fish. It doesn't matter if you are an expert aquarist, just starting out, or have never even owned fish. All answers will be appreciated. The survey takes just 10-15 minutes, is totally anonymous, confidential and can be completed online. For more information and to take part in this research, please visit http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/233487/fish This survey is purely for research purposes; you will NOT be contacted for commercial or marketing purposes. This study has been approved by the University of Western Australia's Human Research Ethics Committee. ps. I'm happy to post about the results on this thread once they are in if people are interested in finding out
