    I have been working slowing for more than a year filling in species and photos on the monstrous huge but oh so helpful List of marine aquarium fish species wikipedia page. There are still many unrepresented species and species without images.

    Do you have photos of species missing from this page (or any other wikipedia page)? Have you got photos you're proud of and are willing to contribute to Wikipedia?

    If you are interested in helping out, upload your photos (and they must be your photos or photos you have unrestricted rights to) via Wikimedia Commons Image Upload Wizard or Wikimedia Commons Image Uploader.

    Once you have uploaded images PM me with the image page links and I will be happy to do all the wiki-editing to add it to the big list page and to species or genus pages if they exist.

    I've been in the reef keeping hobby for about two years and Wikipedia has been a great resource for learning more about individual species and families. I'm not much of a photographer but I have contributed a few images, Wikimedia: Bondolo's image uploads. I have made hundreds of edits to articles. I believe that contributing images and editing articles is a great way for reefing hobbyists to contribute back to the hobby and to share information for all our benefit.

    Having a purpose in taking great pictures and the pride of seeing one of your
    pictures on a wikipedia page is pretty rewarding too. To know that it's my picture people see when they visit Wikipedia : Open Brain Coral is pretty darn cool.

    Cheers!

    That's awesome! What a great idea.

    I just uploaded a photo of a green banded goby. Would you mind adding it to the page? http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:GreenBandedGoby.jpg

    I see a lot of fish marked not reef safe, though most I consider reef safe.

    Reef safe - won't harm corals IMO/IME

    Holywow, wikipedia keeps exploding every time I try to edit that document, so here you go: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:pseudanthias_bicolor_male.jpg

    Do you have this yet? Photo taken in 2005, my tank.

    Feel free to save the image, or if you want a jpg file emailed, to you, just let me know. Email is preferred, as I am an infrequent visitor here.
