Description

This article is from the Aquaria Newsgroup Topics and Conversion Tables FAQ, by Todd Zebert and Erik Olson with numerous contributions by others.

09 Are there any other related groups? Mailing Lists? Chat Lines?

A: None of these other groups are supported by this documentation or
any of its FAQs or archives, but they do have related themes:
* rec.ponds -- keeping outdoor ponds (usually with Koi and goldfish)
* alt.aquaria.killies -- keeping Killifishes.
* alt.aquaria.oscars -- keeping Oscars. Group created mid-1998 by
Mark Stone of Oscar Study Page fame.
* alt.binaries.aquaria -- pictures, may not be carried by many
servers.

There are also some E-mailing lists. Here are some we know about:
List Name Server Address What to Send as Message Body

Discus-L listserv@mitvma.mit.edu SUBSCRIBE Discus-L
BETTAS listserv@listserv.aol.com SUBSCRIBE BETTAS Your Name
Cichlids listserv@listserv.uh.edu, subscribe cichlid Your Name
Dwarf Cichlids apisto@majordomo.pobox.com subscribe Your Name
Aquatic Plants majordomo@actwin.com subscribe aquatic-plants
Goldfish goldfish-request@fischer.cs.umass.edu subscribe goldfish
Killies majordomo@mejac.palo-alto.ca.us subscribe killies

For instance, to subscribe to the Aquatic Plants list, send e-mail to
majordomo@actwin.com with the line "subscribe aquatic-plants" as the
message body.

Finally, there are interactive ``chat'' services, such as Fishroom, a
classy virtual meeting place resembling the ultimate fish nerd's dream
house. Fishroom was set up by Kevin Carpenter, and is accessible 24
hours a day. Specialized groups now have meeting times when you might
be able to talk to some experts. Simply

telnet kplace.monrou.com 1025

and follow the directions. It is important to telnet to port 1025, or
else you will get a normal boring unix prompt. Further help is
available on the WWW, or via anonymous ftp from
ftp://kplace.monrou.com/pub/fishroom/.
