Maybe in five or ten years there will be enough tried and true information that's accepted worldwide to compile something worthy of widespread publication.
I really, really wish it were possible now, though. Especially on a scientific front.
There are more and more journal publications about freshwater inverts lately. So that's a positive sign.
Truth be told, I'm disappointed you said this, as you were one person I hoped would contribute.
I've been thinking about this since I helped start the invert forum at AA.
My thoughts were despite there being much changing information, there is also a lot of false information, much of which we can all dispel. There are a plethora of experts to hobbyists here who keep shrimp successfully, and who can keep parameters at what shrimp love.
A question.. Where do you find these freshwater journals? I found one from an English scientist who published papers on new shrimp species being discovered.
I just feel like with an exploding population of shrimp keepers, a book on the basics is necessary for them.
I agree it should be an Ebook on Amazon first, but the nice thing about that is if we have some revelation, we can always update it or put out a new a new edition.
