Your completed form will be sent via email to us.

After acceptance, we will contact you for additional photos and materials needed for us to create your Registry page from the information you have provided.¬†Original photos or links to videos created by you and posted to sites such as YouTube are also greatly appreciated. By sending these to us, you are granting The Breeder’s Registry permission to use your material on this website and on other websites such as Facebook and Twitter, printed media such as fliers or newsletters and electronic media such as staff PowerPoint presentations and email updates we may use to promote aquarium propagation and The Breeder’s Registry – Thank you! ¬†Please allow us some time to send out your Spawning Report to our reviewers and receive their comments. Your submission is greatly appreciated.

Spawning Report Form

Thank you for registering as a Breeder in the database. If information is not available, write n/a. If the information is an approximation, place a tilde ( ~ ) in front of the data. If the information requested does not apply, leave blank. References to times should be relative to your photoperiod. This form is purposely designed to be “generic” and is applicable to fishes and invertebrates; so all fields may not be relevant. This was done to reduce paperwork and help conserve resources.
