Help: Getting Started

First off, welcome to The Aquarium Wiki Encyclopaedia! This is a website that is powered by the MediaWiki software. This is the software developed by the folks who run Wikipedia. We are however not affiliated with the Wikipeida project.

Instead of a free encyclopaedia about everything, The Aquarium Wiki strives to be an encyclopedia for the freshwater and saltwater fish keeper!

If this is your first time at this site we will try to help you out as best we can. You may want to start by reading the local help site or the Wikipedia help site.

With the Aquarium Wiki, YOU are the writer and editor. That's right, YOU and your fellow aquarium enthusiasts write all of the information on this site. With that being said, I know what's going through your mind right now: "Whoah"! That's right ladies and gentlemen. YOU have the power to give knowledge back to the rest of the community.

If you see a mistake on a page or want to add more on a subject that is dear to you, all you have to do is find a page that needs editing, click on the edit button on the top of the page, and presto! You've just benefited tens of thousands of people across the globe. To go even further, maybe you would like to create a page.

Of course you'll want your own personal stamp on this website! To create a name for yourself, simply click on the link in the upper right hand corner.

Thank you for your attention, and we sincerely hope you enjoy yourselves on The Aquarium Wiki!
