I just deleted a credits section because I don't really think it is appropriate. If anyone wants it back feel free but to be honest I don't think we should have credits sections! Sorry I didn't sign this comment earlier by the way! Adam2307 12:24, 19 June 2008 (CDT)

that means that most of that article was probably cut and pasted, it should probably be reworded so it is not a carbon copy. --Cat 11:21, 19 June 2008 (CDT)

That is correct if articles are donated directly, we attribute them until they have been changed significantly. In this case, the article was simply a collection of knowledge the user put together from fourm postings. The attribution was also a thank you for help raising the species, not an attribution for the text. You are correct that this instance was inappropriate. Additionally there is no specific information on this species on the TFF therefore a link is not warranted. --Brian 12:11, 19 June 2008 (CDT)

Just to clarify...I was actually a minor part in the discussion on TFF and so I know that this was just a load of peoples postings all put together into something more coherent and not a copied artice. Also I am going to try and check some of the info from other sources because I also know from that thread that she has only kept these fish for a matter of days and so I think some of it needs referencing. I have also left TFF never to return the other day because I am getting fed-up with posters who think they know best and make stuff up to sound good and have egos bigger than the size of africa!...another reason to check some of the info!
