It has been a little while coming but I have updated our old records to be available on the new website. I haven't quite figured out what I need to do to make it all visible to everyone. I would love to hear of ideas from anyone that wants to discuss the program or has ideas on how it can improve. If anyone has submitted any spawns over the past 12 months, contact me and I'll make sure we are on the same page. David Glaze, I have your 4 spawns updated in the tracking log. Adam, I need to find a few of your forms. Contact me if you want to discuss! Mike 913-568-4014

Glad to see some activity on the BAP. It was always one of my favorite parts of the club. If I ever get my tanks organized again I would love to maybe work on Rainbows, Killifish and Characins and Minnows... Who knows it could happen but it is a challenge working with fewer tanks. When I was really after it I was rotating stock and tanks on a regular basis to accommodate the new challenges.

Just curious, did any of the old records from the BAP program make it. It's been a while, but I have a few things I could submit. I just don't remember what all I have already submitted.

I would love to be involved in breeder program. If you could send info on how to get started, that would be great. I will be at July meeting and had a lot of fun at the swap. Looking forward to next one.

Trish, glad to hear you are interested. BAP is pretty simple although my response probably seems a bit wordy! Think of it as similar to getting badges/awards in Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. We have different categories of fish and once you meet the requirements of that group, you get a certificate of accomplishment for that group. You also have the ability to win awards for specializing in a specific type of fish (Guppies, Angelfish, Discus, Livebearers, etc.) Normally, the awards are focused on breeding different species of fish, but this specialization allows you to participate when you have a specific passion for a single species or group of fish. Also, if you breed a certain category of fish ( like african cichlids, rainbowfish, tetras) you can get advanced awards for that activity. Finally, once you complete requirements for a certain number points, certain levels of completions of categories of fish and a few other requirements like writing an article of breeding your fish or doing a small talk on how you spawned your fish. You get a ranking and an award for achieving the rank. I'll try to link the rules to this thread in case anyone wants to read more. Finally, to prove that you have spawned a certain fish, you just have to fill out the form, and either donate 6 fry (4 weeks of age or older), donate the parents or if you prefer, you can donate $5 for the fish spawned. The form is to help us track your activity and the donation or $5 is your proof of donation. You can only spawn a species once. So black guppies and blue guppies are guppies and only count as a single entry for the regular program. But you can do each color or fin type to participate in the specialist category.
