The Conscientious Aquarist magazine has come a long
way since the very first issue, back in May/June 2004. As the hobby
has moved forward, so has WetWebMedia. For a moment, lets take a
quick look at the statement made by Bob Fenner on the inaugural
issue of Conscientious Aquarist magazine.
"Hello and welcome to the inaugural
edition of our on-line magazine, Conscientious Aquarist. As
with our website
WetWebMedia.com and bulletin board
WetWebFotos, CA is an ongoing attempt to inform and inspire
folks concerning ornamental aquatics. In actual fact, the scope,
purpose and goal of our efforts is a bit more high-sighted. It
is our wish to enhance other people’s love of their own lives
through an appreciation of the living world. In down to earth
terms, we hope to help fellow aquarists enjoy, understand, study and
share what they experience and learn about aquatic systems,
environments and biota.
We are blessed with twin editors,
Adam Cesnales and Scott Fellman who will be delegating, editing,
posting, and managing all aspects of CA, as well as gathering
content from writers and photographers for articles and image-work
on many aspects of the hobby, business and science of aquatic life
keeping. If you have had occasion to think of becoming a
“content provider” in our genre, do consider making submissions of
your work to Scott and Adam.
A beginning is a very delicate thing indeed, and
the start of a new online magazine in our field is a daunting task.
But what better way to add to our collective body of knowledge than
to gather input from friends known and yet to be met? It is
our hope that CA will “fill in the gaps” in our websites, and
stimulate discussion amongst new to well-experienced aquatics types
The journey begins.
The striking part is, that the above statement
still applies today, 4 years later. The only thing that has changed,
is the members who work on the Conscientious Magazine production.
The intention of the Conscientious
Aquarist team is continue what has been done in the past which is to
produce a free online magazine which is tailored to all levels of
experience, all aspects of the hobby, for all age ranges.
We hope you enjoy the new Conscientious Aquarist Magazine, and
please do provide feedback to
