Fauna Marin GmbH Fauna Marin GmbH Aqua Medic All for Reef Tropic Marin

Special thanks / Hall of fame

For more than 17 years now, ( is the first contact point for all those who are, or have become addicts of the hobby of keeping marine aquaria, looking for recommendations how to take care of their animals and other interesting information.

When this project was launched in the year 2000, it was not at all in sight that it would be such a great success, and how many people would take part and make their numerous contributions. For of course, this ambitious project is not an attribute to an individual person, but to the many people associated with the hobby of fish keeping or diving, all these people deserve our special thanks for their wonderful commitment. No matter whether this is for pictures, videos, or the exchange of experiences! Ultimately, it is mainly the account of the different deposited experiences that make up the sea-water-Lexicon. They contribute to a better knowledge about the animals and also help to avoid incorrect purchases.

In particular our special thanks go to all the numerous volunteers, who spend their free time to investigate about newly received information and who correct and monitor the contents of the various comments. Over time, so many people have been involved, that it is impossible to mention them all by name. Therefore, this listing only reflects a fraction of the various helping hands, and if we should have forgotten someone, then please forgive us.

In particular we would like to mention the following helpers for their active support, whether administratively or with images and ideas:

on a voluntary basis administrators:

Andreas Völckers, Hamburg

Siglinde Müller, Schkopau

Corinna Müller, Würzburg

Klaus Schatz, Nürnberg 

Michael Limberger, Tettnang

Oliver Mengedoth, Recklinghausen

Torsten Schmidt, Bruchsal.

Alexander Thomasser, Villach AT  




Thanks also go to Manuela Kruppas for her idea for this on-line reference for marine animals. Our sponsors and advertisers should also not be forgotten. Through their support, they also help to keep this ambitious project going.
Finally, we want thank someone else very special: someone who provides us untiringly with new photos, videos and animal-keeping-experiences of a wide variety of animals. Someone who always has new ideas and motivates us all the time. Someone without the sea water lexicon would have never come to its significance.
Our thanks go especially to YOU, the dear users of
