Before I can post to this thread I needed to learn up on TFK,

Cathyís homepage of tropical fish keeping.com first alexa reference
Order of visitors by first five countries: United States 55%, Australia 9%, United Kingdom 7%, India 6%, Indonesia 4%.
Order of upstream sites: Google.com 38.2%, Google.co.uk 10.2%, Yahoo.com 5%, Google.ca 2.6% and fishlore.com 2%
In light of these percentages an update / improvement of web site is needed especially fish profiles losing visitors because of lack of usability to search engines and other website will continue. It is generally thought that using scientific names for plants and livestock is in vogue but is this appropriate reasoning to send visitor away to other websites providing access via common names. Are we going to blindly follow other websites in the way information is presented Ö this penguin methodology will not advance or improve our standing but will drag us down.
I donít understand why you all desire to make everything more complicated. I read your source code and have to say you all are not using all the possible features of XHTML 1.0.
Your xhtml pages are not verified / validated is the code flakey and not capable of meeting XHTML requirements. I have not looked at the CSS and the way it is used.
Byron in a post said there are software restriction to using both scientific names and common names. This I just donít understand why not use java scriptís mouseover to render both an image of the critter and provide the common name on a mouse roll over of the scientific name?? your admin or web developer can do it in a few minutes. Of course you could use css3 which is supported by most new browsers to bring common name visible on mouse over and then fade it to keep current rendering. There are many options which provide the page stickiness and increased usability.
Be creative folks in you efforts to develop a successful and usable fish profiles.
