Shedd- cichlids got the shaft

12 years 4 months ago #6611 by excuzzzeme
I think they should be called out on their "misrepresentations". I would complain to the director.

As far as the drape-apes go, watch them and you see what the parents have taught or failed to teach. I have no problem speaking up when ill-behaved carpet-crawlers or adults fail to maintain a respectful decorum in a public place. By the same token, it is odd that people see the lack of manners in someone else's kids can be blind to the behavior of their own! Before anyone gets their panties in a bunch - I have 6. I like kids and have a great time teaching them as well as watching them have fun. Respect and manners were highly stressed at all times.

As parents we need to keep in mind that we are always teachers when it concerns our children.





Fish? What are "Fish"?

ill make the call, if they quarantine some of our fish for 1/2 a year fine...  the Malawi exhibit at least needs to be re-stocked, and guys c'mon, how sweet would it be if u could go to the shedd and tell people "yea i gave em that fish".


i think it would be awesome

cant hurt to ask

girl picked up at bar:  oh wow u have alot of fishies in here, arent they supposed to be gold, like goldfish...  why arent these ones gold, oh that one is so ugly, why would u have more than one tank....  (she carried on for about 10 mins).

me:  please get out of my house.

I don't think the Shedd would do it for 1 reason. Quarantine. It is their policy that fish must be quarantined by them for something like 4-6 months, which presses them for space, this is before they hit the main exhibit.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

What a great way to advance the mission of the club at a broader scale. 

I don't know anybody, personally, over at the Shedd, but would be interesting in contributing to such an effort, if it has the support of others.


i know a guy on another forum that used to work there if this really goes somwhere i could contact him

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it. Pee on it and walk away.

Someone would probably have to call in and talk to the curator to see if it is even a possibility. Then it would probably have to be brought up to the board at a meeting.

Does anyone know anyone at the Shedd?
