New cichlid trade system available

We have a new cichlid trade system for the Cichlid Room Companion. It has now gone through a pre-operational testing phase with very good results and I have just released it to the public. It has been developed as a new utility for subscribers and sponsors (but fellows and curators may use it too). You can now advertise your cichlids for sale or those you want to find to buy. All you have to do is register in the Cichlid Room Companion trade system. The cichlid trade system works in conjunction with the catalog. Up to ten simultaneous ads with a life of fifteen days can be kept active at any time. Listings can be consulted via a master list Master List) or in each of the cichlid species profiles, where they will show as a tab when trade offers are available for them. There is also a RSS feed for the trade offers master list. Traders establish where they live and where they ship to. Contact with the buyer/seller is safe as the e-mail addresses are not disclosed.

You can now sign up the system (even if you are not offering anything) from the Master List. I hope this new utility can be of use to interested people.
