This is the guide before adding/editing new pages here on Marine Wiki.

Template for Animal infoboxEdit

The Template:Animalbox should be added to all animal pages. If you cannot add this template then wait for someone else to add it, but try to remain consistent with adding this to those pages. This is the template you should insert:

Input example:

|phylum = 
|class = 
|order =

Video ToursEdit

Video Tours are an optional video that should only be added to Aquarium or Aquarium Exhibit Pages. These videos should be at least more than 30 seconds, but less than 2 hours long. They should mostly include content from the aquarium/aquarium exhibit you're editing.

For all Animal Pages, if possible, you should add somewhere the Conservation Status if known. These include:

Not Evaluated (NE)                      Endangered (EN)

Data Deficient (DD)                      Vulnerable (VN)

Least Concern (LC)                     Critically Endangered (CR)
