Super Sascha - 25,000 IDs and counting!

The Australasian Fishes project is thriving due to the enthusiastic input from many people. Thank you all, especially to those of you who are experts in a particular groups of fishes.
One person in particular however deserves special recognition. A quick glance at the identifications leader board shows the outstanding contribution made by Sascha Schulz. Since Australasian Fishes went online in October 2016, Sacha has made over 25,000 identifications.
In addition to playing a major role in the smooth running of Australasian Fishes, Sascha administers another iNaturalist project, Seaslugs of the World, where he has made over 2,500 identifications.
This is truly a monumental effort, and we are all very grateful for the time and expertise that Sascha brings to the project. Thank you Sascha! :)

Incredible work @sascha_schulz !
Your observations are just as great as your IDs
One of your most recent ones of P. semicirculatus is one of my favourite observations on the AF Project so far! :D https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/15098203

@sascha_schulz , Hi Sascha, Great work, you should be proud of all the Australasia Fishes contributors that you have helped. We take photos of something, which we have no idea what it is (we'll just me maybe) & you provide us with all this information that makes us go Wow that's cool & gives you more Incentive to get back in the water to see what else we can find. I have learnt so much while I was contributing. Thank-you.

On-ya Sascha.
I am one that has learned a great deal from Sascha, but still a babe in the woods/ocean.
