It is! And thank you Kevin for your contribution in the creation of a place that I feel I can come to for knowledge and feeback.


I do have some feedback and as not to offend long time veterans of this site but I think we/you have to ask the question. Do you/we want this to be an exclusive club only to cater to long term contributors and members? .

Or do you/we want this to be a place of constant learning and where ANYONE  can come and ask the newbist of questions and not get told constantly to use the search feature and get reprimanded for asking a question that has been asked 10k times. I get it for you that have been here a while that it gets old, tired and played out.

But new members are the life blood of any forum and I see how this site once thrived but if new members aren't coddled and made to feel at ease here, it will die.

I dont want that. I have found that in my limited time here, ya'll have been good to me and I respect and am appreciative for it. This is for me a place where I can come and read posts and dive into topics and learn. And it should live on this way for everybody.

Just my opinion.

I appreciate your input jcarson702, and I do agree. I am looking into what I can do, to bring this back to live. I'll keep you updated and you'll probably notice fairly quickly ;)

Cheers!!

It has always been the simplest site to navigate in my opinion. It was a welcoming and informative place for me..  I have got my tank to the point of done. Its half of a  room, and the fish seem to be getting along well. I do understand that fishkeeping, like any hobby, has highs and lows. With all life has on my plate, I am fortunate that my 1210 gallon system is close to self sufficient. I do the weekly 200 gallon water change without hardly even watching it, in an hour. My marathon training soaks up about 15ish hours a week, and work is about to be 7 days a week again. And Im a motorcycle addict, that recently got a new ride to customize. So I mentioned to Yanks, this is a peaceful and occasional decompression place.
Making memories to look forward to..

No matter how many times you wash a bird it will still smell fowl..
