JohnH created the topic: New Year's 'fishy' resolutions.
This rather follows on from the post of best and worst experiences of 2015 but since we always (well, nearly always) ask for everyone's New Year Resolutions - with emphasis on our hobby I thought this new year should really be no exception.

For myself I really (no, honestly) must get my fish room completed (some staging renovation required after a desperate water leak from one of the tanks in the top tier was left unresolved and the staging started to 'decompose'.
I also want to finish the 'ring main' from the air blower to feed all the tanks (using a higher output blower than the one I'm using now. - It's all renovated and is ready to go - all I have to do is get my brain in gear for long enough to start the job) - (but obviously not until the racking has been repaired).
I'm also planning a 'sort of' automated water change system, but this might have to wait until the other tasks are completed first.

As to hopes for 2016, I have several less-common species of fish which I am hoping I'll be able to coax into wishing to reproduce, but that's a most definite 'hope' rather than a 'plan'.

Now, to throw the topic open to our other members (and those who don't post as regularly - after all it's only a bit of fun, anyway).

John

p.s. Happy New Year to each and every one of you - thanks for sticking with us throughout the year - and to our recent 'new arrivals' Welcome along, and a Happy New Year to you also.

Oops, I just realised I've posted this a day early, it's not 2016 until tomorrow!
Oh well it can stay now - it'll give everyone a day to think of their replies.

Thanks for the generous words Robert - but, as I always need to point out, I really am only the person dealing with the 'peripheries' of the Forum - all real credit must unconditionally go to Darragh. He deals with all the proper Administration and without him the whole thing would have gone 'down the toilet' years ago.

Happy new year to all and thanks for all the help you have given me over the last few years back in this hobby (obsession as the wife calls it). My resolution is just to learn more and get arise to the point where it is thriving and not struggling with po4 issues!
Tho honestly it looks like it might be getting there finally!
I'll help out anyone where I can as always as well!
I'd like to change my canna tanks to slightly bigger ones! I have a couple of larger tanks that need a bit of tlc before they can be used.... so I'll have to get that done!

And other than that, get to meet some of the lads that have helped me so much over the last few years! I know we talk about it, but we really must make an effort to try make it a bi monthly meet up and talk somewhere
It is surprising what you will learn just by meeting more of the people on the forum

Happy new year to all. Hmmm do they have to be realistic? Get my tropical tank from the garage to the dinning room, wish me luck with the negotiations :P

Would like to replace my vision 180 as it is looking a bit the worse for wear and the aquabasis has run out of nutrients.
