Retirement and forum shutdown (17 Jan 2022)


John Howell who has managed the forum for years is getting on and wishes to retire from the role of managing it.
Over the years, he has managed the forum through good days and bad days and he has always been fair.
He has managed to bring his passion for fish keeping to the forum and keep it going for so long.

I wish to thank John for his hard work in keeping the forum going.

With John wishing to "retire" from the role of managing the forum and the forum receiving very little traffic, I think we must agree that forum has come to a natural conclusion and it's time to put it to rest.

I am proposing that the forum be made read-only from March 2022 onwards and that no new users or content be created. The website is still registered for several more years, so the content will still be accessible but no new topics or replies will be allowed.

If there is interest from the ITFS or other fish keeping clubs, we may redirect traffic to them or to a Facebook group but will not actively manage it.

I'd like to thank everyone over the years who helped with forum, posted a reply, started a new topic, ask a question and helped a newbie in fish keeping. And thank you to the sponsors who helped us along the away. Hopefully it made the hobby stronger.

I'd especially like to thank John Howell and Valerie Rousseau for all of their contributions, without them the forum would have never been has successful.

Thank you
Darragh Sherwin

Mixing Red Sea and DD Salt

08 Feb 2015 11:33 #1 by iknowkungfu
I managed to get myself a free full bucket of coral pro red sea salt off a colleague and since I was already using DD ocean salt I thought to get the benefits of both salts when I made up my water I mixed 1/2 of DD to 1/2 of Red Sea. I want to find out can you do this the dd salt is 10.5 alk and red sea had 11.5 and all other things are the same? Anyway I do my weekly small water changes and I noticed my zoas on the top rock dont open up fully all day the bottoms zoas or ok. Could this be a reaction of the two salt mixes in the one bucket or something else. All other corals are ok. Ps I have done larger water changes then I used to about double and also I have been increasing my salinity since my old refractor was broke and my new one read 1.22. thanks
