Retirement and forum shutdown (17 Jan 2022)

Hi,

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

I have taken my female Albino Krib from her usual home and placed her in quarantine as she is breathing a little heavy.....She is showing no other signs of illness at all except a little lethargy....She is eating fine as well.....She has been taken from a well established perfectly healthy tank where all other fish are in perfect health......Water quality is not an issue!

Im just wondering if anyone can suggest a course of treatment for her or if any body has any idea whats even wrong with her?

Tank is well oxygenated and there are no external signs of illness whatsoever....

In fact the quarantine tank has an airstone running 24/7 and she has not lost any of her colours...She looks perfectly healthy.....Just breathing a little heavy and slighlty lethargic....

Strange one!!.........could there be something stuck in it's gut?.....i'd add Epsom salt anyway as it can only do good no matter what the problem is.

Ger

EDIT: I just read back and you said it's eating fine so it's not gonna have something stuck in it's gut if that's the case........would still add Epsom salt though.
