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

Narrow escapes

So what narrow escapes have you had recently?

Why do I ask?

Well I went away for a few days this week, so before I left I did water changes to my tropical and marine tanks.
When I change the water in the marine, I unplug both the heater and the pump, change the water and then plug them back in.
Unfortunately I didn't plug the heater all the way in, and so for 5 days it wasn't turned on.
When I got home I gave both tanks a quick look over and all looked ok!
It was only when I felt the temperature of the water in the marine rank and thought "that's cold" did I notice it was unplugged still!!
So for 5 days it hasn't been over 18 degrees, and probably dropped lower over night.

Lucky or what!
