A 'plea for help'.

I just received this message on the Club's facebook page from a young lady in Co. Limerick...

Hi, I'm looking for advise on what to do with a few tropical fish I have. Unfortunately I'm looking to get rid of them as life at home has become too busy for us to properly care for them. I will be starting college in September and therefore won't be around home as much & both my parents work full time. Is there any place I can give them to that you know of?

After I replied asking her confirmation of location and fish available she replied

Yeah I'm living out the country. I'm about 20mins from Tipperary town & 20 mins from Mitchelstown too. There is a tropical gold fish 4-5 tetras and a golden loach. Thanks for your help!

So, if there's anyone 'out West' who could help - and get a few free fish into the bargain - please let me know and I'll pass on your reply.

Hardly a 'hive of activity' but here it is:

Would it be better having a group on Facebook rather than a page ???

I love the forum , mainly because everyone on here are true fishkeepers that are only too willing to help others out . None of us know it all but between us we know a hell of a lot

Surely, Eric, while the Forum exists is there really a need for a facebook group?

While I would agree that facebook has its uses, but can never compete with the Forum in my humble opinion.
With the Forum one can trawl right back to when it was first started and - believe me - there is a mine of information in the archives - this isn't possible with facebook.
But the option is open for you to start a facebook group of your own, or join one of the plethora of groups already there in existence.

I just thought if you wanted more activity on the "page" it would get it if it was a "group" that was all.
Obviously picked you up wrong

Not at all, perhaps we both misinterpreted each other's posts.
No harm done.
