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

endler with one eye

I have a small breeding tank with endlers in it and I have just noticed that one of the males now has only one eye, I havent noticed any aggression so I dont know how he lost it but he seems to be happy and active, is this something I should be concerned about? The tank has 3f and 2m endlers, a few molly fry and a small ancistrus.

Shouldn't be an issue health wise, but if you see anymore with eyes missing you know there's another fish bullying them. Or Alot of the time guppies sit on the bottom of the tank at night, and with your Ancistrus being active mostly at night it could be an explanation for the missing eye, Ancistrus are fairly fast movers at night rummaging around and with their rough skin its very plausable

the ancistrus just went in today but in fairness this is the first day i have noticed it and like i said he still seems happy and is eating so doesnt seem to be an issue as of yet
