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

Do you still have any sword tails scorphonic ???

Absolutely do! :)

We've stopped the breeding of them now, or at least we've slowed the buggers down a bit...but there are quite a few fish there, may be able to spare a few...say 5 to 10 possibly.

what method are you using to slow down the breeding? Bar getting rid of the males...

A bit of a delay in my answer to this! Lessening the number of fish is simple...remove the thick vegetation that the fry live in...and they make a nice meal for the bigger fish.

We were ending up with too many fry in that tank so I moved out some males and females to our larger tank where no fry could possibly survive. We've kept a constant flow of fry in the smaller tank by doing this.
