On behalf of the Forum I would firstly like to take this opportunity of wishing each and every one of you a Very Happy New Year and to thank those of you who have stuck with us through 2016.
It's been quite a 'challenging' year with several 'outages' etc but I'm pleased (and not a little relieved) that this all seems to be (fingers firmly crossed) behind us now.

As we tend to drag out this topic annually, I thought it would be interesting to hear members' plans (New Year Resolutions, perhaps?) for the coming year. Gunnered has already outlined his upcoming project - any more plans from the others among you?

Also, perhaps you could send in details of mistakes made, regrets etc, in 2016 - for myself I think the low point has to be the loss of more Fish Shops, we really do need more, not less, but financial constraints and the economic 'temperature' here really are hitting some shops hard.

One last thing I'd like to mention, the entries for the Photocompetition Rounds really are at an all-time low, please consider sending in some entries to make the exercise of running them more worthwhile.

Again A Happy New Year to you all, with Many Happy Returns.

John

New Years resolution......

Label my plugs.

Why do I guess each time which plug goes to the pump, only to unplug the lights and have to reset the timers on it.
Or unplug the heater on my marine tank, go away or a week, and come back to a tank with NOTHING wrong it it, apart from being a bit cold and nemo wrapped up in a scarf!

Label plugs people's.

I'd like to thank you for all the hard work you have put into the forum, John. Also thanks to Darragh for his part in making it possible by financing it. Sometimes running a forum can feel like a thankless task, but I'm sure everyone is grateful.
As for resolutions, my wife tells me that my resolution is to go on a diet and lose a lot of weight so I've decided on a diet of fruit. I've ordered in six 2L bottles of Orangeade and ten Terry's chocolate oranges and for a bit of a change, 5 1L bottles of wine :)
Happy New Year to you John and everyone else on the forum.

P.S. I'd also like to ask more people to submit to the competition, it's great fun, whether prizes are involved or not. Look on it as building a photographic record of your tanks/fish with the added bonus of sharing with the forum.

Well can i add my best wishes to everyone for the new year . My plans are to back to the pond this season and the magic of koi this been badly neglected for the last two years while getting the tanks up and running , something that was helped by the advice from the forum members . My high for the years was getting the new 350 litre coldwater tank with sump and the low was lossing so many fish in the first few months in it , thankfully all is good now . So thanks to all and good fishkeeping for 2017
