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

bio home filter media

Also found the Pond Guru and his raving about this media. I'm setting up a new 300 litre freshwater tank so will have the Fluval FX4 external, looks like from his videos I need 3kgs of media along with the foams. The price seems steep mostly down to shipping at almost 38 euros makes the whole thing 100 euros or as good as.

Not sure yet if it's worth the upgrade. Any votes?

Hi , Dave . I have been using bio home ultimate for a few years now in my pond trickle tower in my canister filters on my tropicsl tank and in the sump on my cold water tank . I normally contact Richard the pond guru as his postage costs are cheaper than ebay. The media is expensive but you get what you pay for , certainly i would consider it the best media on the market
