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

Well done to seahorse.

Just so Seahorse Aquarium in Dublin doesn't have to blow their own trumpet, I thought I would do it for them.

Just reading through the March PFK magazine I saw that they won a few top spots in PFK recent poll of top shops.

They came first in ....
Marine retailer
Catfish retailer
Cichlid retailer
Oddball retailer ( but we all know how odd they are anyway, don't we! It must be on their application form if you apply for a job there!)

And runner up in.....
Retailer of the year. (Beaten by Charterhouse Aquatics)
Online retailer. (Beaten by Charterhouse Aquatics)
Shrimp retailer. (Beaten by Sharnbrook Shrimps)
Plant retailer. (Beaten by Emperor Tropicals)

They also came first in the regional category, with 2nd place going to Carrick Aquatics in co. Monaghan.

Well done to the team in Seahorse, for your hard work in our behalf, bringing us quality fish when we want them, outstanding customer service when it's needed, and putting up with us when we visit the shop even if we don't buy anything.
