Retirement and forum shutdown (17 Jan 2022)

Hi,

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

Started out (second time round) with a jewel 60 litre! Great little tank, the father in law is using it now!!!!
Then upgraded to a dirt cheap trigon 190! Then got a trigon 350 and a couple of spurious tanks along the way now I've 4 running and another 4 lying around the place! Probably enough filters to start myself a shop and make myself a fortune lol

There's always a few bargains floating around here! Normally cause the wallet monsters are on our case to offload a few bits!

Very true the only thing about second hand tanks is most do have wear and tear scrapes on them, if I had the room I'd upgrade for now this will have to do
