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

Hi came across aquael 30 ltr shrimp tank. www.newlands.ie/aquael-shrimp-set-smart-...905546192590/83784/#

Thinking of lowtech shrimp tank, maybe some rocks in there too with moss etc. Anyone else come across this brand or suggest alternatives in approx similar size? Thanks a million!

Brought one of these from Gavin in newlands a good while back , used as a shrimp tank for a while , then a grow on tank for my guppy fry , now empty waiting on my angels to spawn and not eat the eggs . Incidenty talking of Newlands did you know that Micheal Davitt the owner passed away last thursday . Micheal ran Newlands for over 40 years , i believe he has other family members envolved with the bussiness . He was a true gentleman

I'm sorry to hear Michael passed away. Many years ago I breed dwarf lop eared rabbits and he always bought some off me along with orchard garden center in Celbrige. RIP.
