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

I have Saulosi Albinos, Pseudotropheus bright orange and blue and pseudotropheus fainzilberi all these all male i guess how to tell they are male or female and they look same to me so if they are male female would they breed each other
three of them has small white eggs on the bottom tail fin the orange one i don't know but look male to me as well so if i be able to change female can i keep all above type or has to be one type?
P.S. all above fish look same to me
and my male auratus make a nest in the cave etc... so what would be next?

three of them has small white eggs on the bottom tail fin , they are most definably males the reason for these is for the female to follow the male and fertilise the eggs . some pictures may help to see males and females.
They will cross breed i think yes if they look similar to each other i can easy happen with cichlids.
