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

As you may guess from the heading of this thread I have lost 2 of my fish today

I was sitting next to the tank watching toy story with my son when I heard the juwel filter get louder then stop, weird I thought so carried on watching the film, then it happened again and got worse and it spit out a cloud stuff, I jumped up and plugged out the filter and started to strip it down and see what's going on

To my horror when i pulled out the powerhead there was poor rustys fin sticking out of it i have no idea how he got in there as the lid was on the top and the top in above the water line, at this point i just pulled the whole filter box out just in case it happens again and put all the media from it into my new external and hope for the best, while pulling the sponges out i found one of my fire fish in there? again no idea how he got there or how long he was there

Bit of a shock that was but I'm rid of the big box in the tank now and it makes a huge difference to the look of it

Had a 10 inch rope fish climb into the little black cowl underneath the Juwel powerhead. He was dead, all coiled up.
