  • We have a bunch of new items to go over that we have recent added, changed, or modified in their current state. We list below some of the high level changes, and are even going to show you some of the planned changes that we are currently either exploring as options, in the work of modifying/creating, or have on the to-do list once some other items get progressed more.

    • We have moved to a new hosting provider, which will allow for us to do far more unique, and creative things. Additionally, this new hosting provider decreased the time it takes to load any content that we are serving by 93.92%! Due to the way that we had to migrate and use newer software, the following must be noted:
      • Shoutbox entries have been lost as a result as the data was stored in a different method, and wouldn't allow for us to nicely migrate it over.
      • Shops have been lost as a result, therefore we are starting to build them over from scratch.
      • Awards have been lost due to them not converting over (we

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Decorations?.

    Love having rocks, shells and some artificial structures in my tanks. Never understood why some people prefer to have an empty tank that is void of an environment. Fish do get bored and can get afraid. Having stuff in there helps with easing them to…

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Do you run CO2 in your planted tanks?.

    Injecting CO2 sounds like it could be potentially an issue, atleast with me in the past 15 years. I've only recently had the opportunity to not have to aggressively check equipment. Though, if those living with me end up touching stuff without my being…

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Have you had fish spawn by themselves?.

    Nope. Never got to that stage in the process. Wish I did though, as it would be a fun learning experience to have fish hatch in the tank environment.

  • I would take a gander that it probably would have to do with the difficulty in getting and maintaining the fish. It is a pretty costly endeavor to keep up salt water fish healthy and happy.

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Fake coral vs real coral.

    I personally would use the fake coral, as I don't want to be tending the tank frequently to keep that alive, as well as keeping the fish healthy and fed well. If I had the opportunity that would allow me to have real coral, I'd probably start out small,…

  • I do know that people tend to try to help others, with what has worked for them (or others) in the past, but sometimes, the very thing that would be a good thing for one, could very well go bad for another. I would rather get a fish vet to help, than to…

  • I would recommend in the future, to double check the information that is provided by people. Not everyone has proper information on how to fix in tank issues. Salt can help, but so can other appropriate things that can be added to the tank. Really, it…

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Breeders stock illnesses.

    I know for most animals, they tend to put strict breeding controls on verified breeders. It might be that they want to cut corners, due to the supply of fish available, when people are less able to go out and seek replacement fish. When breeding stock…

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Who takes care of your tank when your gone.

    Generally I am not gone long enough to have someone watch over the fish for more than the day. Usually is just the immediate family, when I do leave for stuff for more than a day or two.

  • Joshua Farrell Replied to the thread Why does everything cost more with saltwater.

    As mentioned, salt tends to break things down quicker, due to it being corrosive in nature. The higher the salt content, the harder it is to maintain good equipment. Wouldn't want your equipment breaking down fast, now would you? Plus having to spend the…
