“Pet tropical fish.”

Mohd f.
6/23/19

As a beginner, you want to choose the tropical fish that give you the best chance of success with your home aquarium. There is a lot to learn for the fish keeper who is just starting out, and picking fish that are fun and easy to care for is important.

“Unethical Practices”

Amy H.
1/5/20

This forum had a contest for "Tank of the Year", which I won, and they have made no attempts to give me the prize that I won - a 50.00 gift card. I was "blocked" from using the forum because my views, as a woman, were different (and deemed challenging to) the primary male voices that ruled the forum. If I asked that these males describe why they suggested a particular method of treatment for fish or why they recommended a certain view I was called "combative". It was outrageous that the forum protected the rights of these males to give their opinions and shut down any questions from others of explanation. Ultimately, I was blocked from using the forum for giving advice that was counter to this largely male voice and/or for asking why they were making a recommendation. After being blocked from using the forum they put up my tank for the vote in their contest for tank of the year. Which I won. They have made no moves to give me the prize, nor can I contact them to claim it. If they had no intention to give me the prize, why was it put up for a vote? This forum is unethical; and, it is an echo chamber for a handful of males to spout their opinions without interruption. Stay away!
