“Pet tropical fish.”

Mohd f.

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.

“Don't even think to join...”

I am not that kind of person that usually write reviews... actually i think is my very first and i usually live and let live... but i decided to spend few minutes here and write few lines. I joined the website as i had and still have an issue in my tank, and i asked for help in terms of remedies or advices in that direction. So i did an accurate description ( as much i could) of the tank because before you do something in an ecosystem like an aquarium there are so many things to consider and keep in mind. I must admit that promptly... something like half hour after i posted my thread i had my first reply which the user kindly asked to a "Fish Guru" a Gentleman from Australia for help which is arrived something like half hour again from the previous reply. I want to thank you those 2 users here now especially Mr Colin which gave me a detailed description about what can be and remedies to sort it out my only issue so far. I did reply also to the "FishGuru" to make sure i understood clearly his previous message as his "help" involves the use of aquarium salt so i was making sure myself about dosage. But at this point and here it started to go down the hill everything. Some users which is not the right way to describe them rather than time wasters, start some funny conversations inside my thread, just criticising the stock i do have, using sort of copy and paste informations from the web and I felt surrounded from a group of jealous people and this is including the " moderators ". I tried to explain them that that kind of behaviour was not needed and to stop those kind of unappropriated comments because they didn't have nothing to do with my original post which was titled "help me please" but instead of help i found myself in the middle of a western saloon and guess what I have been banned! The best part is coming now... joining "the club " i was thinking that i was meeting people who share the same passion and willing to help... which i found in the first 2 users and Thank You again... rather than that people acted like enemies, no sense replies and criticising. But a big thank you it goes also to the great moderators which they banned me from the site so they saved my time to delete my account.

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!
