Hello From Tropical-Fish-Forums.com

Im the Owner/Admin of tropical-fish-forums.com we have a nice friendly little community going on, unlike many other such forums you might find today, we have no darma, fighting or better than you staff or members to give you a hassle. We are simply a group of fish keeping hobbyist, that enjoy getting together to discuss fish keeping, try to help the less experienced, and make all kinds of new friends.

I would especially love to see folks join us that have experience with aquarium plants or planted tanks, as we seem to be lacking there I would even entertain the idea of appointing a special Mod for that section as i have for my other section if you really know your stuff, and like to help others with your knowledge of planted tanks, just join the forum and contact Shadow Bass

Welcome!

I just looked at your site, I would visit there but the white letters on the blue background hurt my eyes.

Not being negative about your site other that the background/letter contrast I like it. It's just a hard combination for old eyes. That type of thing keeps me off several sites I'm sure I would enjoy.

The fish mouse pointer could be done away with. It would only make the site better.

Don't mean to be such a fussy old coot but, the background is also the problem. I apologize I should of just said make it grey & black like TPT.

It's probably not an issue for the younger viewers.

Hey you asked, I told you my honest opinion. It's your site an as long as your happy that all that counts. I'm guessing you're really aren't so happy as you are looking to build your viewership based on the threads you have started here.

This is the #1 website for Planted Tanks for a reason. Other sites would be wise to use TPT as a model. You might want to muzzle up the sarcasim a bit when people are honestly trying to help you out.

Good luck with your site.

You might want to increase the contrast between text and background on the home page. It's not pleasant to read.

What fun! I was banned from his Tropicalfishforums.com Fact is,it doesn't matter if he changes the contrast between the text and the background. Fact is, the place is a hopeless cause because he runs off everyone who doesn't agree with him. His loss...

Oscar, you are a Discus man and to planted? I want to know more. I do only BB with my Discus, but then I'm a breeder so I can't help but do it that way.
