Kyle: Thank you for everything. You deserve more than a simple "thanks", so I hope you've been sufficiently compensated in other ways for your time, problem-solving efforts, and general frustrations
As you have read above, PetGuide.com has come to an agreement with Kyle and will now be the owners of PlantedTank.net.

My name is Adam, please feel free to ask questions in this section of the forum and I will do my best to answer any and all of them.

If you have any issues, feel free to discuss below. I hope you all enjoy this new chapter in PlantedTank.net life.
Thank you all for reading.
Adam, thank you for making the effort to make yourself known and offering a forum for questions.
I, and likely most other forum members, would like to know exactly what changes or additions, however small, that you plan to make to our beloved website. Clearly, there must be a financial incentive for acquiring a (relatively, considering the popularity of the hobby as a whole) popular site such as this, so I assume ad revenue is one of those incentives. Anything else? If so, what? Your finances are your concern, but how they affect "us" is ours as well.
This is probably evident if your corporation owns and runs a large number of websites, but we, the populace, will be kept happier if somebody is around to explain what's going on.
In any case, good luck, and I hope we will all benefit from the change in ownership and management.
