I Must be one of the lucky ones. (well almost) I found this site on my first try after killing a tank full of fish. Everyone here is most helpful and I don't have enough Kudos to go around for everyone that deserves them. I have looked at 1 other site since joining here and it's like night and day. Here people try and explain what your doing wrong and how to fix it. Over there they just tell you "do it this way" with no explaination as to why.

Well, as usual I have to stick out like a sore thumb.

I belong to one other forum, cichlid-forum.com. There's a bunch of people there that are very knowledgable about cichlids. However, this is the forum I check at least 2 times a day, and most of my posts (including cichlid posts) I post here. I only post on the other site if there's a specific cichlid question that I asked here and need further information. That site tends to be a lot stricter in disscusion (they have no "Lounge" ) and some discussions can get downright rude, but I haven't had any problems there.

Now I know some are going to disagree with my next statement, but I feel strongly about this. IMHO, this should not be one's sole point of reference about fish. I have a couple books, a subscription to Aquarium Fish (thanks to my sister-in-law ), and the other web-sites I look at. Don't get me wrong, I love this site and it's the only website, forum, or otherwise that I believed in enough to send money to--but don't discount knowledge derived from other sources either .

Good Lord I am having trouble getting off the soapbox tonight!

*edit: didn't realize this was a s.w. thread

I agree that this site is a good general knowledge base, but sometimes you need to get down to a more technical forum at times.

I don't disagree with you at all. You should always consider multiple sources when making decisions or investigating... stuff
