I wanna say the same thing as Tank. Thanks. This is my first fish sight/forum that i have ever joined and it has helped me alot and it has also given me something to do when i have nothing to do. I just joined Monsterfishkeepers.com recently and that sight is much larger and all but there are quite a few people in that sight that are jerks. Its not a bad sight and i like it but there are a bunch of rude people. I have found no jerks here, i have had disogreements but those were solved. I intend to keep in touch with this sight for a long time. Everyone here is kind and most are caring. I also want to give a special thanks to Purrbox, Fluff, Ziggy, and Zagz since those are the people that have helped me the most. Another special Thanks to all you Mods, Admins, etc... for sticking with the sight and always keeping your cool. And thanks to everyone for being polite and patient. And also just for an example on how this sight has helped me is the fact that i now have 60 black mollie fry and about to have more Thanks everyone. I love this sight. Its great. And is very informative. THANKS EVERYONE!!!
(wow when your a slow typer it takes forever to type that post)

Since this seems to be the place for group hugs...

I ALSO want to say "thanks!" to all those folks that helped me, and don't realize it. Once I realized that a saltwater tank was going to be in my future, I searched and searched the internet for information. I found a lot of other bigger more popular forums, but wading through all the flames and BS to find REAL information took a long time. And then I came here.

I poured over this site for months before even buying a single piece of equipment. I read about everyone's different ideas on reef keeping and tried to discern the "right" way to do things. (I eventually figured out that there was no "right" way - but some ways were better than others!) When I found a person whose opinion I seemed to agree with, I poured over all their previous posts. Some of those folks have moved on, and some are still here. I thank them all.

I can say with complete certainty that if I would not have found this site, my tank would not be as successful as it is. I consider "my" tank a "group effort" and like Tank, I want to thank everyone for making it possible!

Sniff, sniff... whimper, whimper.

(And no... I haven't been drinking. Well... not THAT much.)

+1 more. Tank said is all. I can honestly say if I had not had the help and support form the ones who stand out the most as the "great helpers" in AA I would have called it quits long ago. I have had my share of problems and disease in my tanks , thought I knew more than I did and was never made to feel stupid for the mistakes I made, I took the great advice and made my changes and solutions and now I'm light years from where I was 4 months ago.
Thank You, Thank You,Thank You .

PS:There is a little 6 year old girl in this house that is much happier because of you all too. Flames, Bubbles, Miley, Lilly, PJs , and Pajamas are alive and well in a hyposalinity Ich treatment, currently Ich free with 3 weeks left in QT.

*Hic* *Hic*

Seriously though, I feel exactly the same way. If I hadn't found this site, I'd have given up on fishkeeping altogether. I owe a lot to many here.

Kurt, you hit the nail on the head! I looked through other forums and found flaming and BS and "noob" stuff annoying and didn't want to join them...heck, everyone is new at some point!
Thanks again!

Add 1 more. I love this site because no one is trying to sell you anything. In the past you relied on the LFS to help you and of course they were tryong to make a buck, thats their job. Here, everyone is giving advice to the betterment of the hobby and your tank.
