I'm just saying usually it's a newer member who comes on and brags about "it's working for me and I've had my tank up for two weeks now without a problem". They are not going to read this or care about others opinions, you know how this forum thing works by now. Just like its cool to keep Astronotus ocellatus in a goldfish bowl...

Or putting a Astronotus ocellatus in a 50g because that's what all the cool kids are doing now.

Ohh you and those Latin words... it's not that much to ask.. elaborate is all.. people love talking about themselves so much.. think they wouldn't mind sharing "useful" information. I post everything that happens in my tanks. Bad and bad. If it could save one person the trouble than I'll drink to that!

I've seen a lot of these 'empty' posts especially in the Cichlid discussion. A lot of times you'll see people post a thread titled 'Cichlid id' well that can mean literally thousands of fish. And then when you open up the thread its either a terribly worded and other wise hopelessly useless description or a photo of the fish darting through the tank at Mach 2 with a camera from a flip phone.

Hmm..... I'm special and I know it. Pink elephants are as cool as did you see the unicorn ??

Ok, all joking aside. I know what you're saying. That's why I wrote the thread a while back about expert newbies.

Ive ran into issues with none of my questions getting replies. I am not sure if I am just not posting in the right area or people just do not know the answers.

Good points from you all. At some point, it seemed that sites such as this one became more a place to just see your words on the internet rather than seriously helping others. I've stopped looking at many of the threads here because they either make no sense or there is no attempt by the OP to listen to sound advice.
The best advice I can offer is to NEVER impulse buy fish. Do your homework first! If you are buying fish from an "assorted...." tank, you better know what you are buying before you bring it home. While it may work in the assorted tank at the store, it might not work with YOUR assortment. There should never be threads " What fish is this that I just bought?" IMO
As for speaking fish names in Latin, that used to be more common amongst the "real" hobbyists. Common names can be regional but Latin names are universal ( until a whole bunch of fish and corals got reclassified ). I just don;t have it in me anymore to learn all the new names. And you can stick that in your Chaetodontoplus mesoleucus
