Just curious

Hi everyone! I am just curious why there isnt a seperate topic for goldfish as there is for cichlids? They are not tropical fish and I believe they deserve their due respect. Is there not a strong enough goldfish membership base/following? Thanks!!

Cichlid is pretty common and I guess a lot of people have a lot. Not a lot of people have problems with goldfish. (Just a guess!) only certain fish discussion out though no platy discussion or anything.

I think it would be a great to have a separate section for goldfish! Their needs vary from tropicals so why shouldn't there be a section just for them.

I'd have to disagree. There are a lot of people coming to this forum with incorrectly stocked goldfish tanks with health problems. I'm coming across multiple new threads daily.

Typically the divisions of the community are content driven. When a subject takes on a critical mass the site staff discusses breaking it off into its own section. The "build it and they will come" approach doesn't work well and leaves a lot of small sections that get underutilized.
