I forgot my password
Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved it can be reset. To do this go to the login page and click I've forgotten my password. Follow the instructions and you should be back online in no time.
Can I change my username?
We generally discourage the switching of names, but if you feel strongly about changing your username, you can do it here. The message should contain your current username and the new username.
How do I post pictures in the forum?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts; however, there is no facility
at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore
you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible Web server.
Two sites that our members tend to use quite frequently are ImageStation.com
You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is
a publicly accessible server) nor images stored behind authentication
mechanisms, e.g. Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password protected
sites, etc. To display the image use the [img] tag feature when
posting your message. For more specific instructions, see here.

I can't get the video to play on my computer.
Most PC's will be able to view our movies. The streaming movies on this Web site are of high quality and are quite large in file size, being between 0.5 and 5 MB. Unless you have a high speed Internet connection like cable modem, satellite, or T1, you will need to allow them to download completely before trying to view them or you may be disappointed. If you can't view the movies at all, download the latest version of Windows Media Player. It's quick, easy and free. Click here.
Can I ask you a question about my fish?
Not directly. Please post any questions you have on our friendly discussion board. Our members are very knowledgeable and by posting your questions publicly, you can potentially receive more input from many perspectives. With thousands of members and hundreds of new posts being made daily, questions rarely go unanswered.
Can you recommend a place to buy fish/aquariums/filters?
No, but our members can. Please check out our Product and Retailer Reviews Section, where we have product detail information and reviews for nearly 2,000 aquatic products and cichlid retailers.
