Just wondering how many different fish related forums people belong. I am a member of Cichlid Forum (my first home :D ), simplydiscus.com, discusforums.com, plantedtank.net, troph.com, reefcentral.com, and nano-reef.com. Wow! That's seven!!! :eek: I don't really visit trophs.com and nano-reef.com, but regular visitors to 5 other sites.

What are they all? Maybe we will find some new ones? I belong to:
cichlid-forum
nycichlids
cynotilapia
shelldwellers
plantgeeks
planetcatfish

Oh, I voted wrong, I'm in more than I said. I'm also on a couple of fish mailing lists.

1. Cichlid-forum
2. The planted tank
3. GPAS.org
4. Endlers r us

I've been pretty active at the first three, Endler's R Us doesn't seem to get much traffic and since the site got hacked about 2 weeks after I joined there isn't much of an archive to keep me entertained.

Google finds a lot of stuff on The Krib, I read it about as much as I read stuff on any other site, but I haven't joined.

Yes, list them. And PsYcHoTiC MaDmAn, I'd like to try a fish photography site because my aquatic photo skills are a source of embarrassment to me.

TFG, yes, I do remember the shirt on discusforums.com. I think you forgot to list monsterfishrescue.com. :D

As your interests expands overtime in different fish areas, you join more forums. As the TFG lists, there is a forum for loaches as well, which hate the members on this site who keep clown loaches with their Africans. :lol: I am not a member there, but browse the site once in a while. Also, I do visit planetcatfish once in a bluemoon to read up on few cat fish I may want to add to my tank.

I should go check out the betta forum to see how I can keep my betta in my discus tank live long. :)

Ok, look all of you! Just repeat... there are NO other forums other than C-F... they are just figments of your imagination and really... I'm surprised if you still think you're actually typing on any of the "others"... we need to check your doses of Prozium!

:lol:

kidding... of course!

Do we count the forums that made us sign up to view photos? :wink:

Interesting thread. I frequently visit another general fish forum. There, whenever someone posts a link to another fishie site, the long-timers go ballistic!!

In their defense there is an understood netiquette rule that you when pointing people towards a different site it "should" be either for a topic that the current forum isn't intended for.

It's just a guideline on how to be respectful to anyone who does hang around on the board you are on.

E.g. here on C-F, recommendations for plantedtank.net or planetcatfish will be received well...

if you pointed someone to go to a competing cichlid site, well... that could seem rude to anyone who does spend time answering cichlid questions to the best of their ability on this one.

Once in a while, I might point someone to a species specific or lake specific site about cichlids like simplydiscus.com but I use the other forum as more of a supporting link as opposed to saying go join that forum for answers.

It's my attempt to be polite to all! :thumb:
