About Me

  1. When did you join the forum? I joined in September of 2020. I remember always wanting to join ever since I found out it exsisted, but never knew the link. That was until Candi pasted it in a live stream chat! If you forget, you can visit your profile. Your profile will tell you the day you joined!
  2. Howdy y'all! I recently hidden some posts of mine, but I haven't figured a way to permanently delete them. For y'all asking why I hide these posts, it is either that there was misleading context, or I don't think it would be appropriate to stay on the forum. If anyone has access to delete all of my hidden posts, I'd appreciate it if you could reply to this thread to help me out here. Thanks!
  3. This forum went public on Bastille Day, 2020. I think it has been an amazing home for planted tank enthusiasts during a very difficult time. We should do something special to celebrate this community on 2021.07.14.
  4. Some days I can spend a lot of time on the Forum. I began to wonder how much time other people spend hanging out on this Forum?
  5. Congrats everyone! We passed 100,000 posts, as a community hitting the "Submit Post" button 100,000 times! 🥳
  6. This is a post to highlight some of the key functions of the forum and how to use them. If you have any questions about anything, be sure to check here first before posting a topic about it as there will likely be an answer for you here. Feel free to send me a message anytime (top right corner, mail icon) if you would like to ask a questions specifically. I am up to date with my inbox. Otherwise, see below for some walk-throughs. You may ask questions on this post as well if it's something that will benefit the forum community. This will be updated, so please ask away if there is anything you are confused about - I'll get it posted here for everyone's reference!
  7. Signatures can help provide context for posts. The right words can go a long way to helping others understand your perspective, and hobby focus. You can edit your signature in Account Settings/Signature, and create a nice minimal signature. https://forum.aquariumcoop.com/settings/signature/ Effective hobby signatures should be short, and not distracting. Please do not promote your brand, channel, site, store, etc. Try to avoid large images, long quotes, or memes. I personally prefer to just use text. Remember that many forum members check-in on their phones! If you link to your forum journal, please embed the link. Check the URL to make sure that you are linking to your journal, and not a specific comment in your journal. The vertical bar character ( | ), also known as the pipe, can be useful to separate items, such as journal links. It should be shift-backslash on most keyboards. Here are some signature examples: Young betta keeper, learning about plants in small tanks | Tank Journals Old-school hobbyist returning after time-off with a 120 gallon Angelfish community | Tank Journals Veteran hobbyist building 16-tank fish room for breeding | Fishroom Journals Chasing every color of Neocaridina | Shrimp Journals Keeper of this, that, and the other thing, with a focus on a specific technique | Tank Journals List of hobby things you value | Tank Journals All about ponds and outdoor life | Pond Journals Aspiring Nerm, ready to learn | Tank Journals
  8. Here is a short video I made about the C.A.R.E forum. It's not all encompassing but is a good guiding principle for this forum.
  9. We have changed the forum settings to only allow logins via email. This will not change your username, just your login sequence. Here is why we changed this setting: Administrator Notifications Display name logins are enabled Allowing users to log in with a display name can represent a security weakness for your community because display names are public information and malicious users may attempt to login to multiple accounts with common passwords until they find an account for which the passwords work. It is recommended that you only allow users to log in with their email address. We updated this setting. Please use your email address to login to this forum.
  10. I saw something by a users profile picture, we have ranks now? can someone explain how they work? thanks
  11. These forums have moderators, and over time we'll be adding to our current staff with volunteer moderators. The majority of moderation will happen automatically. Depending on the Rank of forum poster you are, is how much weight your actions will have. As an example, someone who has been around a very long time on the forum, when they flag a post as inappropriate. It will be removed from public view until a moderator can take a look at it. If you are new to the forum, your vote may count as One of 3 or 5 votes needed to perform the same action. Likewise to avoid trolling, someone who is a long in good standing member, would need more votes than someone who has been on the forum for a couple of days. This removes a lot of the day to day moderation tasks and places it in the hands of the forum users. As a group we can decide if something has gone too far off track. While I hope this is rare, there will always be disagreements that pop up and might get a bit heated and people need to cool down. You'll notice that upon sign up, users have to accept the terms of service now. Also we have guidelines on the menu for posters to follow. This will evolve over time and just because something isn't there, doesn't mean it won't be against the rules. At the time of creating this post, I realize I forgot to say nudity isn't tolerated. Clearly this would be against our rules but wasn't posted yet. Here are some of the Rank Levels, these can change if I need to adjust, also please don't "chase" these ranks by spamming comments. We have an active community with meaningful content.
  12. What are the most popular states for the freshwater aquarium hobby? If I were to guess I’d say Ohio
  13. Hey everyone, As you can see theres a new update on the forum! And I was wondering what some of it means: The hand thats over the profile picture in each post. And then when you hove over it with your mouse it says "Rank: Newbie 1/14" Theres also new badges if you click on your profile. Is this for the new club?
  14. @quirkylemon103 has asked how to use the blog feature of this forum. So, I thought I would create a how to guide. Step 1. Go to the blogs section of this forum Step 2. Click 'Create a new blog' then give your new blog a title, add tags, and finally add some initial content. Step 3. Now that you have a blog on the forum, add fresh content.
  15. I'm attempting to make the most helpful/commonly asked question videos we have done easy to access. I have located this video playlist towards the bottom of the main forum page. If you find any particularly helpful videos you want to link often, let me know and I'll put it there so that we can a library that's easy to grab from and post in threads to help people. We have to start the video, click the title, to open a new page to grab the url to share in a thread unless someone finds an easier/faster way.
  16. 🥰 I just want to thank everyone on the forum and especially Cody and his team at Aquarium Co-op for all of the advice, blog posts, etc. Your information is spot on and it's a wonderful thing to have a reliable place to come to.
  17. As part of our upcoming 2021 C.A.R.E. Forum Anniversary Celebration, aka NERM Day, we will be featuring forum member-authored articles! Yours truly is managing this project. The rest of our volunteer editors/coordinators are @Daniel @KaitieG @CorydorasEthan. Help us figure out what articles to post by answering a couple of questions in this poll. And get the word out! The more responses we get, the better we can feature the articles you want to see. Thank you! 😎
  18. Hey guys, I thought that an articles section on the forum would be a neat idea. Members would write their own articles on fish care, fish breeding, plant care, how-to DIY projects, stocking suggestions, and more. This articles section would allow forum members and visitors alike to easliy find the experiences of different fishkeepers here on a specific fish or project they are researching. This section would differ from the journals in "Photos, Videos, and Journals" section because journals track one's experiences, while the articles would simply be sharing the care and how-to's based on one's experiences. Do you guys think that this would be a good idea? If not, what could we do to achieve something similar? Thanks.
  19. Hello I was wondering if there would ever be a aquarium Co-Op app. I thought it would be nice to have one and I would definetly download it. Thanks
  20. In a recent discussion with @Brandy we both noticed that the 'Search' sometimes doesn't return a result. Brandy said: Maybe this there is room for improvement with the 'Search' feature, maybe not, but you never know until you ask. If there are other suggestions for making the forum more useful please reply to this thread with your suggestions.
  21. Hey C.A.R.E. Forum friends! Posting this, first of all, to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone here for being part of this forum! So many great posts and conversations so far from everyone and we're so happy to have you all here. Secondly, we will be regularly rewarding thoughtful posters and contributors with a care package (hence the name, get it?) of fun and useful stuff from Aquarium Co-Op. The first care package was sent to the following forum members as they were top contributors thus far in the forum: @Daniel @Bill Smith @MickS77 Congratulations to each of you! Other members, if you haven't yet checked out their content, please do!! In the future, we will be choosing winners based on other metrics as well, not simply number of posts - thoughtful and informative posts which will benefit the greater 🐟 community to name an example of what I'll be looking out for. Can't wait to see more great topics and conversations in the coming weeks. Feel free to reach out to me any time. - Lizzie
  22. The latest version of the forum released yesterday. Being that we are at the beginning of this forum, I thought it was best to get that upgrade out of the way. I have a few things to fix like the thumbnails for topics that I will get too as soon as support gets back to me. Thanks, Cory
  23. My name is Terrance but on here I’ve been going by Beardedbillygoat. I got my first tank at 11 it was a red eared slider and well my Mom could not deal with the feeder fish the LFS told her we needed to buy the turtle so he/she was returned and we got the 55 g and fancy gold fish black moors, ranchu and think there were a couple comets. Then we had a move and casualties and I ended up with koi - grew them from 1” to 12” in about 18 months and they got sold to a guy who was super stoaked as they were gorgeous - there were great Asian goldfish farms in Southern California where I grew up and they hooked us up with the buyer who had a gorgeous pond for them. I used the proceeds to grab 20 Mbuna I kept through high school and then was out of the hobby until age 27 when I got a 46 g bowfront with rainbows - praecox, boesmani, and Millenium reds along with bolivian rams and salt and pepper corys. Had another 55 with Mbuna. Those tanks went to a friend as I was living in Baltimore and moved to Oregon. I had tanks for shellies, platys, Brichardi and rainbows. I then moved and met my wife who was anti-fish tank - her brother had tanks and they “stank” as he did not do his maintenance. Well fast forward Jan 2020 and for My birthday she bought a Fluval Flex and well MTS hit hard - now have the Flex 15 (cherry shrimp and pseudomeugil luminatus), Fluval EBI (3 Amanos, 8 blue dream shrimp, 2 Japanese blue Endler males), 45 g high (festivum, black phantoms, cherry barbs, green neons, bronze corys, LF bn and calico pleco), 11 g bowl (nicknamed the sad bowl per wife, only plants and rams horn snails at present), both kids have tanks 10 g shellies tank with 4 similis and a female blue Hawaiian Moscow guppy, 20 H guppy tank (platinum galaxy tigers), and breeding projects in the garage with 2 - 5 g Endler colonies ( J-blue and Black Bar) and a 50 g tub with 5 Medaka Platinum white rice fish, white cloud minnows and blue dream shrimp. Also have a 30 g tote running as hospital qt tank with a regular pleco rescued froM a neighbor and 2 zebra danios.
  24. Saturday I went to do an update on an app when my phone informed me I was low on storage. This seemed odd as I dont do anything that takes up large amounts of storage. Iooked through some stored video I have saved and deleted a videos and pictures to try and free up some storage. Even after doing the above I was still getting low phone storage messages. Today I found the culprit, the aquarium Co-OP app I dont know how or why, but some how I had 19gigs of storage being used. I un installed the app and installed it again. Before and after usage...
  25. Hello everyone! Just wondering if anyone else is a teen on this forum as well. If so, what do you have going on in your tanks currently? I hope that I am not the only person who is under 18 and learning a lot! Happy fishkeeping!
