  2. This forum went live to the public on July 14, 2020. To celebrate this forum members have come together to put on events during the week of July 14, 2021. This thread will be a part of those events. Starting on Monday, July 12, 2021 and continuing through Saturday, July 17, 2021 I encourage you to post a video to this thread. Over the past 12 months many of us have found the hobby of fishkeeping and in turn this forum or have been Co-Op fans from way back and were just as excited when it launched. Regardless of your time in the hobby this forum came at the right time for all of us. What a year it has been. I have found a home on this forum and a family in it's members and I would like to express my respect and gratitude to some of them personally. By no means should you feel unimportant or left out if you are not mentioned. The goal of these videos will be to show your gratitude to other members in a more personal format. Text and reactions are great, but a video where we can all hear your words in your own voice would help bridge the gap of the online world into the real one. Guidelines/Suggestions for Videos - So we can't upload videos directly from devices to the forum. Although we can upload from devices to YouTube and then post links to those videos on the forum. It's not that hard. I had never done it until I was on the forum. Just follow the tutorial below. - You don't have to appear in your video if you don't want to, but as long as we can hear your voice or that you make it personal then that is fine. - You can record your screen on windows by pressing windows+G then you can pull up forum profiles of people you want to thank. Or alternatively you could just record your computer screen with a cell phone. Or do it however you want to. Be as creative as you want. Those are just suggestions. - Thank whoever you want. Someone help you out with a problem, make you laugh with a meme, or just have interesting content? Give them a shout out. - I feel like there should be a time limit, but nah. It's your video for the people you want to thank. Although depending on the number of submissions it might take a while to watch them all, so just be mindful of that. - I also feel like there should be a limit on people you can thank to go along with the time limit, so I'm going to suggest 12 or less. Again, it's your video so do what you want. If you just want to thank one person or fifty who am I to tell you otherwise. - Tag the people that you are thanking in your submission, so you are sure that they will see it. - Review the Forum Guidelines and be sure to follow them in your video. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

  13. As part of the upcoming C.A.R.E. Forum Anniversary on July 14, this thread is dedicated to articles written by our very own forum members! In order to include as many members as possible—from newbie writers to experienced wordsmiths—we will be accepting three types of Forum Member Article (FMA): Self-Posted Article (SPA): an article written and self-posted by a forum member. SPAs have not been reviewed by an editor. Reviewed Article (RA): an article written by a forum member that has been reviewed by an editor. RAs have been reviewed for basic grammar and style only. RAs are self-posted by the author. Sticky Article (SA): an article written by a forum member that has passed editorial review and final approval. SAs are showcase pieces that are reviewed for grammar, style, and quality. Following final approval, SAs are uploaded as a sticky post by the thread administrator. Our FMAs will be similar in layout and writing style to the Aquarium Co-Op blog, with perhaps the exception of Aquarium Science articles. Review a few blog posts to become familiar with this writing style and article layout. To achieve a consistent look across all articles, we ask that all authors use the following writing tools: FMA Writer Guidelines — instructions on how to write the content FMA Template — models the layout, photo credits, and citations To minimize clutter and keep FMAs easily searchable, please do not post comments, discussions, or questions to this FMA thread.

  14. The forum opened to members on July 14, 2021. But before a week before that, Cory and small crew were testing and building content. I am pretty sure this was the first post, and of course it was Memes! You can tell this was a really early post, because you could give still Cory reactions So that one above from Kevin Green is half of all of Cory's reactions.
  15. Fish Taco Party Thread! Happy NERM day! (If you’re seeing this post and it’s not Wednesday yet, sorry—I wanted to get it up before I went to bed! 😄 ) Today, to celebrate the CARE forum turning 1 year old, and in honor of our fearless leader @Cory, feed your fish a “taco!” Post the video or pictures here so we can all appreciate the feast. (Fair warning—we may appreciate your home-made tacos more than your fish. 😜) For some taco-making tips, and to read about my first failed attempt at this endeavor, see this post here. Happy Anniversary, CARE forum! 🎉
  16. In honor of the CARE forum's 1st anniversary, let's give our fish a treat! And what better treat could there be for a nerm's fish than a taco? 😃 The purpose of this post is to encourage you to make your fish a fish-appropriate taco, give it to them on NERM Day (July 14), and upload a picture or video to a thread I have yet to create. This is a great way to celebrate NERM day if you're not able to make it to your LFS wearing Aquarium Co-op gear, or if you're not interested in stuffing your own belly with tacos. If you already know how to make fish-appropriate tacos, then you needn't read any further. See you on NERM day! 😄 If you're looking for some culinary help, however, keep reading and you can learn from my first attempt at cooking for my swimmy friends. I decided to do an experiment to see if fish prefer hard shell vs soft shell tacos. (Actually I was just trying to figure out if they liked any tacos, but let's pretend.) Hard shell tacos were made with zucchini shells: Soft shell tacos were made with seaweed: Fillings included any fish food I had lying around. I tried two different kinds of "glue": powdered chia seeds and repashy. I even added a little garlic powder to the "glue." Fish are supposed to like that, right? And oh yeah, I also included rocks. Because I was trying to get the tacos to sink. (Spoiler: I should have used more rocks.) I stuffed my tacos with layers of glue and food. It was quite fun! In the end they looked pretty nice. Especially with some spirulina powder decoratively sprinkled over the top. 😘👌 My husband walked by, looked at the results of my labor, and said, "If only the fish would appreciate this." Hopefully I would prove him wrong in just a few minutes! Feeding time came and unfortunately the tacos didn't sink. Should have used more rocks. Or bigger rocks. Or bought a veggie clip like I've been meaning to for about a year. So I had to tie the tacos to a plastic tray that came with my breeder box, and put rocks on top of the tray. I think this made the tacos look a little scary. At any rate, I tried to encourage the fish to give them a try. I didn't offer any of their regular food. And then I sat in front of the tank, got out my phone, and waited. And waited. It occurred to me that I feed my fish really well every day, and maybe I should have fasted them before trying this. Because obviously they would have appreciated that. 😛 Finally the biggest pleco came and checked out the spread. She eventually figured out the food was on the tray, not around the tray or under the tray or even the tray itself. She took a taste of the soft shell taco and immediately swam away. Bleh. Okay, so she doesn't like seaweed. Eventually she figured out how to nose her way inside the soft taco and rummage around. She certainly seemed to like the filling, and I even saw her pull a long zucchini sliver out of it. But it soon got away from her and went floating up into the water column, where the gouramis totally avoided it. Any time a glob of "glue" came floating out of a taco--I think this was the chia seed version--the tetras nabbed it. I counted that as a moderate success. The loaches, who I was sure would find the tacos and devour them, had no interest in swimming over the tray. My husband came by. "Maybe the tray smells weird," he said in an attempt to be comforting. Eventually I gave the top-dwellers some of there most boring pellets and walked away. A watched pot never boils, right? Later I came by and saw one of the otos had found the tacos! And it looked like someone had picked away at the inside. The soft shell tacos looked relatively untouched and rather mushy. I came back hours later, late at night when the lights had been off for a long time. You can probably guess who was eating the tacos now. It was dark, so I didn't get a picture, but I'm sure you can imagine the writhing mass that I ended up lifting out of the tank. It was a great way to get rid of about 500 Malaysian trumpet snails, if nothing else. Lessons I learned: My fish prefer hard shell tacos. Use more rocks in the taco itself unless you're feeding top-dwellers and want it to float. Do not use a strange tray. Make the taco more open-face so the yummy insides are accessible. Like a food boat instead of a food pocket. This shape should be easier to carve out of a vegetable anyway. To give yourself the best chance of success, fast them a day ahead of time. You can make a fish a taco, but you can't make him eat. Best of luck to you.

  19. In the spirit of our nearly universal love for tacos, and friendly competition, welcome to the opening sign ups for the first annual Taco Eating Contest. If you wish to enter simply include in a post below "I am in it to win it!" and your official entry into the contest will be noted. This thread is for sign ups and pre-contest discussion. The rules and guidelines for the contest are below. - Because they are wide spread Taco Bell crunchy tacos will be the "standard" for acceptable tacos allowed. Other options and home mades will be allowed but they must be very similar in size and composition to be counted. Soft tacos will be accepted but in the event of a tie or discrepancy preference will be given to the crunchy taco eater. - I will create an official entry thread where at minimum a before and after photo must be posted showing pre-consumption and one showing the aftermath. This is an on your honor contest that lives on the integrity of the forum members and the before and after photo will generally be accepted. If something seems off about your entry more "proof" may be requested which may include more photos. The only guaranteed proof is a full video which you can record if you wish and provide if needed but it should not be necessary. - The goal is to eat the most tacos in one sitting. A sitting will be defined as a maximum of 1 hour. - The entry thread will be created at the beginning of NERM week (July 12th) with final submissions being accepted on July 16th and the winner will be crowned on the 17th. - I may amend rules as the contest nears and in the event of any gray areas I will make the required decisions or lean on the moderators for guidance. And what would a contest be without a prize! The crowned winner will be mailed at no expense a one of a kind taco champ trophy 3D printed in Coop green! I quickly made this in CAD and 3D printed it. It's not perfect but it is unique and will be your bragging rights for the year.
