The CARE Forum Anniversary Celebration is coming soon!

Recommended Posts


The C.A.R.E. forum is turning 1 on July 14!

And we've put together some events to celebrate!

You can look forward to these events during the week of July 14, which we're lovingly calling "NERM week." Instructions about how to participate will appear soon all around the forum. Search for the tags "nerm week" and "nerm week 2021" to find all the events, or follow this topic, since we'll be adding links in the comments.

There should be something for everyone. We hope you'll join us!

Leading up to NERM week:

  • Meme Contest: Nominations open from June 30-July 6. Categories include Funniest (L.O.L.), I Resemble That (Too real), Most Liked Meme, Sickest Burn, and Want to Taco 'Bout It (Favorite Cory Meme). Vote for your favorites July 7-12.
  • Forum Member Articles: Write and post (and/or submit for official review) articles about fish-keeping! We're looking for articles in the following categories: Tips & Tutorials, Personal Narrative, Care Guide, and Aquarium Science@Anita is our amazing Managing Editor who's helping us gather our collective knowledge.
