Hi Humblefish I'm glad I stumbled upon this I knew you had started a business a while back but didn't realize you had a full forum with it. I really liked talking back and forth on R2R so I had to sign up. Will be interested to see how your H202 experimenting is going as well. I hope all is well!

Just wanted to echo what everyone else has already said.... You as a resource are greatly missed on R2R. Information provided by you and a small handful of others (HotRocks, 4FirdFamily, BigG, probably forgetting few others) have been a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel and is honestly, is something worth its weight in gold if one is serious about the wellbeing/success of their tank and the inhabitants.

Like others I'm glad I was able to find this forum. Hopefully I can absorb and pass on at least a fraction of knowledge and experience, as unfortunately it seems a lot of reefers don't do enough diligence in research and just as many, spread misinformation out of ignorance...ah the golden age of YouTube (I feel like an old man yelling at the kids to get off my lawn) , where everyone is an "expert" .


Anyway, getting long winded here... Happy to be here and thank you for what you and few others have done and continue to do for this hobby.

PS. Don't tell my wife that half the medication in the med cabinet is for the fish... Haha.

Ever since R2R found out I was selling qt fish they deleted all my posts related to my website and Humblefish forums.
Then they told me to pay 300 dollars a month because I am considered a business.
When I told them I am a doctor by education and a businessman and I do this to help




fellow hobbyists and not for money they blocked me from PM and sale forums.
After that someone asked me to help them with cycling issues and asked me to email. R2r deleted my email address so no one could contact me.
List can go on.
300 a month is crazy. I get that if you are selling, they consider you a business but forcing you to pay 300 and blocking your pm is borderline bullying.

It’s a bit ironic that on R2R in a thread about vendors deleting posts because they didn’t like the comments, my posts were deleted because I asked the rev why he thought atheism was “bad for the community” (a response to his his own statement).
I got in trouble for posting similar comments in the same thread. :p

The decision I still don't get is to ban all discussion of coronavirus. :confused: I think the idea is to keep everything positive, but how do you avoid talking about the 800-pound gorilla in the room? Over on RC there's a mod who will photoshop a mask over your avatar: Virus Avatars

I guess trying to infuse humor into a bad situation...

Guys don't talk about Coronavirus....

Also, goes and starts multiple threads on subjects having to do with the coronavirus....

I guess I just sometimes don't understand the big-brother culture of the forum. The forum is there for discussion, most of us are adults, at least by legal definition, so...let us be able to have a discussion. Now, I also understand that on the internet, some adults tend to act like children. When that happens that's when a mod should step in; not taking a shotgun approach or straight up banning discussion because they do no conform to your point of view/belief. I guess that's why I don't go into general/lounge etc. type sections of R2R.

Anyway, I'm gonna go get off my soapbox, air getting a little thin up here haha.

Before this latest incident, I was spending most of my time in the lounge. Posting pics of the kittens & whatnot. :p

A simple solution to this never-ending dilemma is to just eliminate the lounge and say only talk about aquarium related stuff on R2R. I personally enjoy socializing online with people who share a common interest. Even if we disagree about something.
