    Current state of the hobby?

    Hello everyone. Havent had an aquarium for a few years now and was thinking of getting back in. The forum looks pretty dead. Did the conversation move to FaceBook or is the hobby just not very active in Atlantic Canada right now? I know Fredericton still has no LFS to speak us, just the the PetSmart which never seems to have anything decent for hardware or plants <sigh>.

    Forums in general are a dying breed. I do prefer forums over facebook myself. I think there still a decent amount of hobbyists in Atlantic Canada. There are a few stores in the maritimes. Atlantis in Charlottetown PEI, Riverscape in Moncton,1 fish 2 fish in Dartmouth NS, Aquarica in Bedford NS just to name a few freshwater stores that I can think of at 7AM.

    Been away for awhile. Whatever happened here. Used to be a very busy site? How can we get this back up and running?

    I would love for this to get back up and running. I still check it everyday for posts.

    I still like using the forum, just not on much is all. Also, there's a shop close to Fredericton called Some-Fin Tropical. I got yoyos and kuhlis, and almond leaves from them yesterday - great fish and nice large leaves. @sunsanvil - I'm in New Maryland - Some-Fin is outside of Chipman but has deliveries to Northside Fredericton for free pick ups. https://www.some-fintropical.com/

    Also - as far as getting the forum active again - advertise, advertise advertise. There's so many groups on facecrack. I'm on a few - but none of them are super active except for a few people who post regularly. It would be nice to get those folks over here.
