Show Notes
Tropical fish keeper's, it's time to make the aquarium hobby great again! At one point in time, about 9 to 10 years ago the tropical fish keeping hobby was such a big, loved, huge community where fish keeper's got along, talked about tropical fish, and had fun. I think one of the reasons why the hobby has changed is social media and online tropical fish forums and groups. Back in the day, you were able to get out and talk to fish keeper's face to face. One of the things that really pushed my buttons is seeing experienced fish keeper's bashing the beginners in this hobby. Recently, I was on a Facebook group and saw a bunch of fish keepers attacking a beginner who had a question and NOT ONE OF THEM HELPED him. Seeing that, made me think........ HOW DO WE MAKE THE FISH HOBBY GREAT AGAIN??? WE NEED TO STOP BEING OUR SELVES ON PEDESTALS AND UNDERSTAND WE ARE ALIKE WE ALL LOVE TROPICAL FISH! I HATE SEEING FISH KEEPERS LIKE MYSELF BEING BASHED, FLAMED, AND INSULTED ONLINE AND I LET LOOSE MY THOUGHTS. Hopefully, this show will shine light on this topic. FISH KEEPER'S, LET'S BE FRIENDLY AND RESPECT EACH OTHER. AFTER ALL, WHETHER YOU AGREE OR NOT, WE ALL LOVE TROPICAL FISH. Planned for the Show: ~ Message to All fish keepers ~ How to make the Aquarium Hobby Great Again Enjoy the show!
