I plan on setting up a "Donate here" option when I get the site upgraded. Help Ryan offset the cost.

Any money donated would go to offset site cost. My time here is, and will always be, free. Which is pretty amazing. The work I did yesterday was $100 per hour work if you were paying someone to do it. :think:

And it was a pain in the @ss. :blink: It's difficult to work on a crashing site. You can't stay connected long enough to make progress and when you are connected it takes forever to get commands to execute.

Oscarfish.Com has been in continual, non-interrupted existence since 1999. Not many sites can make that claim. 1999 was still the early days of the Internet. It's not going away under my watch. I like to think that we have had some level of participation in advancing the knowledge of fish keeping, eliminating some of the harmful old school myths that remain in print (in books).... and that a few fish have lived a better life because of information available here. :thumbs:

Nitrates used to be considered "harmless". Now we know better. "Old Water" used to be deemed to have some special quality. "20% per month water changes" are now known to be vastly insufficient. Fish growth is not limited by the size of the tank. 55 gallons is not really big enough for an Oscar. Ich is not always present in the water. GPH is only helpful to mechanical filtration, it's actually harmful to biological filtration. Salt is not necessary and can actually be harmful, It's not the pH, it's the TDS. Beef and poultry are not acceptable fish food ingredients. Goldfish are not a preferred food. Fluval Sucks, etc......

It would not astonish me if Fluval is the reason while they pay some Hackers to crash the side for all the love you give them :P

Maybe I will email them that this could be changed if they would provide you with a couple of FX Filters while you don't like the others :snicker:
We need to stop talking about the people as if they were the crown of creation.
