I wonder how many people are still in the hobby from when this site was very popular(years ago)?

I was surprised when I seen that this cite is still up and running. It reminded me of the past when this was the place to come for swaps, trades, and discussions.

Since then there have been many new faces, but almost rarely the same ones from a decade + ago.

I suspect there won't be many people readings this, but I was interested to see if those who started or were in this hobby a long time ago still where?

I bet if they were, there is a wealth of knowledge out there.

Well I did let it go down for a while, but it was senseless to not bringing it back up. It does not cost that much to keep it running.

I'm glad it's still running.

Well me either. I find it rather hard finding information, especially past information when using something like Facebook.

That's very true.
I get reading thru forums can be taxing, but the information is the best and you can always refer back to it.

I think it'll come back around FB will probably sensor everything before long

I’ve actually been out of the reef hobby since around 2016. Been doing planted freshwater only since. Probably only went for a year without a single system.

In any case, more folks than you think are still around—they just don’t stop by here as often, if at all. I wasn’t sure if snoop was going to bring the site back up or not, but I’d still check and stop by every 3-6 months.

Well you know me, I just cannot stay away long.

I have learned so much this year about reefing that I did not know before. There are so many tools in the arsenal now on keeping a tank, it is crazy how much better this tank is doing. My growth rate and stability is just incredible.

Here are my favorite dudes in their new home.
