Oldfishlady... I want to add too that we mods were genuinely thrilled to see you back and posting! Not one of us knows what recent incident you are referring to. Please come talk to us in the Member Discuss With Mod area of the Forum so that we can clear the air and resolve this. If one of us recently offended you... please come talk to us or pm a mod you feel you can talk to. We have no plans to ban you for your comments. We all want you back!!
I just want to say that I was happy to see you return to the forum. So many people were upset that you left because you've always given good advice to members and you're a valued member of this forum.I don't know what more we can do or say to make you feel welcome.
Hi OFL I know we do not know each other but you did answer every pm I sent you back when I was learning how to cycle my tank and you along with Hallyx got me though some rough times when I was in doubt as if I was doing it correctly and was concerned for the health of my Betta Perseus by doing a fish in cycle and for that along with many other members of our Forum I am forever grateful ! I have known the other Moderators for several months now and I must say are they are most dedicated people and members I have known in making sure our Forum is a happy and safe place of all members and when a member is unhappy such as yourself we try to fix it and we discuss it over and over till we can come to some conclusion. So I ask you how can we make you a happy member of our Forum again ? You yourself said you did not want to return but we were so happy and trilled when we saw you posting again and sharing your years of experience with the members.
I don't know why you are saying everything that you are OFL, but what you are saying right now is very unfair to us because we've been waiting for your return for a very long time. You have no idea....
Please do clarify why you believe you are no longer welcome here...you have been and you always have been. As someone who have deeply respected your knowledge and your kindness on this forum, I feel very upset and betrayed that you've said these things about the TFK Team when none of us have any idea what is going on.
Let me say this again, we always wanted you back. If there is a misunderstanding somewhere please do clarify, it' is just extremely unfair for us when we are so happy to have you back and posting again and then hear you say things like how we will ban you, and how you are not welcome.
Hi Oldfishlady! I've been reading your posts on natural planted tank. My history with aquariums were when I was a kid and my dad had arowanas to gold fishes, kois and Oscars. I think its been 10 years since that he got rid of them and now I've moved out. My girlfriend's sister gave us two betta fishes jut recently and that has sparked my love to wanting to start up a natural planted tank, 10 gallon aquarium in our condo. We just got a 10 gallon tank, Do you have any recommendations on lighting? I've been trying to research, but there is so much different lighting out there, incandesecent, led, and flourescent and I wanted to purchase the right one for my tank. Any advice on brands or specific models? thank you in advance :)
I agree with LittleBlue. If they ban you for giving good solid advice, then let it be on their shoulders. You were one of the few mods on here who was fair and impartial. Others are blatant in their favoritism or their willingness to be politically correct and soft. If you are banned, I dont know who I'd turn to for advice.
Well, keep doing what you've been doing (which is to help people who have questions or sick fish!)..... If they ban you for that, so be it. But I've never seen anything except good, solid and helpful advice from you.
