Well, for me, I don't like fixing things that aren't broke. As I sit here looking at the NEW and improved name, I think if I had to of changed it, I would of gone with Tropical Fish Keepers. One seeing that is what we are, and two that is most likely what other fish keepers would be looking for. Just my two cents worth and you know what they say about opinions!

Why was there even a change in the first place?

fish forum was very good for search engines!!! But since that will redirect to this, and this is a nice domain too, I think its a good idea.

You're right that tropical fish keepers is what we are, Krinedawg, but tropical fish keeping is what we do. We thought it would be better to use the name indicative of what the site is about rather than who visits it.

While it's true that our old domain name was highly relevant for a fish forum, unfortunately not many people go searching for a "fish forum". They generally search for information related to tropical fish keeping. We are hoping the new name will allow many more fish keepers to find their way to and enjoy the community.

We're glad you think it's a good idea, mrdenim, and we hope others do to and that it grows on those who don't! :-P

Thanks, guys!
