    Saddened to see it.

    It's MAC here and I haven't been around for quite some years but thought about Merrilyn today (Lady Red) for some reason so I've dropped in to see how her favourite place was going. It's sad to see to be honest, this place used to be hustling and bustling with posts, answers, questions and on a 15 minute basis years ago so what happened? Some of the last posts were months if not years ago, good grief! Good breeders come and go, good keepers come and go but this place always attracted new people so it was self perpetuating. Have people stopped breeding, keeping Discus? Genuine question, I've not been involved in the industry for 10 years and I'd love to know. This forum, whilst I knew it well, was without doubt the best place ever for so many reasons. I'm considering getting back in to breeding over the next couple of years so if I do I'll see if I can liven the place up a bit if it's still here.

    Cheers

    Hi Mac,

    That is a nice setup you had. Have to agree that the forum has been slow over the last couple of years. Much like most forums on the internet a lot of people gravitated to Facebook, but we have kept the site running so it is searchable for people. Lots of great information.

    Thanks Jason, we'll see what the next year or so brings but it looks like we're getting some top Asian stock in Australia these days. I agree with the forums, I haven't visited it but heard the other day that even Simply Discus has gone the same way which I find incredible. Yes, please keep this place going, you simply cannot buy the experience and information on this site. Do you know if Rod Lewis is still involved in Discus?

    Cheers

    It's good you are back to the forum, perhaps you could help revive it.
