    The Salty Box Forums Has New Owners

    Brent, I am guessing you see this more a business venture rather than hobbiest run forum, which is no bad thing as it should offer a level of professionalism that has been missing over the 12-18 months and certainly within the last 3 to 4. My question is and has been for a long time, how do...

    Help Needed With Evergrow It5080 Light Schedule Please

    They dont use a lot of green light photosythetically but it may enhance colors depending on your coral stock, saying that Red is also important part of the spectrum ( although dont forget white light contains portion of red wavelengths also). Many of the IT50 users have taken on and programmed...

    SB on the up?

    SB on the slide?

    The saltybox group was run as separate entity pretty much originally with old style forum rules as was quickly surpassed by other groups. So yes pushing the forum is a great idea, but guess what i am asking: what the forum can do for me as a general user? How is the forum attracting new...

    SB on the slide?

    To me it a HMV / Woolworths moment was seen 18 months ago with forums. Forums are HMV and facebook Itunes. HMV failed to move with the trends and are suffered as a result. But like the, i suppose arrogance of HMV people will still need stores, echo of your statement people need forums. It...

    I am sorry Realist, but your not living up to your screen name. Yes facebook is a convenience, but forums are a community that stick together if that was the case TSB would be as popular as it was 2 or 3 years ago. Advertisers are setting up there own pages and showing stock within facebook...

    Glad to see its under new ownership and new sense of direction and ideas. Obviously the "news" post has been locked but here is my 2p worth: For the forum to survive and thrive, You need to offer something that facebook can not. Yes as the new owner you may not like it, but you only have to...

    Pair of six lines from Burscough toda.

    Are LFS becoming an endangered species

    We are still a small hobby, so it can only sustain a certain number of shops within a region. Is it better for the hobby to have a small number of 1st class shops within a region or a number of smaller but carrying less stock and choice

    I would suggest tank threads should be treated as a journal and any advice based questions should be via a separate post. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    USA V UK. Why is that?

    Well the study by BRS would suggest otherwise, and why would GHA be better at dealing with phosphates than Cheato? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr1q5BkvO_o
