    As the owners have let us all down with their lack of input and support to both you and the staff here, and in a bid to keep the saltybox name alive we have started a new saltybox forum.

    If you know about it and joined,, great. If not then please join us at http://saltybox.co.uk/
    Join us and with your help and support we can rebuild the saltybox name as a forum leader.

    also worth mentioning, if you have a tank thread here you wish to preserve on line then feel free to copy it to the new forum before it becomes lost forever. (We can’t do that for you)
    Just as a little side note,
    Although it’s named saltybox uk, we welcome members old and new from everywhere.
    Hope to see you over there soon :):)

    Remember the possibility of this forum being taken offline soon is very real. Come and join http://saltybox.co.uk/ and move your tank threads over so they can be preserved rather than lost. It's a sad thing I know but ever since the forums were first sold they went to pot, come and try and build they back to what they once were.

    Well I’m disappointed to be honest that Brent has not done what he promised and for that I don’t blame the admin here going their own way.

    Brent, why don’t you do whats best for the forum I did t sell it to you for the money I wanted you to put input, time and money into it and not watch it sink.

    I at least was 50% through a new costly template as a new style.
    Had a good deal on a server.
    Had advertisers coming back.

    Shame and I gutted for Salties members.

    Wished I kept it

    This forum may well be taken offline soon when the hosting fees are due, remember there is a new one at http://saltybox.co.uk/

    If you want to keep your content alive them please feel free to join up and transfer it over, there is far too much excellent content here to be lost but lost it will be soon

    Just a reminder to join the new forum. The owner of this one appears to have gone bankrupt so it's only a matter of time before this one is offline for good. Remember if you want to keep your tan threads online you'll need to copy them over otherwise they'll be gone forever
