Rafflesgold: a web space for goldfish lovers.

In my opinion the forum should be renamed as the webspace for goldfish enthusiasts. Members are quick to scrutinize other member's possesions and use the word cull immediately regardless of what the owner and others who love goldfish think about the fish.

Sorry but I had to voice my opinion.

Sometime I do feel the sensitivity of the subject.What is cull to us maybe someone's treasure!It goes to show there are many different levels of fish keeping.At extreme,the hardcores will settle no less than a "perfect fish" as they view each fish with stringent scrutiny and without much compromise.While at the other end,a runt or a stunt may simply evoke our sympathy and compassion to keep it on humanitarian grounds.

Many may feel intimidated to show their fish here but I feel to learn we must be prepared to learn the hard way if we need to improve.Back in 2003 when RG was founded,we had a panel of hard core enthusiasts that many find very unfriendly and unaccomodating, especially newbies.I had my fair share of such encounters initially and eventually win their trusts to become what I am today.Along the way,I learned alot here and in return I am here to teach and guide all to reduce the learning curve in goldfish keeping.My keeping is far from perfect but I think it will give you a reasonable headstart to upkeep any goldfish... rolleyes.gif

Regardless of whether you are a Goldfish lover or goldfish enthusiast you are all welcome here. wink.gif
