very sad sad.gif



once upon a time, rafflesgold was an exciting website where goldfish hobbists exchange pointers.



it differentiates itself from the rest of the forum with no nonsense approach and no "unsubtantiated comments " .no commercial agenda,



today it is a quiet forum

"Quiet" is understated. More like dead. biggrin.gif

Come to think of it, the "once upon a time" is now almost 10 years.

I still pop in quite often....... to nothing. rolleyes.gif

Being a pioneer site, things always get a bit stale after awhile.(just like an old marriage) Needs some TLC to spike things up and move with the times. I see on many occasions when new or not so new members posted their treads, they don't get any reply or a long overdue one. This kills off enthusiasm and new blood participation which are vital to any forum. sad.gif But still, this is a very good forum and has got plenty of good articles from the past. good_very.gif

I for one learned more about fancy goldfish on this site than any other place.
I also referred other goldfish lovers to this site and still do. IMHO there is more info here than on any
other place on the web or any book i have read.

O we are not dead but just getting old
But dying has made us rarer gifts than precious gold
Speak not from our mouth but was rightly told
We may lose our glitters ,we may lose our shine but we remain,Rafflesgold...... peace.gif

u cannot blame ....



nowaday, many LFS have come and gone especially those that carry quality Goldfish.



rainbow gone, jalan kayu uncle bye bye soon. so sad....Yue Feng, too exp, Sam, too pai sei to walk in and drool.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



the market is awashed with arowana....prices have come down to affordable level from thousand to just mere hundred even at 199. beg2.gif

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------



and some breed such as ryukin on the other hand , price has gone up and up since last year.



quality ranchu and oranda now aday hard to come by, 3 months ago i tikam tikam some redcap at S$18 each. one grow bigger than the rest by one boday size while the rest remain a runt.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------



recently i bought Louhan and ciclids too.....at least they did not die on me compared to Goldfish even when there is some spike in PH and change in water chemistry



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



now thinking of converting to plant tank......
