    So sad to read of the forum closure.

    I have only very recently joined but forums are always the best place to find information and share experiences imo, and this one seems no different.

    It's a shame also that cost is a main factor in keeping forums up and running. I know myself that I would be happy to pay an annual fee to have access to the wealth of information available as realistically it's priceless within the hobby.

    Thanks to the staff and admin who have kept the forum running for so long and to those members who have offered advice in the limited time I have been a member.

    Ady.

    I would like to echo the thoughts of the guys above , if it were not for the help and advice from people on the forum over the years I may well have packed in Discus keeping , suuch a shame to see it dwindle over the last 12 months , good luck everyone for the future and keep enjoying your Discus .

    Same here, if it wasn't for BIDKA I wouldn't be where I am today with regard to keeping Discus. I tried several times in the past without success and the good people of BIDKA showed me the light so to speak.

    Thanks everyone for your invaluable input.

    Hi All,

    as above and I am sure the comments below will echo it is indeed a sad day, as a relatively new member I have still noticed the demise of the forum in terms of contributions and as a non-facebook user I wonder where I will get help when needed in the future.
    all the guys and girls on here have been great and pivotal in helping me succeed in my current aquatic adventure and for that I thank you.

    I joined in 2008, and got to know and meet so many great fish keepers from which I learnt so much. I wish everyone well especially those who remember me
