Photobucket changes

Recommended Posts

Madmerv

I'm sure some of you are aware of the changes to Photobucket. All photos that have been linked via photobucket are now not accessible.

They have moved to a paid subscription model to try and extract your hard earned cash. This leaves a lot of the older content, for me anyway, obsolete because as we all know "It didnt happen unless there is a photo". 

A lot of work will be needed to go through and change the old photo's out. Not impressed at all.

I've just checked a few of my threads and my pictures still seem to be there. I use photo bucket almost exclusively . I haven't noticed an issue YET . My pictures go back to January 2013 on this forum. I guess I will need to find a new app for picture sharing - it was bound to happen eventually .

Yeah i just checked yours and they are good. Wonder why mine are not working then. Are you a paid subscriber to Photobucket?

If you see any missing photos or pictures from content that I have written ... please let me know.

I'll try to fix it.

It might depend on how often or how much you link to photos on Photobucket as well...

SKFA is now not only for Shrimps. Hence the name change - SKF Aquatics.

So it would be great if we could see more posts from you about your Killies and tanks.

There is a killi page just for killies.

Now that photobucket requires payment to use our own pictures on 3 rd party sites- like SKF -can anyone suggest another  free photo share app. I take my pictures on my phone mostly but don't use my phone for forums and facebook so I need to be able to get my pictures from my phone or my computer in the case of my DSLR.

When you compare our member subscription rates to photobucket, we are miles ahead ?

Host photos here.

If you host your photo's on SKFA can you link to other forums from here?

I have switched to putting my photo's up on Flickr and have found it to be pretty good once you have worked out how to get around the site. I do not use a phone for photo's so can not say how well it works from mobile devices but from the PC it is good. It is free for now.

Yes, as long as it’s posted to a section that’s public (e.g. you can view it without logging in) it will work fine. If I remember correctly, the gallery is all public accessible here. You are only limited by the image quota associated by your membership.

Over time I will go through my old posts and repost the images.

Or can create updated posts, you never know! lol

      Oh no it’s magnetic... could be a problem with my magnet cleaner. Although, depending on the attraction I could just use the mag cleaner for the top 3/4 of the tank and get a scraper or something for the bottom.

      Ooh I just found a sand that looks almost perfect, it even comes in the right package size for my tank. https://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/products/pisces-iron-sand It’s another Pisces & Oliver Knott creation; AquaIron. Says it doesn’t alter the KH/GH/pH/TDS etc. Only problem is it says it should not be added to established tanks due to... cloudiness?? What do u think about this one?  Thanks again for your guys’ help!

      I was hoping it wasn't the pisces brand. Oh well, cross that off my recommended list. Are you willing to try AquaLava by Oliver Knott? I know it's not cheap.   Maybe. Got a link or something to where you would buy this? Without going into a whole Geology session, it depends on what the composition of the volcanic sand was.  We get a lot of our Scoria from NZ, that is generally inert.      If you want to go with sand, generally, your choice is Bunnings play sand. However, since sand can be sourced from any quarry anywhere in Australia, there is no guarantee it is inert. You can only buy it and then test for changes to the water parameter.

      Hey guys, just found an add for this website showcasing a cool-lookin native algae eating shrimp. https://algaeeatingshrimp.com.au/products/australian-algae-eating-shrimp Anyone heard of these before or own any? My interest was peaked by the claim that they eat hair-type algae, as I have some on my crypts and lace fern that I cannot remove. And for a price of $4 ea, and super easy parameters, they sound pretty doable!  Tell me more oh great SKFians! 😁 (or feel free to point me towards an already existing page) post-note: have you/do you keep these grubs? Seems like your sort of thing.

      Agreed! I had a tank with this setup but it came with the sponge behind the slits. Try not to get too fine sponge as that will restrict the flow and block too quickly. You will need to keep clearing the sponge every now and again as well! Simon
