Nogi's Pending Retirement from SKF Aquatics

Recommended Posts


The time has come for me to hang my net up and focus on other priorities in my life. Working in excess of 80hrs a week and running 3 online sites amongst other things has been leaving me with no time to spend with family or to simply physically and mentally recharge. Rather than leave this community with a forum owner that is always MIA, it’s probably a good time for me to retire and find someone to take up the baton to move things forward.

A big thank you all for making this such a great place for newcomers and experienced aquatic keepers. And huge thanks and shout out to all the current and previous moderators – @Squiggle@northboy@jayc@fishmosy , @revolutionhope@ineke@OzShrimp, @smicko@Loach , @buck and apologies if I missed someone.


Some anticipated Q&A

Who is taking over?

Couldn’t tell you as no decision has been made. If you know of anyone that might be interested, get them to get in touch with me.

What happens in the meantime?

Absolutely no change, the cogs keep turning and it’s business as usual. You probably just won’t see me post that much but I will be lurking. Anything urgent just tag me in a post or send me a PM.

When will the change happen?

When I find someone suitable. Might be a week, might be a year from now.

What about my shrimp?

I shut my tanks down back in Christmas to free up some time so no issues there. lol

Sorry to hear the news. But I know what you mean about working overtime. I have been super busy at work myself.

Hope you get some R&R and time with family. Recharge those batteries Nogi.

Sorry to hear this @NoGi. You have made amazing improvements to this site and kept a fantastic resource available to all of us shrimp keepers, a Massive Thanks for keeping it running and developing.

I can appreciate the need for time for other parts of life, I hope you get time soon to spend with the family and to recharge those batteries.

Hopefully one of the current members is looking to take on a new challenge. :music:  Such a great site that has taught so many of us how to keep these little critters thriving.

      Always try and look on the bright side! It does look more golden bee than red bolt but that may be because I HAD some stunning red bolts to compare it against. You may have been better off buying it at the slightly higher price as you would then have all the babies as well, assuming all went well of coarse when you transferred her on purchase. As you say, you know it is female!  Simon

      The photo don't show the true colors, its more of a orange color, and at the shop a week ago, it had berries, they wanted to charge me 10 USD, I didn't take it, and now it hasn't any eggs I got it for 6 USD.   At least I know it's a female.

      Those are stunning red wines (and photos) and as you say, not sure if it is a golden bee or a red bolt but whatever it is I am sure it will give you variety to the mix and mating will give you something you maybe don't already have which is always exciting. Simon
