Demeter is someone I also rely on for betta breeding, raising, genetics, and identification. I also see them around cichlid threads.

Edit: I would also like to honor Gypsy13 for her salt knowledge and disease identification/treatment. She may not be active on here, but I'll remember her for that.
Added Gypsy

Gypsy13 isn't into salt water, she treats diseases with salt!

This isn't fish related, but BReefer97 is our local reptile expert. scarface and Gamer are great too from what I've seen.

And Addie42 for houseplants and Ohio Mark for general fish! Is Jesterrace on for saltwater species information?

stella1979 and BReefer97 for that too? I don't pay too much attention to the houseplant side of Fishlore but from what I've seen I believe this is the case.

I joined in 07 after someone gave me my first fish tank. I used to post a lot then and I still love this board. I don't think I have posted too regularly however in the past several years to know who's most knowledgeable as far as what but if your area of expertise is reptiles, Blackwater, brackish or any biotopes really then I'll gladly follow and trust you as those topics are the ones I have the biggest interest in on this forum.

I guess I can be an expert on gaming!!

Thanks! Yourself and jmaldo are also some go to people when it comes to rams. Then as mentioned earlier coralbandit is a ram guru.

I had noticed a Coptapia shaped hole in Fishlore tbh. His name would've been all over here. Lots of knowledge lost there
coralbandit has a big role in the information in my Ram guide. We have talked a bunch in private about what has worked for us, what do we do in raising Rams, etc. He is definitely a guru. I have been inactive lately, and it’s good to know that people are getting good advice on Rams from him. There’s a lot of bad information on them in general.

You're a slacker or they would have said you instead of me ! See what FB gets you !
Hope the new job is working out ok ..

What a wonderful thread! Thank you for this. Everyone on my own list is already mentioned, but how fantastic that we have so much combined knowledge to share and learn from? Fishlore still the winner in my book.

Lol enjoy this thread! Sometimes people don’t get the recognition they deserve this is a good example of that occurring unintentionally. Also gives everyone else a good idea of who to tag for answers to specific inquiries! Love the love here! Keep it up everyone!

HI all! At some point there may have been a thread similar to this but I can’t find it so I’m making a new thread. Like the title says what is your specialty in fish keeping, what do you consider yourself to be most knowledgeable about? Is it breeding certain fish (if so what kind), is it under standing water chemistry, knowing all of the scientific names, understanding how a lot of different filters and equipment work, knowing a lot about a certain group of fish, ect.

Personally I would say I know most about Blood Parrot Cichlids, however I also know quite a bit about various catfish, other larger cichlids. Of course I research a lot about all the fish in my fishroom but I don’t want to say I’m an expert on all of them.

I am good at giving my Cories my best death stare when they splatter their caviar all over the glass right after I have cleaned it (am perfecting it for my baby Axolotl too when it starts swishing its tail in the food sending it all over the aquarium then looks at me as if to say "welll...don't just sit there, clear up the mess" )

I like to think I'm pretty good at sitting in my comfortable chair with a cold beer and enjoying my tanks. At this stage of my aquatic career that's the only skill I can lay claI'm to.

Bettas. I am by no means an expert, but I have learned a decent amount and am fairly knowledgeable.

I remember that thread but like you I can never find it when I need it.

I know a little bit about getting a tank cycled.

I know a lot about kribensis cichlids, Bettas, and some snails. I'm also pretty good at confusing Cory types/names
Edit: I know a lot of stuff about various tetras too

The complete saying is "A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one." Random fact of the day.

I would encourage you all to go to the beginning of this thread to find some that I don’t think I’ve seen mentioned in the newer parts.

I don’t know that I’m great at any one thing. I do think DarkOne is worth mentioning on this thread. Plecos & cories specifically is what sticks out in my brain but all around very knowledgeable
 

CaptainAquatics

Member
Well I would definable agree that I am a jack of all trades, I just know a bit more about BPs (probably because they are my favorite fish, lol)

Leilio I needed to alter the quote a bit in order to better incorporate context towards the aquarium hobby.
I do apologize to the original author of the quote for so badly mangling its content. Lol.

I read back through all the post now that all 3 have been merged. Sadly it looks like several of the folks mentioned have not been active in a while. Sometimes life gets in the way and Fishlore has to be put aside for a while. Hopefully the missing ones will come back and visit from time to time.

I have learned so much since joining this wonderful community. Sending out a group Thank You to everyone that takes the time to share their knowledge with all of us. There is always something new to learn.

I completely understand you. I thought it will be a random fun fact to post about the original quote, so I did. Have a good day!

This thread was started almost 3 years ago. I don't remember a similar 1 unless it got deleted.


Edit: they were merged. Now I'm not so confused anymore lol.

Even though i'm still very new as a fish keeper, I'm currently keeping 8 species of GouramI albeit only Three Spots and Dwarf GouramI over a year. I'm happy to help with anything Gourami.
My disease and treatment knowledge is nonexistent but i'm trying to improve

Well what i've seen of your fish and condition they live in besides the beautiful colours and health, you really know your knowledge on them

Cool Concept.

2. Anything Catfish (even channel and bullhead catfish)
3. Shell Dwellers

By no means am I an expert or a specialist. I’ve just tried and screwed up enough things to know how to fix them. I’ve also accidentally had a lot of breeding and have figured out the bare minimum to induce breeding.

Aoiumi, Freshwater.

1) General betta care
2) Researching stuff

Other than that I just have a lot of general knowledge. I'm not an expert by any means but I like scientific journal articles a fair amount, so I'm not scared of getting into the really technical research. I'm also constantly studied so we'll see where I am in a couple months!
