    Everyone whos been around for awhile knows who the general "go to's are

    Example most tag coralbandit for rams advise
    Mattgirl for cycling

    Who are good tags for other things?

    Plants?
    Ferts?
    Substrate?
    etc.......................

    It would kinda be nice to have a sorta arsenal on hand for specific questions when no one is answering.......;)

    @A201
    @86 ssinit
    @jmaldo
    All have good all around fish and disease knowledge IMO.
    @chromedome52 will clear up any questions ..One of our smartest if not ...
    There are lots of other good people many with special interest like myself ...Although at 35+ years fish keeping /breeding don't be fooled into thinking I only remember the last 7 years breeding rams !;)

    Thanks CB.
    My picks for Fish Lore's (Fish PHD's) are @coralbandit & @chromedome52
    Those that hold Fish Lore (Fish Master degrees) in specific areas are: @oldsalt777 - Water management purist
    @Chanyi - Advanced Aqua Gardner.

    As for me, I'm just a "Jack of all trades". Thirty plus years in the hobby. I've learned a few things along the way.

    @DoubleDutch is a wizard with cories.
    @bizaliz3 is the go to person for angels.
    @richie.p is the shrimp master.
    @Dave125g is an all around expert (as are the others, but they have their areas of extreme expertise as well).


    I'm sure they will say "oh, I'm not THAT smart" but don't believe them. They, along with all of the people that have been mentioned so far, are some of the smartest and most aquarium-forward people I've ever met.

    :emoji_thumbsup:Here is a short list of my go to:

    @coralbandit "Rams" without a doubt along with breeding many types of fish
    @chromedome52 "Fish ID / behavior / stocking"
    @Mcasella "Plants"
    @richie.p @FishRFriendz "Shrimp"
    @DoubleDutch "Corys"
    @Jocelyn Adelman "Ferts and lights" not sure if she is still active

    and many many others whom I have learned so much during my Journey keeping "Wet Pets" and "Under-watering Gardening"
    Thanks @coralbandit I am humbled by your inclusion but just a short timer compared to everyone mentioned.
    Still Learning all the Time!
    It takes a village!

    Let's not forget @Momgoose56 when it comes to trouble shooting problems with cycling. She knows the science behind it.
