Tip of the Day – 6/21/2011

Documenting those great aquarium builds on the forum-based communities is not only fun, but you will probably get some great advice along the way. Advanced aquarium keepers will chime in on how they setup their systems, and new hobbyist provide a fresh look at your tank and might give you new ideas. On top of all that, just sharing a few details might help someone else achieve their aquarium goals.

Unfortunately, there’s also a downside to sharing your build. For starters, you expose yourself to tons and tons of potential questions. Another bad thing about documenting those great aquarium builds on the forums is they all come to an end. Sure, it’s fun to share your new toys with the world, but like anything new in the hobby, the spotlight will quickly fade away.

Share.

  • Very similar to starting a blog site to document your tank.  Once you get to the point where new additions are less frequent and the hardware is all set the update posts start to get farther and farther apart until the site dies.. at least with a site though is doesn’t get buried by thousands of other threads
