Navigating the tangled web of aquarium forums isn’t always the easiest, especially if you’re new to a particular club. Every forum has its set of trolls, and every club has its schiesters. The trolls are really of no threat to you, except they may make the aquarium forum a negative environment that is not fun to participate in. The club crooks, on the other hand, can really do some damage. They often come disguised as good-intentioned individuals who would seemingly give you the shirt off of their back. Then, once they get in good with you, they take advantage of your generousity and naivitay, often leaving you a few dollars lighter in the process. We’re not suggesting that you exile yourself or be suspsicious of everyone you meet, but we are saying to be careful and don’t get taken advantage of.
