Welcome to the Loaches Online Forum Archives, full of historical information on loaches and other freshwater tropical aquarium fish from 1998 to 2005. You may want to use the Search Engine to find what you're looking for, or browse the other archives: (Archive 1) (Archive 2) (Archive 3) (Archive 4) (Archive 5) (Archive 6)

The Loach Forum Archives (3)

Loach Forum Archives

I upgraded the Loach Forum Archives tonight, since the old system was quickly becoming unmanageable. There's now only two main archives, although a third will be added shortly.

The only major change that you'll see in the new system is that the archive boards are no longer searched by the main search engine, like all of the other pages and forums at AquaWeb. (20000+ messages really slows a search engine down...) Instead, each forum has their own search engine accessible from a link at the top. Thus, you'll have to do a search on each archive to cover all the messages; but, this does have the advantage of freeing the main search engine from the clutter of thousands of archive messages. This change alone saved me about 90MB of search engine related files (basically dead weight from a user perspective.)
