I was trying to access these and I think that aquafacts.net has changed and the articles aren't there anymore :(

Aquariumboard keeps timing out. Anyone else experiencing these problems?

Maybe we can get permission to re-post the articles here at TPF?
if you follow me, you avoid stepping in the crap that I just did...

That would be excellent if we could. I can't access any of those posted, website won't load.
It is absurd to talk of one animal being higher than another. We consider those, when the cerebral structure/intellectual faculties most developed, as highest. A bee doubtless would when the instincts were.

There are a few on The Aquarium Wiki. I'll post back a list of those later.

Many of the articles need updating and other revisions, and are not currently available.

Robert, I had actually searched around the internet and compiled a list of as many links to your articles as I could a while back, so we could refer people to them easier (lots of requests for the snail and salt articles especially).

Looks like most of them are still active (the ones at Badman's), though some links don't work anymore.. not sure if you want to check them over?

The list is here:

I gave up Badman's. There really should not be any there accessible. I'll have to check on that.

Ah, those links might be going to cached sites then, I'm not sure how that would work.

Look like you'll be looking for a new place to store your articles? ;)

First they need updating. Many are out-of-date to me. My practices have not changed all that much, but they are more streamlined (and easier for me). The older I get, the lazier I am also.

But writing new ones is more fun... and lots more interesting. "Chlorine and chloramines" is about ready!
