lol, someone on here has been to calvus and told him what people have been saying about his forum! lmao I was banned for a day but then it let me login the next

Nick,

Members like yourself are one of the many reasons the classifieds has been removed.

It was brought to my attention from another member on here you say you have been banned from this site somewhere else? I can arrange that for you if you wish ??? Did you get a kick out of saying that? :canadian:

Await your reply? Im over :clown:'s on the web and have no time for them here! If you want to blindly follow a herd of sheep then go for it! On what basis do you find this a "crap site"?

Regards

Dean

Sorry dude_753, you are banned from using this forum!

Less than an hour before being banned for saying Brad at aquariums alive had some of the species of fish the person was chasing.

Kinda wanted to get banned so I could be part of the in crowd, ie you clowns..lol

Yeah, they were the good ol' days eh Wayne? :roll:

I remember when I first joined I'd make a post, check it the next day and quite often my post would already have rolled onto page 2 and with several replies, such was the popularity and activity on its forum.

Not many sites even now will bang along at that pace. Mind you it was the only QLD cichlid website at the time, back 2003 I'm talking about.

this was pastered on the other forum and i agree.

The most important thing in my opinion (and I say this for all the QLD based forums) is get over the petty squabbling. It is ridiculous and has become a badge of honour to bag the others forums.

(quote from me)

finally someone has said it. if it gets me banned from this or any other site then well be it . guys get over your petty *poo and lets talk fish.

I might throw my 2 cents in...

Sigh... I'll keep it brief.

I was banned from a certain forum almost 12 months ago now, due promoting a fish Aquarium club and other Fish events in SEQ area.

:evil:

I'm a pretty nice guy, for those of you who know me.

If fact I don't think i'll go into it, it's just so petty...

Regards,

John.

Why is that I wonder? You'd think any aquarium club would be happily promoted.

(oops, think I just go myself banned from that other forum :lol: )

...just got banned too...calvus has lost the plot

I think it was because I was asking too many questions about his alleged Kapampa frontosa's...and he didn't answer one...hey deano

wolften

Interesting that you say that. I had a friend ask me if I sold these when I owned Wetpetz. Apparently Dean said he bought them from Wetpetz two years ago from somebody called Andrew. Thing is, nobody called Andrew worked there, and I can't remember ever having Kapampa frontosa??

Its a pity cos that forum back when it was Qldcichlid was great

I happily paid money to sponsor it and everyone used to get along so well

Now since Dean its rapidly going downhill and its a real shame

I was banned along time ago but thats another story

I have heard alot of stories about his fish

From Yellow Calvus being smuggled in Jam jars to the Kapampa Fronnies

I wonder where they came from Malcolm cos I am sure you would have remembered them

Anyways guys I think this has gone on long enough

Lets get onto some happy topics

I must be lucky.... I told him what I thought just before he deleted a post and I wasn't exactly nice but he didn't ban me. (shhhh.. don't tell him he might ban me now lol)

I tried to help someone on there recently but had half my post deleted because it referred to a different site (cichlid-forum). He never said why and never replied to my pm asking why. I'd be darn if I am going to offer help to someone only to have it deleted for no good reason.

Jenny

Sounds familiar....

So, what are Dean's fronnies then....

Aquarium clubs should happily be promoted & any can post here. Its all about promoting & expanding the hobby. People should know when auctions & meetings are on.

I agree with Wayne, it used to be a great site. A tip for Dean.... A house full of people is a house full of different points of view.

We had our moments, with certain members being hard to take at times. {looks in mirror} but it was entertaining, well tried my best :mrgreen: The bottom line is when someone had a problem & needed help they got it.

this was pastered on the other forum and i agree.

Spot on, the problem is 2 many people have complaints against one person. That tells you something. I used to get into a lot of fights at school. I thought it was everyone else... A teacher pulled me aside, note the common thread. I was always getting into fights. :idea:

ps; Thats the difference, you won't get banned for saying something that is the perceived to be the truth. {just don't piss grum off when he is pissed, oh that is often :lol: }

Await your reply? Im over :clown:'s on the web and have no time for them here! If you want to blindly follow a herd of sheep then go for it! On what basis do you find this a "crap site"?

If Dean reads this post & still can't figure it out. Then there is nothing anyone can say for the penny to drop :roll: I don't think anyone is blindly following sheep here. You Aussies need to give sheep a bit more credit :roll:

Very interesting, I was just talking to yourFRIEND whom I have known for a while as well, and it seems that Dean Pike aka calvus does not have any Wild Caught Kapampa Frontosa's, yet he advertises his F1 kapampa's fry for sale. BUYER BEWARE

Seems to me that he should ban himself and unbar everyone else.

It would be nice if all the Aussie forums were more co-operative and supportive. Unfortunately all of them are either mediocre or over-policed. It grieves me to say that but it is true. It would be good to get the fish clubs more involved with online forums too since they have a lot of fish keeping and hobbyist experience. Unfortunatley they also seem to have just as much inter club politics as forums have. Co-operation is the best way to get species specialisation and to attract international traffic and posters.

One would think there would be a huge Australian native fish database and forums full of useful experience for example.

At least there is some fish keeping passion here (and respect goes a long way too).

I have seen his fronnys and im pretty sure they are genuine kapampa, anyway they are definately a zaire variant and are amazing looking fish. The only bad thing was it looked like he had alot of males. Also it is possible that if he said he got them from Andrew, that it might have been Andrew from Beenleigh and not Wetpetz at all... i do think i recall him saying they were from Andrew at beenleigh.

Im not trying to stick up for Dean here but i dont see why people cant just get on with their lives.. i got banned ages ago after an argument with kev in red frontosa topic :lol: i was allowed back about a month or 2 later but never really got back into it because qldaf where it was all happening... i have heard alot of the stories and i have met Dean a few times and seen all his fish. i dont think hes as bad as everyone makes out and he hasnt done anything wrong by me so i dont say anything, as for his fish i have seen them all and they are all good quality fish and he does have a fair few rare tangs.

the way i see it is if you dont like that site then its simple dont go there. it doesnt mean you should write him off at any given chance. im sick of hearing it all and im sure others are too!
