an innovation or a 'how to' section that covers all I think could be a good idea attached to the general section of the forum It could also incorporate a section for newbies on cycling so regs dont feel like theyre repeating themselves and newbies get all the info they need at once
defo agree too but will throw in that the more places essential articles such as fishless cycling can in appear the better it could be all round. sometimes it's good to repeat an article on a forum to ensure users read it, as is already happening regarding posters quoting the fishless cycle thread from general to those asking.
I dont think we need a new forum for this is the right way to go. Too many forums creates confusion and an agrophobic experience but the possibility of creating a new articles section for DIY & Innovations is interesting.
Things like how to safely modify a stand to include a sump, how to design and build a stand for a tank, repair a leak, build a tank from scratch, make a prefilter, make an external filter, a calcium reactor, Yeast based CO2 and terraced planting have all been articles, blogs or posts in the past and I wouldn't know where to find them now.
However there is a General Guides section in the articles section already and this currently only contains 11 articles so there is plenty of room for more in there before a dedicated section is needed.
