  1. Hard copies were all sold out quite some time ago but you can still get the e.version
  2. Yes I know, I posted another thread on the another in the General Discussion Forum seeing there was nothing forthcoming from admin or mods here.
  3. Agreed Paul. I think you know I have posted on here in 2 forums R2R Reef central and some UK and Facebook forums. It is a sad day when the new of the death of such a man who has done so much to help so many gets no mention from the admin of a forum and is simply left to the membership to inform all. Somewhat insensitive to sat the least I could add much stronger of course. Albert did so much to not only help others but to promote the hobby and in turn help make big profits for the reefkeeping industry.
  4. Can somebody explain why there is no nano reef official report or obituary about Albert that I can see. Forgive me if there is one but surely there should be an official announcement. I notified the powers that be on here on Sunday so there has been plenty of time to make an official announcement. Does admin not care or think it warrants one? However, if I am wrong can somebody post a link for me to it and I apologise in advance if there has indeed been such a post. Thanks.

  6. I am not sure if I will get informed about any memorial service etc but if I hear of one I will post it here for sure.

  8. It is with sadness that yesterday evening my good friend Albert Thiel ( famous professional aquarists and writer of many books on the hobby) passed away I believe late morning around 11am. So sad am gutted for him and his family, wife Sarah and daughter Sharon. We chatted often via email, on nano reefs and a couple of times on the phone. I met him a few times years ago here in the UK before we became friends the last time we chatted on the phone was a few months ago. Albert has been very poorly and lost his fight to cancer and will be sadly missed by many and the hobby has lost a great pioneer and all around helpful guy to all. RIP my friend.
  9. It is with a heavy heart I have just heard the sad new that Albert has passed away. ‎Quote From nano reefs on Facebook. "Michael Del Prete‎ to Nano-Reef Aquariums 57 mins · I am saddened to report the passing of Mr. Albert J Thiel. Mr. Thiel lost his long battle with cancer at approx. 11AM local time in his home in GA on April 23, 2017. There will be a cremation and a small ceremony. - Albert was a well respected author lecturer on various topics in the aquariumindustry. - Albert was my pal, my buddy and my friend. Love you and will miss you. MDP" My heart and condolences go out to Albert's wife Sarah and his daughter Sharon. You are still one of the bes,t Albert Rest in Peace my friend.
  10. My regal Angelfish. My Multibar.
  11. New addition today Multibar Angelfish (Paracentropyge multifasciata) Bit of a challenge but it's been in the LFS 4weeks and I watched it for 20mins and saw it eating brine shrimp. The pic is a library pic as it's only just gone it and even though it is out and about within minutes it is obviously still nervous while it explores it's now home. So far although the other fish have shown an interest in it there has been no aggression towards not even from my Regal Angel apart from a little chasing but nothing serious at all, so, so far so good. Fingers crossed now.
  12. That's geat Paul, do you mind if I copy your post above and share it with my Facebook group giving you the credit of course?
  13. Ooops sorry ...damn caps lock
  14. NOT HEARD FROM HIM FOR A WHILE ALTHOUGH HE DOES PUT THE ODD LINK UP ON FACEBOOK NANO REEFS BUT HAVE NOT SEEN ANY PENNED POSTS. .
  15. Not set up my BS hatchery for a while so thought I would give the fish and some corals a treat. The fish go mad for them. here's a short video, sorry about the lighting and focus as my lights had not yet ramped up and the video was taken on my phone.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qRqqd9ZaVA
