    I think the website may not have been updated yet, it's in the newsletter.

    Was waiting for a decent offer before subscribing again! Have just finalised my order.

    I used the link via the newsletter, but it doesn't seem to be working now? Which is odd.

    If you have subscribed for years, cancel the subscription and start a new one! I've dont that 3 times now and have a got a free heater, free interpet internal filter and now a free external filter!

    The RRP of the filter at £80 seems a little ambitious, you can get the ex600 for £40 + p&p.

    The thing is with cancelling and resubscribbing when you pay by direct debit they cannot increase your payments, so you pay whatever the subscrition fee was when you subscribed, if you cancel and do it again then you will pay the new prices.

    I subscribe to a footie mag World Soccer for £19.95 for quite some time. The retail price of 12 issues is now £44.20.

    I acquired a Fluval 405 last time I was in the PFK office. 1300lph in a 60 litre tank - that's what I'm talking about!

    The TetraTec EX600 may be useful for my 10 litre nano though... :D

    I knew about this days ago, if your a regular on the PFK forum then you'll know about the uproar it caused. Basically some of the regulars(and some not so regular) kicked up a fuss because they thought they should be given preferential treatment on the giveaway, esp. because they only have 60 to give away after that it's back to the test kit gift. Although I believe most of them thought it was going to be another nano tank that was gievn away as it wasn't revealed what the free gift was only the amount it was worth.

    I have subscribed again as I could do with an external for my 18G, I've only got 2 fluval 2's running on it at the mo and they take up a fair amount of space. My subscription to PFK doesn't run out until Feb 2010 now :lol:

    haha I use the same justification, I have some ecocomplete left from my current 60l project so I will have to buy a nano tank to use it up!

    Every time I pick up a copy of PFK and flick through I never seem to find sufficient new / interesting content. I always end up putting it back on the shelf. Am I missing something?

    Well is suppose it depends on what your looking for, PFK provides a great deal of info in the many different areas of fishkeeping. What would satisfy you thirst for new/interesting content? i'm sure they would appreciate feedback.
    If it's soley info about planted tanks that your interested then maybe TAG's or AquaJournals would be better suited to your requirements.

    To be honest I don't know what I'd like see in the magazine. Perhaps there simply isn't sufficient new stuff emerging.

    That may well be true although i think PFK offers much more than just new stuff, the articles are really good whether your a novice or pro and it offers something for every kind of fishkeeper. Given the competition on the web for free i think PFK do a great job of bringing fresh, new and exciting reading, it must be tough to compete with tinternet. I really look forward to getting it every month. God i sound like i work for them! :oops:

    I love it as George is doing an awesome job at bringing planted tank articles every month. Also I can read about other areas of fishkeeping I know nothing about. Like making ponds, marine and cichlids. Personally they are areas I haven't tried but I know I will in the future, so to learn about them is very interesting. The reviews on equipment is very welcome also.

    The article on crabs coming into the country was great too, did you see the purple ones? Went into my LFS and they had them in stock. I don't have a tank for them though, shame.

    On a side note, there was a woman on PFK forum saying theres articles every month telling me how to grow plants so why can't we have articles about...

    I love PFK and have been a regular buyer for nearly 20 years!!! I subscribed when the cube offer was on and was lucky enough to get one.

    In my opinion as well as a half decent writer on high-tech planted tanks ( :lol: ) they have one of the best writers on cichlids going, Mary Bailey. And some other newer cichlid writers look pretty good to.

    Like Lisa, I love reading about all the different parts of the hobby, especially Marines even though I'm probably never going to keep them anytime soon. More pond stuff would be good, especially some of the newer stuff on koi ponds with RO for Koi, Fluidised bed filtration, Bakki showers and other new filtration ideas, but it's probably a little specialised for them really.

    I love the magazine too, and thinking of upgrading my Juwel Rio 125 to a Rio 240/300 soon and might convert my 125 into salt water. So reading about it in every issue has been usefull.
