For a few days i’ve been trying to get to Practical Fish Keeping but i keep getting the message below
“Practical Fishkeeping is currently offline for maintenance and should be back up and running shortly.”
They have also sent this email out to all registered users, its a shame as the whole website is down and has been for at least 3 days.
