      Wow i usually open up Kickstarter and the very 1st thing i see is that the last update was on March 7th of last year, without realizing that there was a 13th update. Thanks Brandon M.

      Nathan provided an update on Feb 5th. I didn't receive an email for some reason, but I noticed it since I've been checking for updates periodically.

      I too am willing to join on in onto this counter lawsuit. I'm going to call it as it is, I will no longer be holding my breath on Fishbit. It's not about just me loosing hope with this project oh nooo, I lost total respect as soon as i saw how cold hearted they went about it which really they just ran away with all of the backers money and never even cared to inform thier backers as too what has had happened and how the money was spent. Not cool Current Labs "Nathan Levine"!!! Any one knows how to go about this potential lawsuit? Seems like it's true about Nathan leaving this project open instead of closing it in order to save thier behinds from a lawsuit bind like Greg Long had mentioned last year. So we're all just going to sit and wait for our first "No News To Backers" Anniversary to arrive since March 7th of last year? Or can something really can be done here? Anyone?

      Hi Greg, I tried to find a way to PM you, but I don't really see a way to do that in the Kickstarter platform. Regardless, I would definitely be interested in joining your lawsuit; $910 wrapped up in this project with nothing to show for it. My limited research shows that much of the the team working on Fishbit has dissolved.

    12. Greg Long on December 26

      All - clearly these guys have no news and aren't closing the project as that would put them in a bind with the legal terms of Kickstarter. There are few recourses for us backers - however, we can start a class-action lawsuit. PM me if you're interested in pursuing action.

      Was very excited about this new product and even held off buying a Neptune system for this one. Just sad that no one can update us on what is going on with this. Can’t even get a hold of Kickstarter to report this. Please fishbit let us know where we stand!

    15. Patrick Jewell on October 31, 2017

      Noticed your website is down.

      We the backers, supporters, and ambassadors of your product (or lack their of) respectfully demand that you provide an update regardless of the stage of development the product is presently in. Vaporware or not. Providing an update is the right and ethical thing to do.

      Do the right thing here Nathan, and provide an update.

      Would love to know what's going on. I've also tried reaching out to Fishbit with no response. If the project isn't going through I'd love a refund, as almost $600usd was alot, especially with the Canadian exchange rate at the time.

      The Fishbit app was updated on August 6th, so I wouldn't give up hope yet...much like others, I am anxiously waiting for a Kickstarter update.

    25. Greg Long on August 8, 2017

      Really a shame to see you guys go off the grid like this. Fellas - if you don't have the $ for refunds, and you can't complete the project - do the right thing and let us know what's going on. We believed in you, we supported you, and while I'm certain it's a very bitter pill to swallow - you need to treat us respectfully and tell us what happened. As someone who's been through a very similar situation, you'll feel better having done so. -G

      If there's a panic button around, I think now is the time to press it! I've tried numerous times to reach out to the "Fishbit Team" and the creator via different communicative platforms for nearly 2 months now but no one is responding. To me this is really out of character, to even not hear anything from the creator himself, which really has me scratching my head. Obviously something is definitely wrong here with this iresponsible act I mean really, I've seen Current Labs go as far as 2 to even close to 3 months without any updates on here but to go nearly 5 months without any feed back is mind boggling and truthfully inexcusable. Obviously somthing doesn't add up here and we all sense it, why not just let us all know the bad or good or even in between please! We deserve better treatment.

      Is anybody receiving any communication? The mailbox they point to is not accepting incoming emails any longer.. I am done with Kickstarter. I really thought these guys would deliver given they had a working prototype for beta testing out there.So $450 down the drain...

      Hi Fishbit,I think its time for an update good or bad. I also want to remind you, and all of the backers, that per the Kickstarter rules, if Fishbit fails to be released, the creators owe all of the backers a detailed accounting of how the money was spent.

      question on the monitors: How often will the replaceable and calibratable sensors need to be replaced and how much will you be charging for them? Do you envision a system similar to the seneye solution that are replaced monthly?

      Hey Fishbit,
      A few questions for ya.

      Did you already get the third party certification process out of the way?

      Did you get the plastics from the Supplier as of yet?
      Where are you in terms of mass production for final testing and shipping?

      Please no more with the silent treatment! You promised monthly updates. Inform us with the latest please!

      Hello, the wait has been agonizingly long. Kindly publish another update so backers can understand what is going on. This was supposed to have shipped long back. At this rate, y'all have to include some freebies.

      Thank you for the update. I was beginning to get a bit anxious. You mentioned that you will have a better understanding of the timeline in a few weeks. This is a bit concerning since on August 16th you mentioned a timeline of 90 days and now you have established that you're going to need a few weeks to establish a new timeline. I reluctantly was willing to wait 90 days and now it sounds like your saying that it's going to be more than 90 days and the challenges you are running into don't exactly instil confidence in me. What benefit is there to the backers for weathering the storm with you? Many of us have been more than patient and it sounds like you're telling us you need more. Why should we stay? I'm assuming the offer you made in August for those who want refunds is still valid? I really want to continue to support this project but that is becoming increasingly difficult.
