I am not afraid to be different i find you quote very funny
A few other members have countered this, but as you did direct it to me I will respond.
Your comment that your fish are not stressed is in itself a sign of your lack of understanding about fish. None of us can know first hand what is or isn't stressful to the fish. But we can learn from ichthyologists who have spent years studying this. To ignore their conclusions is comparable to going to your doctor and ignoring his analysis of why you are sick because you think you know better. You don't. None of us do.
My opinions on this forum are always based on scientific fact and personal experience. Always. I do not guess ever. I never post on topics of which I have no knowledge. The fish are living creatures and deserve better than my guessing or experimenting. If anyone decides to keep a live creature, be it a fish, turtle, dog, or horse, there comes with that decision the responsibility to first learn what is required and then provide it. Anything less is total irresponsibility.
If providing the best environment for my fish according to what nature has programmed them to expect is closed minded, fine. If we all followed this we would have healthier fish and fewer problems.
