I thought this article might be of interest to marine aquarists.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

It's so sad that we can't do more about it. Especially the countries who rely on fishing to stay alive. Japan especially.

Byron, good to see you outside of the planted tank section
