    Nothing should be kept from there natural environments right ..... So me as a reefer would feel like a hipocrit even commenting on this.... We all have tanks in our homes and ocasionally we have parties,loud music sessions or the suround sound top volume when our favourite flieks are on ........ I find this thread hipocritical on a reef site

    The standard aquarium fish has a brain smaller than a pea. A dolphin has a frontal lobe bigger than ours, making them capable of complex language and thought patterns. A large hippocampus, making them capable of emotion and feeling. Dolphins are self aware, fish are not. If we kept whales and dolphins, Hippocrits we would be.

    I think the petition was for all the animals at ushaka. They've also got animals other than fish.
    We were there a few weeks ago and saw penguins , seals and other animals capable of hearing.

    The Party was not cancelled but adjustments were made ...more Security was added...inside the different Venues and around uShaka grounds...searches at the door...no smoking allowed..."netting" placed over Shark Tanks to prevent stuff being thrown in the water...staff with "nets" to scoop the odd "rubbish" thrown in..the main event with DJ Lisa Lashers was moved from the Shark Tank to Moyo Restaurant..venue times were also adjusted...the 2 Decks closed at 1am..2am respectively..and I think the Moyo Venue went till 4am..?, with no alcohol served after 2am..? ..not sure as I'm going on memory...:blush:...SPCA Inspector inspected the 3 Decks, tank windows for vibrations and also had a eThekwini Councillor tweeting with hourly updates regarding decibel reading's and overall progression of the night and status updates on the fishy's...

    Well guys.
    This really gets my back up with the SPCA, anti animal activists and other rubbish like that.
    Amaizing how many people will sign a petition ban fire works for New years and make a big noise about saving the animals, dogs, cats, budgies, fish, ext for one day a year but those same people will neglect their pets the other 364 days a year......

    My neighbours are exactly the same...
    Had a big hoo-haa at me for lighting fireworks on New Years eve as it would scare their two stupid Maltese Poodles.... But they are happy to go away for a weekend and leave the dogs outside with a bowl of food....
