    I am not a marine keeper (yet), but I have looked at plenty pics and read plenty of material on it by now. I just ate a seafood pizza from Roman's and I was a little bit meh - maybe that shrimp had a name? :lol:

    It was damned tasty though! :thumbup:

    Has this happenened to anybody here? Anybody been put off of seafood for life by virtue of keeping them in a tank?

    Not a chance...I love all seafood - I am just glad I don't have to pay LFS prices for a plate of prawns.

    NEVER EVER! I like to drink a shot of skimmate every so often, just to keep my immune system on its toes!

    definitely not. I have become more aware of the colour category the fish falls under, i support products that support sustainable fishing etc.
    I live by this site - see link . In short, if its on the green list,i will eat it, if its orange I think twice and if its red, I stay away.

    Haha, I sometimes gag just cleaning my skimmer cup... :puke:




    Good on you! I try to stick to it as well. Unfortunately I can't resist my moms Rockcod fish-cakes or smoked with some elf sawdust!

    I castnet my prawns and spearfish... (almost) Zero bycatch!
