    Hi all,
    We at MASA have just reached a rather pleasant little land mark, and to honour our 1000th member i would ask that you really go for it in welcoming Bashewa to our humble forum.

    Thanks MASA. Forums looks interesting, have been out of SA for 4 years and got hooked on tanks, in that time. Would hopefully like to expand into breeding coral in the future. Decimation of Coral reefs is a fact in the Pacific ( I belive elsewhere as well ) and anyone who uses natural coral in tanks should be fed to ones fish.

    when you say "natural coral" you mean wild colonies rather than aquacultured?

    Sorry! some Aussie Terms creeping in. Aqua cultured fish and coral equals responsible and sustainable earth citizenship.

    agree with you,Aquacultured is the way to go rather than ripping corals of a reef.

    Hmmm, i agree to a point, but at the moment many villagers that were fishing with hand grenades have now been educated to "farm" their patch, by totally culturing all corals you will effectively remove their lively hood, we must strike a balance i believe, to ensure the continued survival of both coral and villager, they have so far been very effective at protecting certain types of coral and fish, i would hate to lose that now, it seems to be working.
