    Right so doing research & getting my tank ready!! I have come to understand that there are some major issues with keeping marine live stock!!

    We spend lots of money on RO water & filters &&&& - just for the fish to crap in the water!!

    am I missing something!! if only they kew how many tests we do & how much work we put into keeping the water clean!!

    it's like doing house work & having people mess the house up all the time!!!

    that got me to thinking about other stuff!! & you don't want me going there!! all i think of is where we use to catch fish some times!!

    I am an old deep sea fisher man used to fish off Durban turned to scuba diver!!

    now if only we could train the fish to crap in a filter!!

    :)

    Unfortunately, we took them from their natural habitat. Therefore it is our responsibility to provide them with an adequate environment. Yes, it is expensive, time consuming, and sometimes frustrating, but after that we are blessed with that beautiful glass box that we all enjoy.

    That's why we have protein skimmers and waterchanges.

    Like Anemone said, we took them from their natural environment. It's only fair we provide them with the same conditions they came from.

    Remember that fish poo is also food for your corals. It's a natural cycle.
