IMPORTANT: Our Hobby Needs Us NOW!

Big Money - "Save the reef!"
I try not to simply re-post or direct link to other sites material, but this is too important not to feature.

Several of the species of coral that we keep in our own aquariums could soon be placed on the Endangered Species List. Murray W. Camp, a respected hobbyist and reef expert is helping to lead the fight and get the word out. Please visit the following links for further information on how we can help.

Most hobbyists are responsible and eco-conscious individuals. We would often prefer to propogate our own coral and purchase tank raised specimens whenever possible. While intentions to save the reefs are noble, this legislation appears to go too far. This could harm our hobby and the industry that employs so many people.

Hopefully our voice will be heard! Let's keep reefing.
