Now is the time to be a "Responsible Aquarist"? Share your views....

Unread postby SCORPIO » Wed Oct 21, 2015 4:09 pm

Recently I was chatting with Laurent Tyty of France. He shared many articles and photographs on "Responsible Aquarist". After chatting him, I realize, how we are destroying the natural habitats and fishes and other animals. Some of the species were already extinct due to our careless behavior towards nature. There may be many other other reasons of extinction of these animals and plants? All of us are responsible for destroy the life in nature.
Please share your views how can we save the nature and became a Responsible Aquarist.

I don't completely agree with your views. We have to use only farm cultivated plants in place of getting direct from nature.

Well many shrimps have also gone extinct. Well especially marine hobby, iv told this many times but people still buy fishes that cant be kept in captivity and many fishes food u dont get here, still they keep them and ignore whatever i said. U cant test on animals guys... sorry but its cruel to starve some of the most beautiful animal (any animal)to death..

Hello everyone, thank you for opening this topic.

We will begin to remember the true meaning of our passion.

I quote the words of mongabay : Each aquarist needs to be aware of the conditions that affect the natural environments which are the source of the wide variety of fishes that are available today.

We should all work to preserve the natural world, which not only makes possible our hobby, but also supports the human species.

A responsible aquarist what is it for you?

Correct. We really should contribute.

Even we go for collection trip, and bring 100 of fishes...and they die every single day after they enter our house. Its tough to make everybody understand about the fact. But again max we can contribute.

Would love to here more from our local guys same time.

so should we also stop collecting drift wood and rocks etc hardscape materials? because even they support millons of life-forms

Nature is our mother. We got all the essentials from nature. All the woods/rocks also comes from nature. We can get driftwood from the nature but should avoid to cut a plant/shrub/tree to source the driftwood.

We should always avoid to Exploit the Nature to fulfill our requirements.
