Chances are good that if you are reading this blog then you have already used more water today than most people use in a week. As aquarists we use a disproportiionate amount of water than most of our fellow citizens. With over 1 billion people without access to clean water, we owe it to our fellow man and our planet to be even more conscious about water usage. World Water Day 2009 this year is focused on boundary regions of land and water and how both environments affect each other. Please take a moment to visit the WWD website and educate yourself about the importance of water to our way of life (and our aquariums) and what we can do to conserve H2O as a resource.
