    Thank you.
    Very important aspect in the hobby. An article on this is very much appreciated.

  2. Not surprising that so many of those anemones die quickly being subjected to that

    The saddest part is i actually saw some Freshwater fish the other day at a LFS that were Tattooed !!! they had freaking Hearts and other stupid symbols tattooed in pink and blue on their white bodies. i couldnt believe my eyes. how can someone do that to a fish? not cool !

      Ah, great point, David! I wrote that line about “tattoos, piercings, or other forms of rebellious body art” with tongue in cheek, but unfortunately, tattooed fishes actually are sold on the freshwater side of the aquarium market, as well as garishly dyed specimens. I don’t believe I’ve yet come across tattooed or dyed marine fishes, but certain anemones and corals are sometimes dyed with bright colors to make them more marketable. Truly a regrettable practice!

      Hi, Donnajean. First off, thanks for commenting! In terms of your question, we may incorporate a “Reader’s Tanks” section at some point, though that is still undecided. Is that what you had in mind?
