One thing the world needs less of is fakes, phonies, scams or companies pretending to be something they are not. Lying behind the truth claiming something good, when all along it is they that are doing the wrong in the name of profit, killing for money. Which is what it is all really about, isn’t it? Money or Sponsors the Aquarium Clubs call them. In other words…they are in bed with the very companies that are ripping them off, killing untold numbers of fish, corals, & inverts worth 2 billion dollars a year above the table and 3 billion below. Aquarium nerds everywhere worship and award their idols…the masters of coral poaching from other countries, exclusives they sneak back in little bottles on airplanes so they can be the only ones who own and sell them for unbelievable prices on eBay, Craigslist or Reep Central.
“We are saving the reefs by stealing them now…We might put them back someday somehow” They say!
You can't rob a bank and tell the police..."we we're going to put it back someday".
Stealing is stealing and coral poaching is coral poaching, supporting your sponsors that claim aquaculture or Mari-culture in the front door but coral poach out the back only feeds an already stressed ocean.
Besides, what good does it do to go through all the trouble to grow corals & fish to be sent to the Local Place of Death central filtration copper UV formaldehyde killing system? Doomed to live less than a month!
Sounds like an aquaculture killing machine to me. Millions of lives and Billions of dollars gone every year and nothing left to show for it but an empty ocean and rich people doing nothing for the very life they claim to care about above the table.
Aquarium societies were invented & designed to seek out new better information, so all the members or anybody watching will learn to do it better so they don’t have to take our hobby away someday, when its all gone and dead and it will do no good to put it back because it will die too.
All the people of Reep Central are killing the reefs! Not saving them!
"Its time to talk about the truth and uncover the scam...to turn on the light and watch'em scram...For it will never be reasonable, responsible, or right...to put a shark in a golfish bowl...For twenty years to life!!!"
There are more sustainable methods of collecting, keeping and truly aqua culturing sea life for conservation not money or sponsorship.
Schools will grow corals in the near future not doctors because without the lies of the pet industry in the way, children will easily grow corals and doctors will learn from them a degree in new school, practical ways to help each other and the seas without profit before life.
All on-line for everybody to learn the new truth about saltwater aquariums and aquaculture. They say “you can’t teach an old doctor new tricks” so we must learn our way into sustainable sea life by teaching our children the truth about keeping marine life, not lying to them so when they grow up you have more sheep to feed off because of lies for money.
It is UN-AMERICAN to treat each other or sea life in this manner. 90% dead within a month so you can “bill it forward” and sell more fish, corals & inverts.
Aquarium societies, doctors, universities, public or private aquariums, wholesale facilities, pet stores, and private owners need to take a look at their mission statements, oaths & morals again to hold themselves to their own standards as well as others to be what they claim.
Truly set aside your own desires, interests & opinions, just for a moment, and ask yourself; Is all this killing for money right? Can we do better and still enjoy our hobby while making money too?
Shouldn’t moderators in chat forums be objective instead of preaching their old school egotistical views that are wrong anyway?
If some of these issues are not addressed soon, they will “SHUT IT ALL DOWN!” Bills’ are on the table now as well as more to come, especially after fish, inverts & corals get RIGHTS!
We are trying to offer a compromise of a truly sustainable marine industry. We must first take better care of the ones we “must” take from the wild. This is something we can do now to save millions. The ocean can support smaller numbers harvested yearly and if we didn’t waste 90% of what we bring in, it would be sustainable. The rest should be Mari-cultured or aqua-cultured in schools to be sold to the aquarium industry that runs independent filtration, never mixing everything together which is what kills everything now.
Finally the precious life forms should end up in an educated in saltwater aquarium’s hobbyist natural tank, partly taught by other hobbyist in aquarium clubs that truly teach good information and Do Not Support the sponsors for money that have no business in there to begin with. Get out of bed with the murders for money claiming conservation moderated by a corrupt scam on a National level called Reep Central. A society of morons that know so much…they should run for God. The Gods of PVC glue & egg-crate,stick on a plug & aiptaisa, flatworms & red bugs. Requiring sacrifices of mother colonies at your local house of death, fragged on Monday, sold by Wednesday, Dead by Friday! Rulers of the land of eBay & Craigslist that promise that the life is deep within the dead rock all you got to do is rub it and wait six weeks for the smell to go away and presto it comes back to life, with all the Cheap Morons And Snobs in America believing because of the lies, scams and bad information.
To kill more… is to sell more and if you’re successful at killing more, they are successful at selling you more & more & more….before it dies on them!
