Callatya Posted January 24, 2006 Report Share Posted January 24, 2006 Ahh, one of those things that we tend to not discuss, because we all have a different angle on it. Betta keepers especially avoid it as its so very hard to run an effective breeding program while giving every fish a 30L tank. Goldfish keepers have to avoid the topic unless they have a pond, as the average size and lifespan of a goldie is quite substantial. Marine fish keepers have trouble if they are keeping wild caught creatures that rarely survive in aquaria, or creatures that have been caught using cyanide. Predatorial fishkeepers have difficulty explaining how it can be 'natural' to feed a fish live food when the live food has no chance of escape Fancy fishkeepers, well, that gets all manner of people riled, Celestials, lionheads, doubletails, baloons, you name a fancy fish, and i'd bet a decent percentage of the fishkeeping crowd would boo and hiss about it What are your thoughts on it? At what point do we draw the line? Is it pointless to do so while we recieve no back up from welfare organisations? If lines were drawn by authorities that had little to no fish experience, what side would you fall on? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
