hahaha yea i guess thats more likely
like me arty-smi whoa who said that
it already is... for me
its hard for me take take as hard of a stand on this topic as i would like to as having a reef tank automatically makes me bias and hypocritical. obviously many if not all of us have a deep appreciation for the ocean and the reefs and all the life within as we try so hard to emulate and insure our little reefs thrive and care deeply for their health. but as much as i want to support an act that will limit and protect our worlds reef systems i have participated/supported the collection of corals through purchase even tho i think everything i own are frags of frags but none the less...
so im kinda in the middle rooting for both teams. perhaps this will lead to more innovation for frag farms as wherever there is a demand for a good the market will find away to supply (legally). perhaps more focus will be put on growing the current reefs and propagating/replanting. i've seen a vid of ppl who frag corals in the ocean and then plant the frag in an area where the reef has suffered and it seems to have made an impact and has restored once devastated reef areas and brought life back..
either way the policy goes its a pity i suppose...
Yep. As long as people stay on-topic, I'm leaving this thread open.
Hurray more unneeded regulations .. I think they want everyone to be a fellon
Follow the money trail. Who benefits if this legislation is passed?
I submit to you that it is university-scientist types who want to obtain government grants paying them to go study coral reefs around the world at your expense.
No endangered coral species ... no all-expense-paid trips to Bora Bora and Tahiti.
Before saying such a thing you should visit the peoples website that are pushing for this
Please note I have nothing to do with them and DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ACTION.

Pretty soon they will start to make everybody get their corals spayed and neutered.
