  10. Is it possible to have an ethical hobby?

    Each example you just listed is exactly the reason why fish keeping IS ethical.... Because the moral intent is for good not evil (from peoples perception) One could argue removing fish from the wild into captivity could save an endangered species = ethical. Mass producing could be considered line breeding to improve quality (once again peoples perception) = ethical. Overfeeding is still a good intent = ethical Removing noxious fish is ethical because thats why they were declared noxious in the fiirst place When humans accidentally or sometimes purposely kill wildlife or fk up the environment, doesnt automatically deem it unethical.
  11. Is it possible to have an ethical hobby?

    I cant see how the hobby is, or ever was, or ever will be UNethical or cruel. I think all fishkeepers whether experienced or newbies, have the moral intent to keep their fish healthy, whether the advice or knowledge they have is correct or not, and whether their fish last 1 day or 10 years, their ethical intent was to do the best they could for their fish. Isnt that what ethics is ?, the intent to do the right thing? Is tying a bulls balls in a knot to make it buck for sport ethical? Is putting a saddle on a horse ethical? Is docking a dogs tail or ears ethical? Is keeping a bird in a cage ethical? The list could go on and on

  13. I use to throw new fish arrivals into a bucket with the water they came with.(quite often ph low if been in bag for extended time) Throw in an air stone, drip feed my water into the bucket over an hour or two or three, or sometimes days. Also added a splash of Fraction or similar to neutralise ammonium change to ammonia with anticipated ph increase. Seemed to account for all water parameter changes that way. Also converted some nice salt/brackish water species to fresh water the same way.

  15. Fossorochromis Rostratus

    Beautiful fish mate! When u move them in to the bigger tank consider using fine beach sand as a substrate. I remember watching mine dissapear in to the sand completely when threatened!! They also love to sift through the sand. Really underrated fish the Rostratus.
