i see lots of BIG fish rooms being posted on here and facebook, mine included, i have been told that the limit is 5000 ltrs, is this true, have any members been told they have to much water, can you get a permit to have more and still stay as a hobby, some will know, some won't, but i have down sized my fish "hobby" for a couple reasons, mostly due to family members health and our time needs to be spent on them, i have been looking into what is classed as a hobby and what isn't, this limit on water volume was the only one that i failed at, so i'm working at getting back down to 5000 ltrs, which should be done within a couple weeks, but interested in knowing other members thoughts, and would love to hear from any that had been asked to cut down on water volume, also something we should keep in mind when setting up our "hobby"
Hi all, I have been asked as an industry representative to provide a list of some of the most desired fish species that are not on the import list, and not on the noxious list. These will be supplied to the government group in combination with industry representatives and scientists that will be assessing these species in the future. These species could either be added to the noxious list, or maybe have some kinds of regulations on them for safer keeping -an example might be permits. If they are deemed safe or "low risk", those species may be then applied for by someone to be added to the import list at a later date. These are known as "grey list" species and this list will be dismantled and sent to the most appropriate list for that species in the future. As such there will no longer be a grey list. Seeing as there are so many of them, it is desirable to establish a list of species that will be sent through a risk assessment process, to prioritise for assessment if you will. For example. a list might be like this. red tail cat bichar clown knife motoro ray, leo, henli flower horn cichlid. peacock cichlid. Species names are welcome next to the common name as well and if you like you can estimate what these fish might be worth. I don't want to start a big argument over prices, but we might use a range or say 1-100 dollars, 100-1000, over 1000 dollars. I am not concerned who has what or how many and i am certainly not acting as a narc, only if you are aware of fish that would be in high demand, or maybe you just a great fondness of a certain species that is not imported. Obviously those found on your state noxious lists currently have either been determined potentially too risky to the aquatic environment, or had no interest declared by hobbyists or industry in the earlier rounds of meetings. Ok, let's see how we go. thanks.
