16 – any fish/coral/inverts you think shouldn’t be kept in aquariums?
There’s sooo many… my biggest one would probably be whale sharks. I’ve seen them being kept over in Japan and I think that they truly can’t be provided for in captivity space wise. On a smaller scale, I disagree with the widespread capture of dragonets for the aquarium trade. While some people may have luck in keeping them, the majority of aquarists just can’t sustain the copepod populations to sustain them. The vast majority of them slowly starve to death, so yes, I don’t think they should be kept in aquariums unless provided for appropriately.
24 – what comment do you get most about your aquarium or the fact that you keep saltwater?
“Isn’t that hard work? Like, they’re a lot of maintenance right?”
Yes… they’re tough, but I’ve found having a strict maintenance routine makes it ever so easy. Check your salinity every day, test your water once a week, frequent water changes and feeding appropriate amounts of food make keeping a reef tank that much simpler.
