Tip of the Day – 12/23/2011


It’s easy to pick up a little extra aquarium-related info the same time you’re purchasing saltwater livestock. Typically, fish stores can be fairly good sources of hobby knowledge. Despite this, the local fish store shouldn’t be responsible for our poor fish purchases. Yes, there is some accountability with the LFS, but the brunt of the responsibility should fall on our own shoulders. It is up to aquarium hobbyists to properly educate themselves on the special needs of each and every fish, coral, and invertebrate that finds its way into our tanks. If a local fish store dishes out bad information, then shame on them. But aquarium keepers shouldn’t limit their source of knowledge to just one place, but instead branch out and get the info from many different places.
