The aquarium hobby is always in need of pioneers, especially in the realm of fish breeding and coral aquaculture. If you are a hobbyist that’s interested in fish breeding and taking your personal experience with aquariums to the next level, what’s stopping you. Even if you take baby steps, they are steps down a path of aquarium sustainability. If you are already a breeder and have seemingly mastered one species, try branching out into a new fish. Try something nobody else is doing. Find a fish that’s abundant in the hobby, but also one that is predominantly wild-caught. Any way we can reduce stress on wild fish populations and coral reefs will help. We just need to step up to the plate.
