there were articles on going to really remote places in search of the previously unknown. I have as much of that "spirit of inquiry" as anyone, but I have to wonder why, since the aquarium trade has literally thousands of
interesting species already introduced into the hobby,
many of which offer tremendous challenges in care and breeding, we continue to see folks trying to stalk wild stocks of little endemic species from places better left alone. There's tons of great fish to raise already
in the hobby. I don't have much respect for the "gotta have it 'cause nobody else does" theory of fishkeeping.
