I became disillusioned with the hobby after the evidence started mounting on the damage to reef environments from fish/coral collecting.
A well done tank is a beautiful thing but in the end is a selfish act. It's just not worth it to me now.
remember those days, but now most fish are farm raised, and the live rock, it now manufactured rock, that they dump in the ocean, to become live rock. THings have changed. In Canada, there are a lot of regulations, as to the import of fish.
This is my fav, a long horned cow fish ( box fish family)
