Man stuff like this totally sucks! I get torn on my opinions on this both being a hobbiest and working in the field of conservation. I have done a lot of research on the effects of invasive species and see the damage that they do but at the same time i understand the desire to keep potentially invasive species. I wish people could just be responsible!!!!!

or, on the other side, the current blanket ban on freshwater mollusks and crustaceans here - for no real reason, since they cannot survive in our native waters studies have shown time and again.

Hmmm... interesting that they were going to ban tiger barbs. I love those little guys, and how fast they swim around a tank. Once I get my 125 gallon tank, I was going to convert my 55 into a home just for them, lol. They are some really awesome fish.
