I don't see any difference between taking things from the ocean yourself, or paying someone else to do it. Either way, buying something from the LFS or diving for it yourself is raping the ocean.

That's true, most things at any LFS are wild caught, which isn't any better than catching them yourself. The thing is, the businesses that catch and export animals are not going to stop anytime soon. They may improve their ethics slightly and harvest more sustainably/humanely (which still is not solving the problem), but individuals CAN make a difference by refraining from taking the reefs and marine animals from their natural habitat, no matter how insignificant one thinks the impact will be. The aquarium trade overall definitely does not have a positive impact on our oceans, and one thing we can do to improve our impact is to not catch and keep animals.

They will grow back. Taking a pair of shrimp is not raping the ocean. I catch fish myself.

It just molted last night, it didn't grow it's claws back, it's probably going to take several molts before I see significant growth.

Just because you took fish and noticed no immediate effect does not mean it is ok

I'm not trying to be rude, but people taking parts of our oceans, and reefs, is one of the biggest arguments against the aquarium hobby. Doing our best to preserve our amazing reefs is the best thing we can do to preserve the ocean, as well as this amazing hobby for future generations.
