Ok, Id like to see the article. post a thread with the link. I just can't believe that taking from reefs that are suffering already can help in any way. Hopefully theres some good info in the article.

The Reef Hobby: An Endangered Species?

There shouldn't be much argument after reading that.

I'm okay with limiting the imports if it helps a dwindling coral population, but the idea of making it illegal to buy aqua cultured or home grown makes zero sense and almost seems counter productive. If I grow a banned coral at home and frag pieces to give to friends, it has zero impact on the reefs they are trying to save, so why try to stop that. Same concept for all the aquafarms in the US that already have these corals and that grow these corals. If I have the same coral and decide to sell my tank, I can't include that coral? A lot of this seems overkill and would be tough to enforce.

I think the confusion now is that you have two agencies saying two different things and it sounds like one is jumping the gun a bit.

This is absurd. I loathe politicians and people pushing unfounded ideas and agendas. The damage done to the reefs by aquarists is absolutely miniscule when compared to other sources.

There's an update to the article. As hoped, the decision to ban the import was in error.
