They are very hard to breed. Their mating routines and ways of hatching eggs need so much room it cant be done in an aquarium. :/ except a select few like clowns, cardinals, a few gobys, etc.

That's too bad people are just taking advantage of that to make money since saltwater fish are generally more expensive

Yahoo news ran an article last week on the decline of clown fish as well. Apparently they are very close to entering the endangered list (yeah right we think). They said the fall of the clownfish is pixar's finding nemo and with it brought a whopping estimated 40 million reef harvested clowns since the release.

Everyone wants a clown after seeing the movie, but most are either uneducated or incompetent and cannot properly care for the fish. The story went further to say they estimate an 80% mortality rate do to this very issue. People throw them in freshwater tanks thinking it will work out.

All i can say is... Ignorance is mind blowing!! Lol

Thanks so much! I'll be sure to check those links out today. Yes, I'm hoping that my paper could help inform people who don't know and maybe, hopefully, someone else will want to change it too
