I dont want to come off the wrong way, but everyone thinks that a few people buying a clownfish, and it dying, is gonna make PETA and the other tree huggers cause the US government to ban all the LFS's from selling anything live.
I know we aren't supposed to be running the thread off topic, but I wanted to make an important point.
The major collectors (all of which happen to be in California) barely squeaked out of a court ruling putting major restrictions on the collection of fish, that's right, the one's we all keep. They were able to put off the restrictions by promising to police themselves better and improve the welfare of the collected fish. I can safely assume that they have a limited time to show results.
So while you may not be aware, YES....we are really that close to having a limited hobby. And with the attitude of many hobbyists, retailers, collectors, etc., I honestly can't say that it would be a bad thing right now
