Agreed... humans have a rational/moral sentience and a responsibility to use it right... just don't always know where to draw the line with animal rights.

This is a very interesting discussion you see people feeding dogs at restaurants etc like members of the family and think nothing of it but replace the dog with a cat or a small fish bowl people would think you were crazy its all about the mind

Because we are the bullies of the planet. What we like stays and what we don't like goes. Some people like majanos and keep them. So maybe there is an aiptasia tank somewhere.

Oh there are certainly aiptasia tanks. There are many "pest" tanks over at nano-reef, and probably more on other forums as well.

How about culling deformed/hybrid fry? Or, those that just don't meet the requirements of the breeder. How does that fall in to your thoughts?

Well, quick answer is you live in the wrong culture. If you look into it you'll find some people actually breed dogs as food, not as pets.

Some people keep pigs as pets, and refuse to eat pork. It's a culture thing.

My personal opinion on the killing pest dilema is thus: Do your best to respect life and minimize suffering. Death is a part of life. It's a cycle. In the wild many animals go through massive die offs on a regular basis. Trust your heart and do your best, thats all we can do.

Pigs are actually smarter than dogs in many cases, so I don't have any ill feelings towards the people who eat dog. Kind of hypocritical to condemn the eating of dog while munching on bacon.

Seeing as no cultures really value the life of the ugly, stinging, invasive aiptasia it is almost universally acceptable to kill them off in droves.

I think this is well-said.

I don't agree with it, I would keep them and just not sell them, unless it seemed like they were in pain, then I'd euthanize them humanely.

I dont agree with culling those that aren't 'nice' enough looking to sell... but I do agree with culling deformed or hybrid fish. Neither are going to better the hobby. Deformed fish, like balloon fish for instance, don't live the life that those without deformities do. They could be in pain, but who knows. Hybrid fish, unless bred for specific purposes (to better the environment for instance), are also something I'm totally against.
