Aquarium Advice Logo

With the drastic impact that the Pterois volitans is having on the ecosystems in the South Florida Estuaries, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and soon to be Central and South America is this really the best choice for a logo? While I have no direct interest in salt water aquaria I'm extremely interested and concerned in the preservation of our natural ecosystems, especially the since there is not a continent on earth whose waters and fishes have not been affected by the devastation and destruction caused from deforestation, pollution, agrochemical run-off, overfishing, global warming, political unrest, and invasive species. There are thousands of better suited fish to be the Aquarium Advice mascot but in my opinion the Pterois volitans isn't one of them, I'm sure others feel the same way.

Yeah, like that madagascan cichlid (name is slipping me) that the london zoo is searching for, a female if i remember correctly. Help raise awareness!

Good point about the volitan HUKIT

Ptychochromis insolitus, The International Union for Conservation of Nature is searching but I don't think it's going to end well. It doesn't need to be a Cichlid but if it was then probably Pterophyllum scalare would be a great choice since it's the world's most easily recognizable cichlid out there.

Or something with more than just a fish for example a globe with say an aquatic plant in the middle of it and a snail a coral and a fish all around it or something like that. Since this isn't a fish only forum. I do like the lionfish though they taste good wrapped in bacon.

With the minimal fin extensions, doesn't it look more like a dwarf fuzzy lionfish (Dendrochirus brachypterus)? http://www.aquariumdomain.com/images...fLionfish3.jpg

I disagree with changing the logo. A logo is like a mascot, and I don't think it should ever change.

HUKIT, I respect your opinion, and I know you are very knowledgeable, but I algree, it looks more like a Dwarf Fuzzy Lionfish.
The only way to know for sure is to contact someone higher up I guess.

My US $0.02... It looks more like the dwarf fuzzy lionfish than the Pterois volitans. Although, one could argue that it could be the Pterois volitans, with artistic license.

If its ok for Major League Baseball teams to switch mascots then I think it would be alright for a small aquarium forum

Thank you for the commentary. Changing the logo is a decision only the owner can make.

I have closed this one as it has served its purpose.
