I was at my LFS today and found out that in western australia all freshwater shrimp have been banned because to many have been found in local water ways -_- id be more worried about the chiclids that have been dumped at local ponds then the shrimp

It's always sad when this happens because irresponsible individuals release or dispose of unwanted plant and animal life into native waters with often devastating results and all the responsible fish/plant/invert owner have to pay the price. This is a horrible world wide problem.
