Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #512

This is the first time I have ever posted, so hopefully I'm doing this right. 
 I am an avid reef and fresh water aquarist.  I have heard many discussions 
about this subject and I'd like to add my two cents.  The reef aquarium 
industry does not significantly impact the world's reefs.  Think about all 
the pollutants dumped into the oceans everyday, surely it is much more 
harmful to dump thousands of gallons of raw sewage into the ocean, than 
taking a few fish.  Think of the massive fishing outfits that scour the ocean 
daily.  Another problem is global warming, this is caused by every one of us 
everyday when we start our cars, use electricity, the list goes on and on.  
Maybe we should outlaw the use of gas operated cars. I'm sorry if this post 
is off the topic, but it is something that I feel strongly about, the 
aquarists are not the problem.
