Re: Florida Legislation

Yes, the user pays, but.. discouraging people from getting into the fish
hobby is only going to be detrimental in the long run.  Fish are already
an expensive commodity, especially if you include the fact thatt your
average person, new to the hobby, must replace them frequently.  The vast
majority of people won't know or care where that extra money on their fish
are going to.  ALl they'll know is tha the Neon Tetra they bought last
week cost $1.99, and this week, $2.49.
