We are after all tropical fish aquarists – there is no reason to shorten the life of the fish we keep by capturing them with cyanide – it is dangerous and destroys the ecological area where the fish we love to keep are native – Be sure any fish you keep is either domestically bred and raised or captrured ethically before it comes into your possession. The figure that 90% of all marine fish captured in the wild are caught using cyanide is very disturbing to anyone determined to keep their fish in the best possible conditons in your personal aquariums.
