Well, if there were (more) natural predators in the So saying we having to control nature is just mankind being full of itself. We do have to control nature (ourselves included) because we are the only animal, as far as we know, to have the ability to distinguish right from weak. You can't call any...

I agree with you tender. People need to get their emotions in check and deal with these matters rationally if they want to help anything. Just as you said, if we stop hunting a population (because we are predators in the food chain too, yes?) it can cause a lot of problems for the environment. There...

Lucky you guys Brett, I wish we could do that with Walleye or something here, then release them into the North Saskatchewan River when the time comes. I know that they raise Weather Loaches as food in China and here in Canada, I have seen ridiculous amounts of them packed into barrels at asian super...

New River Tank

Hey guys, I recently moved pretty much everything out of my 30 Gallon and put it in my 20 Gallon because I felt that both tanks looked relatively bare. I added a Fluval 4 filter for better flow and a few more rocks, and I'm working on sanding down more Bamboo for the tank as well. The plan for this ...
