Probably 99% of the folks on this list maintain aquaria... most of the folks
I know on here have multiple tanks. There's a HUGE body of experience on
this list... across a broad spectrum of taxa, aquarium designs and
operation, and husbandry techniques. We may not always reach a consensus of
opinion on many topics, but we ALL share (I presume) a common appreciation
for the native North American ichthyofauna.
