The demonization is by the media, they get their information from various
sources not eh least of which are various conservation organizations and
scientists that seem to hate the idea of keeping any wildlife as pets. Their agenda is
to use any info they can even to the point of less than accurate info being
used to shut down the aquarium hobby. My concern is that the government will
come to believe this stuff and we will suffer for it.
