Hm, okay I hear you on the saltwater. There must have been something negative I read about the practice bc there's a fish store here which sells wild caught salt and fresh water fish (all imports) and someone did up an article I think years ago. It was like the catching of parrotlets/parrots in the wild and how they're kept before shipping them to buyers for stores.
Yes, refreshing the gene pool is healthy in any species!!

Birds go through pure torture. I watched an episode of chimp Eden on animal planet where they were out in charge of some 1000-2000 African Gray youngsters. Being flown out the country illegally, they were discovered and sent to the chimp rescue (best place to take them really). The poor babies, some of them were babies, had no feathers. They kept em a few days, released the healthiest looking ones that could fly, recaptured the ones that actually weren't as healthy as they seemed, and continued to nurse them.
Anyways, you can imagine, smuggling birds? Dark crates with no ventilation. Can't imagine how you'd keep them quiet.
Our captive bird gene pool is huge, breeders register and track family trees. We have no need to import more of these animals since everything is well managed.

helloooooooooooo
i got a mani/pedi today. for the first time. first time i've painted my fingernails since i got Swish! i feel so girly x3
i washed my fingernails like 2832893 times before i changed the water in the 1 gallons. i'm sure newly painted nails are nonos for sticking in the fish tanks but i scrubbed them really well.

on a related note, i hate scented lotion >.<

Like a wild pokemon! But you're more like a suicune appearing than a zubat. (Gosh I hope you know your pokemon!)

Anyways, almost midnight and.. School tomorrow. Last full week of classes before exams though, and then summer. Which means... Summer school. And fish paradise times!
