Hans-Georg Evers introduces the issue, discussing the intersection of the scientific community with the aquarium hobby. “I am pleased that, despite a perceived loss of dedication and the commercialization of our hobby, there are still enough people who fiddle around with fishes, do research, and add to our general knowledge. Is there another hobby that has so many facets, so many different unknowns, and so many areas of interest? I cannot think of one.”
