By virtue of simply being aquarists, we have the power to promote and perpetuate the natural biodiversity which exists in the world. Often times, this occurs unintentionally, while other times it is the dedicated aquarist making a conscious effort to bring a conservation ethic directly into their daily aquaristic pursuits.
My students learned the first lesson of aquarium keeping: that aquarists are in total control over the life inside their tanks. It was immediately apparent that an adult wouldn’t step into help them and the future of the living things in the aquarium depended on them. With time, the care they took to keep the fish alive and happy started to transfer to how they treated others and, later, themselves.
