    Yeah the problem was that he had the answers from those involved and still kept opening new threads on the same thing.

    This is mild to what you just described from years ago.

    Yeah the thing is TASA tends to have a lot of people, more than APSA. They dont ban or close threads unless fighting breaks out. Discussing is fine, trading has been allowed and more flexible now.

    My point is that some people open new threads unnecessarily on the same subject and keep on at it when they already got answers from the first one. See what i mean?

    maybe they doing that to act out. look, we have had conflict in the past but its not our style to delete/ban people unless its absolutely necessary. in fact i cant rem the last time we ban someone/deleted legit posts. there are many more democratic ways to deal with conflict

    APSAs culture is way different to other forums no matter the user count. ive said this before and i'll say it again.. APSA is free and fair for everyone to use.

    Exactly. If we work together as a "team", there will be no problems. I think the shrimp market is being supported to the point where it will have to become legal - ONLY if people are responsible enough not to dump them into our water / sewage systems. For example, if you have a mexican dwarf crayfish and no longer want to keep it - it is better to cull it, give it to someone responsible OR take it to an LFS. I know some people are keeping them - downside is that you can't keep it with other fish or invertes. Everything will be chowed, which is probably why it's on the invasives list.

    Shrimps aren't so bad - they're bottom feeders and actually most are good cleaners too from what I hear about them. Lots of people are breeding them and selling so I would support this hobby if it became legal.

    I just don't appreciate it when someone who is clueless about something on the blacklist or invasives list and that thread gets trolled. Might be funny to us but not to the OP. I agree about spreading education and information which is crucial to our knowledge of keeping tropical tanks. I know this is more of a planted tank but people do keep shrimp for cleaning purposes and some are quite pretty to display in a tank. I can't argue with that one. And shaming an LFS without knowing facts is what gets me riled up - some people just have no respect.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Apparently someone got shrimp in a betterweather order by accident (in the plants)

    Hope I'm lucky with my order :p

    Please don't slag me but this is how I got it. Neo cardina example ( pumpkin jelly rilli RCS) can survive in our water and are banned from import is if u declare as such it will be blocked. However you may breed and sell if u have them in ur possession. Cardina example (crystal shrimps) can not survive in our water are fully legal to import breed and sell. No court ruling ever to support my statement that I or daff can really provide to support either statement if u ask me lol. So we have just as little or as much proof on either side to put an end to it. My 2c
