    Next 3 years - earn for a second degree, take a few OATA courses, start working on The Plan
    Next 10 years - Put The Plan into action
    Next 20 years - Be happy and hopefully, sucessful.

    The Plan - set up my own aquatics centre, aquatics adoption and rehoming project and small scale breeding project. I aim to breed a lot of my own stock, import quality stock or source from other small-scale breeders and run a little adoption centre for water critters who are unwanted, sick or disabled. I want to educate people on fish-friendly ways of keeping pet fish and why things like flushing fish or putting loads of fish in a new tank are bad.

    That sentence is hilarious for some reason. :p:

    By "flushing fish" do you mean disposing of them after they die? Why is that bad?
    Well, for a start it adds additional physical waste to the system that is unlikely to break down in transit and thus could end up causing a blockage. Secondly, it risks introducing diseases to the water supply and thus to local aquatic life. Thirdly, the fish may not be dead and thus this causes a great level of stress and suffering. Fourthly, some people intentionally flush live fish.

    A lady came into work and admitted to flushing her sick male molly to "put him out of his misery". Nasty way to die . . .
