Are coral reefs in trouble? Do you believe there's enough being done to keep them from going extinct? Is there anything we as SW fish keepers can do to help?
People talk about saving the rainforests a lot but coral reefs don't appear to get as much focus. I honestly don't know much about it though, or whether they're in very much danger right now. Hence the reason for this post.
Discuss all topics related to saltwater / reef tanks.

Also, the more knowledgeable people in the hobby the better because that then means there are more people home breeding, which means less stock taken from the ocean, and yet everyone is still able to enjoy these wonderful animals without harming the ecosystem.

I saw Finding Nemo on TV earlier while flicking through the channels and it made me think of this thread and wonder whether Finding Nemo helped or hurt reef conservation? It's super popular obviously so it must have raised awareness for the Great Barrier Reef but on the flip side there's all those parents that rushed out to get their kid a "Nemo" or "Dory" just because their kid wanted one. Cue lots of neglected dying fish because they didn't research on to care for them. So...yeah, I'm not sure.
