1 Captive care our issues.

2 Natural Biodiversity Tropical Rainforests around the world especially those in the equatorial belt produce large and abundant fish species community’s.[1]Tropical Rainforests around the world especially those in the equatorial belt produce large and abundant fish species community’s.[1][1] One species of ornamental fish the Cardinal Tetra is exported in large quantities from Rainforest streams in the Amazon, South America per annum approximately 40 million Cardinals are exported a year 1980.One species of ornamental fish the Cardinal Tetra is exported in large quantities from Rainforest streams in the Amazon, South America per annum approximately 40 million Cardinals are exported a year As more people demand exotica in their pets the demands of the resource increases, and finally, the only way to supply the luxury demand may be through Aquaculture.[2]As more people demand exotica in their pets the demands of the resource increases, and finally, the only way to supply the luxury demand may be through Aquaculture.[2][2] At other times, husbandry techniques or alternative forms of Agriculture practices can be educated.[3]At other times, husbandry techniques or alternative forms of Agriculture practices can be educated.[3][3] Over use of natural resources has led to the secondary importance of conserving our natural stocks reproducing conditions that are variable to the natural biotope have been difficult to ascertain and hence the supply and demand for the product world wide derives from natural ‘wild’ stocks such is the case with the Cardinal Tetra.[4]Over use of natural resources has led to the secondary importance of conserving our natural stocks reproducing conditions that are variable to the natural biotope have been difficult to ascertain and hence the supply and demand for the product world wide derives from natural ‘wild’ stocks such is the case with the Cardinal Tetra.[4][4] [1] Fish Communities in Tropical Freshwaters, Lowe McConnell [1] Fish Communities in Tropical Freshwaters, Lowe McConnell [1] [2] Managing Our Wildlife Resources Third Edition Stanley H.

3 Water Quality Parameters; Water Quality Parameters;Water Quality Parameters; Ph: The potential hydrogen regulates acidity and alkalinity levels our most favorable condition for keeping Aquarium fishes is approximately pH For the breeding of Cardinal tetras lower ph is required (6 to 6.5pH).Ph: The potential hydrogen regulates acidity and alkalinity levels our most favorable condition for keeping Aquarium fishes is approximately pH For the breeding of Cardinal tetras lower ph is required (6 to 6.5pH).

4 Other fish species Resource; Not only is the Cardinal Tetra exported abundantly but other aquatic organisms are not being correctly maintained are depleting natural resources a conservational list known as CITES[1] has been produced protecting any fish species that are threatened by biological disturbance.Not only is the Cardinal Tetra exported abundantly but other aquatic organisms are not being correctly maintained are depleting natural resources a conservational list known as CITES[1] has been produced protecting any fish species that are threatened by biological disturbance.[1] [1] Advances in Animal Conservation Edited by J.P Hearn and J.K.Hodges Clarendon Press Oxford [1] Advances in Animal Conservation Edited by J.P Hearn and J.K.Hodges Clarendon Press Oxford [1]

5 Corals; Cyanide fishing which uses poison to stun and disorientate fish before scooping them up still alive for the tropical aquarium trade or for live fish restaurants in Hong Kong and other Far Eastern Cities. Dinner is selected while its swimming in a tank. The trade is highly profitable since a live fish is worth many times more than a dead one. Cyanide kills the coral polyps, the symbiotic algae and other creatures.[1]Cyanide fishing which uses poison to stun and disorientate fish before scooping them up still alive for the tropical aquarium trade or for live fish restaurants in Hong Kong and other Far Eastern Cities.
