In this episode, the team at Water Colors discusses their top 5 CARES fish species. The CARES Preservation Program (Conservation, Awareness, Recognition and Responsibility, Encouragement and Education, and Support and Sharing) is based on conservation efforts and public education.
The goal of the program is to “encourage hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species at risk and distribute offspring to fellow qualified hobbyists, while forming an information network where possible between aquarists, scientists, and conservationists.” –

Addendum: We recorded this episode before our recording session for the Lacey Act Amendments (Episode 67). In this podcast you will hear us referring to an upcoming “Lacey Act Amendments” podcast, despite that episode having already been released. The content discussed in our Lacey Act Amendments episode includes many potential ramifications for the future of our hobby. At the time, it was decided that we should prioritize getting that information to you as quickly as possible.
