A responsible aquarist will research and make important decisions before setting up a tank, keeping the welfare of the inhabitants in mind. This requires knowledge about the effects the aquarium hobby may have on reefs, how to choose species and sources of fish that will result in the least damage to the reefs, and what can be done to maintain the beauty of natural reefs, worldwide. Careful consideration should be given to choosing captive bred or aquacultured stock. In stocking and maintaining the tank, the welfare of the fish and other inhabitants should be top priority.
