Seachem Flourite Black Clay Gravel - Stable Porous Natural Planted Aquarium Substrate 15.4 lbs
BESTSELLER NO. 10 in 2021
  • GRAVEL: Seachem Flourite Black is a specially fracted stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any freshwater aquarium environment.
  • AQUARIUM BED: Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary when using Seachem Flourite Black as this product is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels.
  • SET-UP: When adding water to the aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing Flourite Black substrate bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the gravel bed. Initial cloudiness is normal, but to remove this simply use mechanical filtration
  • COMPATIBLE: Flourite Black substrates will work fine with an under gravel filter and will not soften or decompose to an unsuitable state within your tank.
  • SAFETY: Seachem Flourite Black is not chemically coated or treated, thus does not alter the pH of the water. Flourite Black is beneficial for the life of the aquarium and need not be replaced.

The Cherry Barb: A Threatened Freshwater Aquarium Fish

The cherry barb, a popular species for freshwater home aquariums, is threatened in the wild due to commercial overfishing for the aquarium industry.

Unfortunately, the aquarium trade's love of the cherry barb has threatened its security in the wild. Unlike some freshwater fish such as the cardinal tetra , which is quite prolific in the wild, the cherry barb does not breed eagerly enough in its native homeland to keep up with the demands of the aquarium trade, so its wild populations are now depleted.

Although the cherry barb can breed in captivity, many corporations involved in the trade of ornamental fish have found that it is cheaper to exploit foreign labor and wild populations of cherry barbs, often paying only fractions of pennies per individual fish. This tends to be less labor-intensive than breeding them in captivity.

The problem has become severe enough that the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has classified the cherry barb as a threatened species since 1996. It remains listed as vulnerable to this day, and does not seem to be recovering from its overharvesting. There are no international regulations preventing the import of cherry barbs to the U.S. or Europe.

Responsible aquarists should avoid purchasing cherry barbs from fish dealers or stores without first verifying that the cherry barb was bred and raised in captivity. Fish dealers are not required to be honest about their sources, so only purchase from dealers who can reliably be trusted. Compassion and a willingness to conserve wild animals will help to maintain this beautiful fish's foothold in its native habitat.

If you are interested in responsible fishkeeping, you may want to read about the galaxy rasbora , a not-so-distant relative of the cherry barb that has become critically endangered due to severe overfishing--all in a matter of just two years.
