In this picture you see the results of my care of my seven years old reef. It houses more corals than I can count, however I do know that there are over 200 strains in this little glass box. I also know that no one could love these animals more than I, they could love them as much but never more.
I will say this one more time and try and lean on my diplomatic side; it hurts when rumors and lies are stated against GARF. I feel we are honestly doing such great work. We are fighting for these animals; we certainly do not have time to put other peopleıs work down. Nor do we have time to stay up with the chat rooms.
We get hundreds of kind and supporting letters and e-mails, but every once in a while we get one that is very hurtful one. These e-mails tell us that people are saying things about us on chat rooms.
I admit I am human. I know how much my staff cares, I know how hard we work. I know how much we are freely trying to pass information to all of you. I know how much time and energy goes into these articles. I know how much time and love goes into these pictures, and I know how much it hurts to have someone say that they have heard that we color enhance our pictures. I know these people have never been to GARF, I know that they are misrepresenting the truth and often they are unwilling to show their own tanks. You can find years of pictures of the same reefs with the same corals, and we have been willing to share our success with you.
I know that so many of the true Industry leaders have been to GARF. They know the truth, and they have seen hands on how much we have achieved. Not one of these people have said that our corals do not have bright colors, and they have said that no image can show the true beauty of our reefs.
I know that we have never said our way is the only way, but I can promise you it works not just for me but for people all around the USA. It is our solid commitment to help save the Worldıs reefs and the only way we can do this is by working together one reef aquarium at a time by being honest, by sharing information and by never giving up..
You can use man made rock and yu can purchase propagated corals. You can find captive raised fish. If we do this one tank at a time that is more than we had the day before. For the wild reefs are dyng and that is our fight. That is what makes all of us at GARF wake up each for every morning. I know that with each breath we take in we can make a difference and it is not too late. We can not get distracted by one simple hurtful comment. This could keep us from staying focused on the future of the wild reefs. If we do not work together and share information there is no way that the positive end result will be realized. Please keep the e-mails coming they mean the world to us. All I am trying to do is give you the same gift LeRoy gave my seven years ago. That is my personal goal and my professional goal is to share GARF with the entire World.
