Welcome to the second volume of The Vivarium and Aquarium News! In this issue, you will find a wide assortment of articles covering many different topics. From “Nano” tanks, to Leopard Tortoises, to Crocodile Newts, to Anemone Fish, this issue has something for everyone!  As we move forward into the new year, we must make sure our hobby doesn’t move backwards. Luckily The United States Association of Reptile Keepers (USARK) is there for us. For those who are not aware, USARK is a science, education and conservation based advocacy for the responsible private ownership of, and trade in reptiles. Exotic pet keepers are under a constant threat of losing the rights of keeping and caring for our beloved reptiles and amphibians. USARK plays a vital role in fighting against laws that aim to regulate the sale and possession of reptiles. USARK has successfully fought and continues to fight any and all regulations or rule changes that compromise our individual freedoms to keep pets. I would like to take a moment to thank this organization for fighting for our rights to keep exotic animals and encourage anyone who is not already involved to find out what this organization can do for you and what you can do to help. For more information about how you can get involved, please visit www.USARK.org.

We would love to hear your story.
