    @ Moorish : thank you for this list but I guess the use of scientific names would make the list much more useble ( esp. for foreign ZooChatters ) :).

    I am surprised how many public Aquariums successfully keep Moorish Idol, while so many private hobbyists fail miserably...

    Is there a requirement for what species you are adding to this list? I know these aquariums have a much larger fish collection than just the species mentioned here.
