子日: 學而不思則惘; 思而不學則怠

He who learns but does not think is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.
~ Conficius

Like any field of learning, it is important for the avid goldfish hobbyist to keep improving on knowledge and techniques. The most common sources of information are from the books and the Internet. In many literature, the author’s experience, skill level, cultural background and environmental conditions are very different from the reader's context. Nevertheless, it provides much valuable information for learning and reference. Understanding the principles of why some things are done in certain ways enables us to adapt the techniques suitable for one’s lifestyle and environment as the saying goes:

"Learn all the rules so that you know how to break them properly". Ethical issues aside, it underscores the importance of flexible adaptation in the quest for knowledge.

However, adaption does not mean taking short cuts as many people have failed to understand the importance of hygiene and proper quarantine. There is a universal rule about this hobby that one should not even think of breaking – proper quarantine. Believe me, this is one sin with a long shadow that will definitely catch up with the culprit :)

I have a few batches of fries to keep me very busy now. With the use of live feeds, it is more crucial than ever to observe strict hygiene rules to prevent any epidemic outbreak. One careless act could mean restarting the game all over from square one again!
