LOL, indeed I would tend to concure. I have a few of our troubled youth in my aquatic class, and many of them do very well. Right now, I have one who is in charge of my 65 gallon reef tank, and he is doing a great job. Most however would happily pour bleach into a tank just to see what happens
. I'm afraid I was far to busy drinking beer and racing cars in my troubled years to worry about a fish tank LOL. Of course there was wood to chop and coal to carry whenever I was a home, so fish tanks weren't something I considered at the time. I didn't get into aquariums until I started by second teaching job. Of course its been game on every since.
