The aquarium needs cleaning and the kids have lost interest in the fish.  Or the frogs. Or the gecko. 

But flushing or dumping everything outside is a bad idea for two reasons:  one, it's inhumane for the animals and two, it's a really bad idea for the environment.

The same hardiness that makes milfoil and goldfish such great aquarium dwellers means they also excel as  invasive species. 

So Minnesota Sea Grant, Animal Allies Humane Society, World of Fish and The Snake Pit have teamed up with Habitattitude for a guilt-free, no-questions-asked special adoption event this Saturday.
