Phosphates being dumped into the water. It's a huge issue around the world not just in our reef tanks. The specialty chemical companies are having to phase out phosphates so they don't enter the water systems and create nuisance algae. Maybe they need a big reactor with some Phosphate media in it :lol:

Im asian and I am telling you, China sucks. They say the USA sucks? Chinese government doesn't care about ethics, environmental issues, and human rights. All they care about is military and money.
So let's see here, this is the most air-polluted Olympics EVER, they dump multitudes of hazzardous materials throughout their natural water systems (affecting other asian countriers, mind you) and they "blame it on the rain".
Wow, these Chinese governments. Ofcourse we all know some crazy communist official (or two) literally put a gun on the scientists' head and made them blame it on the rain or else they and their families will die.
Yeah, China is growing in an unpresidented way. But there is NOTHING to respect about China ethically, humanitarian-wise, and environmentally. Somebody should kick them out of the UN Security Council and saction their butts.
I am Chinese as well, and the the culture is void of morals. Growth over anything. The polution, overfishing, human rights makes me sick.
One of the things that makes me sick is the penchant to just disregard life. If an animal was to go on the endangered species list, there is a good chance it would be ignored and just caught/eaten like everything else.
I cant say its an asian thing, more of a poor and uneducated thing.
Ive witnessed this on fishing trips on party boats as well. Even though there is literature and signs everywhere that say u can not keep fish under a certain length and how preservation must be kept to ensure future generations, this is completely ignored with some of the lower class citizens on the boat.
