Just out of curiosity does anyone know why the Beautiful Firetails are banned in WA? Is it because of the risk of escapees hybridizing with the Red Ear Firetails?

Hey Saint, you're from Perth, aren't you? shouldn't a high level keeper like you with orange cheeks and blue caps know what the restrictions are?
