point is that having a BS / BA is not considered "a lot of credentials"
I never said that a BA or BS was alot of credentials. I know because I don't think my BA is enough. What I am saying is that the average advanced aquarist tends to know more about aquariums than the average marine scientist. Although I do agree with Steve that the Job title is misleading.

Don't be so sure that I would be stuck on the chemistry, although with the physics I would definitly be a little rusty. As for the medical "shtuff," I would just tell you to rub some dirt on it and walk it off. I just guess that's the athlete.
