Never go back.....
On Monday I took my two I.D. sharks (pangasius catfish) to a large fish store so they could be 're-homed'. I said goodbye to DeNiro and Bruce; they were non-agressive, each about 7 inches in length, and very very active in my tank.
Yesterday, I returned to the same fish store, and saw what I think was DeNiro (no sign of Bruce), in a tank, for sale. His nose looked like it was all beat up; it looked as if his whiskers were missing
. I just felt sick. If you give your fish to a store, never, ever go back. It is just heartwrenching. I stood in front of the tank, watching what was once a very active fish, now looking sick. As tears welled up in my eyes, I silently apologized to him.
