That is so sad. What stunts the growth isn't the size of the tank, it's the nitrate levels in the water. That is also a slow and agonizing death for the fish. Unfortunately, fish like those usually die, too young, in store tanks and never find a home. If I can get enough signatures for my petition (it's posted in the announcements board), then places like that, incidents such as those, would be enforced by our animal cruelty laws. That is the sort of thing I am working so hard to put a stop to. For whatever the reason, the majority of our population still sees fish as a "disposable species", and they pay no attention to the amount of cruelty and neglect that is happening. If that were a large dog kept in a small kennel, they would get fines and end up shut down. Some things just aren't right, no matter how you look at it. Cruelty to animals is cruelty to animals, all the way around.
