A clear case of cruelty! Time to wake up.
i am no activist, not by a long shot. What i am is an animal lover. We can all agree that it is very politically correct and popular to hate puppy mills. they are horrible cruel places that produce sick and often terminally ill dogs. So what about feeder fish? no im not kidding.. they are living creatures with a right to life. instead they are cramped into a bare tank wit no regard for health or well being. I have to listen to fanatical preaching about tank size for a single fish, but no one mentions the 300 fish in a 50 gallon tank with almost no room to swim. gee whiz, i wonder who monitors the feeder tank ammonia levels! They are often so diseased that they cant even be fed to other fish without killing them! We are so jaded that its ok to tattoo fish and chemically enhance their colors...Look at the parrot fish for gods sake..we simply invented that one! lol i have kept some of the most apex predator fish imaginable ( snake heads), and i have never used a feeder fish for any reason..actually i have a few feeders in a 55 gallon tank just for fun..these poor guys dont live to long but at least they are happy. lets all wake up and treat the fish we keep with the compassion they deserve. take a second and axctually think about what iv said here.
