its a sad state of affairs, the lack of knowledge and the idiocy of people is a dangerous combo! it seems as though unfortunately fish are deemed disposable, unlike fluffy pets. if it dies, ah well go back, get your money back or another fish to kill.

Obviously tonnes of us out there really care, and that is great. but I bet the majority don't. or just are totally uneducated about fish and their requirements. it should be a requirement to have a license to keep fish.

i agree with you there people should need to prove their knowledge before being able to keep fish
