Things that really annoy me!!!!

working in aquatic reatail is here these phrases alot:
"if it dies we will get another one"
"hopefully we will keep this one alive"
"it doesnt matter its only a fish"
and many many more.............................................. ..
I need to let out my anger at these sort of sayings and just say how is it possible to get into these ignorant peoples heads that fish are living creatures that deserve a healthy and well cared for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Peace always..

If you worry you die, and if you don't worry you still die..... so why worry?

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