Thanks. I believe that as a pet owner, whether they're big or small, it's your responsibility to care for them. I know fish owners who have opted to let their fish die to save money and just buy new fish later. To me that's akin to cruel and unusual punishment and is a sign of a careless and selfish owner. Fish may not be the brightest bulbs in the shed, but they deserve a good life, especially when they're held captive in a tank many times smaller than their natural environment.
Already looking forward to starting a second tank of more colorful & aggressive fish, now that I've realized how to stock a community tank. Going to start another thread on that soon :)
