Ah, well mostpet stores other places don't do the things to fish I've seen latley but here 2 out of the 3 do. Ok, first i found a mandarin dragonet in one, the owner tells my husband he has him eating flake food but one look at the poor beauty and you could make out every bone in his skeleton. Second we got a "fresh water" moray eel the other day at a different store and the kid there says they are perfectly fine in completley fresh, but he added a little aquarium salt to make them more comfy/ Of course we bought one and he's now much happier in a brachish tank eating (very ferociously) krill. A little scary how much he likes that! But how many times am I going to find some poor little fishy that is sorley misunderstood wasting away in a pet store? I can't save them all! At least after i got the moray i had an excuse to buy a green spotted puffer who is getting along with the eel fine. oh well, i guess most pet stores just care about the bucks not the beauty of fish.
