Should the industry be more regulated?

    Hi,

    So as the title suggests, my tuckshop now sells fish, and not just any type of fish... they’re selling Siamese fighter fish in these tiny tanks( they even to small for fry). And on top of that, the tanks have no filter, no heater, no nothing. And when I confronted the owner about possible ammonia poisoning and bad water quality all he said was, “I know.”
    The poor assistant was lost for words but then again, what could he do?

    Today, I realized how highly unregulated fish sales are and I’m gravely disappointed in the system.

    So my question: what can we do to stop this and regulate our hobby?

    Ohk, you have a point. Maybe we shouldn’t regulate it per say but at least have something in place. I mean, if all is good and well then cool but don’t let the fish suffer so you can make a penny or two. That’s just my 2 cents on the matter.

    BTW before you respond, consider that this is a public forum - and it is cool that you and I can have this exchange of ideas, the possibility that it could affect the livelihood of others means, in this day and age, one needs to be very careful how one positions oneself on topics and what the impact of the conversation about such topics could have not only on you but on those that might think it is about them.
