Fish are living beings, not artwork, yet some fish breeders “paint” fish by injecting fluorescent dye into their bodies or alter their genetic makeup to make them more attractive to buyers. Pet shops, discount superstores, florists, and even online catalogs sell “decorative” (Siamese fighting fish) in tiny cups or flower vases. The fish often live in just a few ounces of water, which isn’t enough to turn around in, much less swim in.
An estimated 95 percent of saltwater fish sold in pet shops come from the wild, mostly from the waters around Indonesia, the Philippines, Fiji, and other Pacific islands.(2) More than 20 million fish, 12 million corals, and 10 million other types of marine life—such as anemones, shrimp, and mollusks—are captured every year to support a $300 million worldwide “hobby.”(3) Some species, such as the Banggai cardinalfish, have become endangered because of overfishing, a practice commonly employed to satisfy the aquarium industry.(4)

Pet Fish for Sale: Tropical and Freshwater Fish | PetSmart
After spending the beginning of their lives in cramped tubs, fish are sold to , pet stores, and bait shops. Many will be forced to spend the rest of their lives in tiny bags or bowls, which don’t give them the space or oxygen they need to be healthy.I went by the Petco and Petsmart to look at fish for sale today here in Kingman AZ. Many varieties to consider, I'll probably get some fresh water tropical fishes, as I'm just not confident enough yet to try a salt water fish aqaurium. I have for now a Fluval Chi 5 gallon fish tank, just a catfish and small ghost shrimp in it. I'm thinking of setting up a 55 gallon tank, quite a jump in aquarium size. Pets Mart and Petco have different fish, well, some are, I'm just not sure which pet store is better. Yeah, one dead fish you see at the end of the fish video, from the Pet smart fish dept.
I'm glad that these pet stores are in town, otherwise it would be only Walmart. There wasn't much to choose from there at the Walmart Fish Department, and it looked like they don't care for the fish that well.
Not sure which of the 50 states you can find these pet shops, possibly in all fifty states here in the United States? In Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas California Colorado Connecticut Delaware Florida Georgia Hawaii Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia Wisconsin WyomingA man suspected of stealing fish from pet shops in Glendale and Burbank dating back to last year was arrested this week at his North Hollywood apartment, police said.Approximately 90 percent of freshwater fish are raised on farms.(8) Goldfish, for instance, are usually bred in giant tubs in facilities that produce as many as 250 million fish per year.(9) These animals are sold to zoos, pet stores, and bait shops, and many are doomed to live in plastic bags or bowls, neither of which provides the space or oxygen that goldfish need. The city of Monza, Italy, banned keeping goldfish in bowls because the containers do not meet the needs of the animals and because, as one sponsor of the law pointed out, bowls give fish “a distorted view of reality.”(10)
