Before I knew any better, I used to beg my parents to buy me “pet” fish from pet stores. We’d bring them home and dump them into a probably-not-big-enough tank—and for some reason, we found joy in watching them swim in pitiful, endless circles.
Back then, it didn’t occur to me that there was anything wrong with condemning a tropical animal, who would swim freely in nature with no boundaries, to life in a 10-gallon glass prison. As it turns out, there is SO much wrong with it.
Bottom line: Buying animals, including fish, from pet stores supports industries that treat animals as nothing more than merchandise and sends a message that animals’ lives are only worth what we’re willing to pay for them.

This is disturbing on several fronts. The major chains seem to be popping up all over the place, displacing the smaller Mom and Pop shops who simply can't compete with the larger chains because of the discounts they get from bulk purchases and more streamlined operations. One of the major drawbacks from this trend is the knowledge that is being lost at the point of sale. We need a poll on this, but we'd be willing to bet that if given a choice between purchasing from a Mom and Pop local fish store or from one of the major chain pet stores, most would choose the Mom and Pop shop.
