All animal cruelty laws include the words "except fish" when describing what kind of creatures are covered by the laws subject to animal control or the health department on things like space requirements, food or just plain whether they can be poisoned or not. This loophole is more like a black hole where many different creatures from all over the world disappear so more can be sold without any laws to help them from being mistreated on purpose like other pets. Fish are mixed together and dosed with high concentrations of harsh chemicals not safe for humans or animals that would be protected from being poisoned so they will die later after the sale so more can be sold. Even the products that claim to help pet fish, corals and inverts do not have to do what they say and can even poison and kill the creatures because there is no laws or organizations to check the contents or causes no matter what they do. Seems to me sea creatures from around the world should have the same rights as other pets if they are to be sold as pets. Please share this information with your local animal control, health department, congressmen, newspaper and ask them to include pet fish in animal cruelty laws.
