I just want to know what I can do about a local fish store here in Jacksonville, Florida.
DH and I walked in the other day just to scope what they had as we are hoping to set the new tank up around Christmas and since it's been a while there are a few new stores and so we took the day to explore them all and get aquainted with them and the owners.
I walked in and was SHOCKED when I began walking down the 1st SW
isle. I saw a 10g talk with 10 itty bitty hippo/regal tangs. 8 were dead! The other 2 were so pale they looked powder blue and were flopping over to their sides. I stood there waiting and waiting and this kid walks up, I tell him and say, ummm great... nothing new lady. Uhhh Hello? Hubby tugs my arm and knows I'm about to get all PETA on this guy and as he is pulling me down the isle I look and see 3 tanks side by side and they have Fox face puffers and their flesh is falling off in sheets! Yes, I swear to you , I have NEVER seen anything like this on an animal or fish... it looked like a burn victim with layers of flesh sliding off. So I'm standing there looking crazy and BTW
I'm very pregnant so I'm slightly hormonal anyways... and said OMG, what in the world? and the kid says, Man that sucks, who knows... He walks passed me and DH and says to the lady at the register (owner or manager I assume) she says well, get to flushingggg! DH pulled me out because he knows how strongly I feel and he asid he fears my lack of self control right now ... LOL
I'm just sick over it and want to turn them in, report them, something to make them take better care of these fish and all as they have no voice.
Ugh, ok, I'm done ranting... Please let me know who I can go to? Certainly there has to be someone that can enforce animal care rules on them or something.
