Black fish

So after watching the documentary black fish on netflix about sea worlds captivity of orcas, I started thinking about if what we are doing such as keeping an aquarium is just as cruel..from what I read from PETA, it is... I feel so guilty.... Any thoughts???

Today only I picked up a fish from the local fish market which was just hours away from becoming food...I really don't see anything cruel in it....moreover, most of the fishes we keep in our tanks are captive bread, so as long as we are giving them an appropriate tank and proper water conditions, they are at home....still...this is what I feel and people can have a different point of view...

Think of it as saving them from the polluted rivers and streams of their origins. Then go to a Steak Restaurant in honor of PETA. Dueces!

I also think that my fish are safe from predators, something the do not find in the ocean.

I personally have no experience of keeping saltwater fishes, so wont comment on it and in case of freshwater fishes...as per PETA almost 90% is farm raised. They are specifically against keeping fishes in tiny bowls or cups, painting or tattooing them by injecting dye and I completely agree and support them in these cases. Moreover I keep cichlids and they are mostly territorial, so as long as I am providing them enough space to call home and claim a territory they should do fine.


Always open to feedbacks..!!!

I don't support keeping pelagic organisms like orcas in captivity but I'm fine when it comes to reef organisms like corals and aquarium fish

your first mistake is listening to anything peta has to say....

if a fish has plenty of room, plenty of food, proper water conditions, isn't harassed (taping on glass, over handling, proper tank mates, etc.) and a favorable set up (substrate, plants, hiding places, etc.) then it's happy...

We as human beings have made a great business of captivating and eating most all majestic creatures on this wonderful planet of ours.. As long as you're doing it on a classy manner.. PETA can get a little nuts over certain things.. If they ever saw the unicorn I keep in my bathroom.. Oh boy! It'd be war...
