I guess after awhile, you start to expect people to be this stupid. I over-hear so much awful advice and horrible set-ups that it honestly doesn't surprise me anymore. It's sad, really sad. If only people could be arrested/fined for this animal cruelty.

But that's just the thing. Abuse a dog or a cat and the Australian RSPCA can and do fine people or take animals from people.

Fish just seem to be overlooked and you are laughed at if you show a little compassion for them.

For me... I don't have a choice. I have to hold it and hold it good.

I would argue fish are overlooked due to their significantly decreased capacity for higher intelligence relative to mammals and other miscellaneous animals.

How do I hold my tongue? I get over it and move on. The planet doesn't stop spinning for a guppy, and you can't fix stupidity. If people are prone to abusing other humans against the will of the masses, what is to make us think that ANY level of reasoning or convincing argument can sway an ignorant individuals basic viewpoint of fish, an (arguably) vastly inferior type of life-form.

Just my two cents.
