A lot of times the police are ignorant. They often cling to the "invasive species" argument -which is actually a legit argument.

Do you think there might be a fish association or pet store association - there usually is for different retail entities, to ensure particular standards.

I just think a fish have a little spirit. If you make them suffer, I just think they really suffer, not as some say that it's only their nerve system that make them act as if they suffer...

They probably won't prey god for suffering to stop, but I think they feel suffering and they don't want it. They're species like us that want to survive, the goal is the same.

Fish bowls and betta vases are still being sold too so there is bad conditions for fish in some stores and all the equipment a person needs to contionue keeping fish in bad conditions at home. Many people will keep fish in conditions like that and think if the fish lives for a few months that's ok they can just buy another one. My wife used to think that fish were doing well if they lived for six months.

To the OP call the BBB although it may not help with the condition of the animals it will make other people notice the problem. Also the BBB will tell you if and who you should contact about that. If it is a chain store call the national HQ if it is locally owned then continually put in complaints with the business association in that area.
