I cannot eat fish anymore...

Ever since I started keeping fish I learned I cannot eat them... I keep thinking of my cichlids when I night into something fishy... Am I the only weirdo?

I keep fish and I absolutely love eating them!(not the ones I care for ) and fishing for them. They're my favorite food. I've actually thought about this on several occasions. It's weird how I can keep them as pets and want them to be healthy yet also eat others.

So I am a weirdo. I knew it. Yeah I just cannot do it anymore.... Use to love it. It's not an emotional thing because they are things I care for... I care to make my fish happy in the environment I create for them but I don't love them the same as a dog... But maybe I'm starting to lol. Anyway I just cannot eat them because I think of the fish...

I don't like fish to begin with(eating) but all my life I have kept fish and loved going fishing. I was raised on "keep what you eat" so needless to say I do a LOT of fish and release.

As far as the way I feel about keeping fish. I look at it as it is,(to me) a hobby. And possible investment that could see some $ turn around. I have kept fish for extended amounts of time,(5 years+) but I also have no qualm selling a fish off after a year to start a new adventure with this hobby. I like and want to keep so many different types of fish but only have so many tanks. So I have for the past 5 years or more been doing a yearly cycle of new fish(mainly SA/CA cichlids) it wasn't until the past two or 3 I started learning about the more Un common species.

I think I'm the opposite. I would probably eat dog if they weren't kept in cruel conditions. For me it's really about the animal's quality of life. I'm still going to consume no matter what. I can't avoid killing living things.
