Are you saying fish aren't considered pets like cats and dogs?

I think they are, but no. Most people consider fish expendable, or something to eat.

Pretty much...when the ASPCA monitors movie sets to make sure animals are not harmed, for some reason it does not extend to fish and bugs...

Actually... I read where they showed up to a movie set... I can't believe I'm forgetting the name of the movie, I hate names, I can never remember any names!!!

Anyways, this dog was being fed a maggot... they said it was being cruel to the maggot, and demanded that a maggot that died of "natural causes" be found and used instead.

I feel this is silly... but then again, where do you draw the line? Most people draw it to leave out fish and smaller life forms.

Makes you wonder where they are when "Fear Factor" is filming, then, eh?
