poor fiddler crabs :(

Walmart and Petco should not be allowed to sell fiddler crabs.

At Walmart they're stocked on the shelf like a box of crackers, and left to die. They're in little plastic tubs, and the dead ones are right there with them. I guess they don't practice 'first in, first out'.

At petco, they throw them in a freshwater tank with no access to land. When I voiced my concerns about this the lady showed me "how they can get on top of the filter if they want to". There's room for about 3 up there, and 15 in the tank.

These people need to be slapped upside the head.

Our local chain store also keeps them inappropriately. I had a talk with them about it but doubt it made a difference.
