Where else would you get fish? And I agree with Rookie, how on earth does not selling a fish save a puppy or kitten?

I'm not saying I'm agreeing with this, but my interpretation is that since fish are mass bred, people think it's ok to mass breed puppies (puppy mills). So by reducing the amount of fish sold, they think it will set an example for puppy mills. Idk if that's right or not but that's what I'm getting out of, I don't necessarily agree with it

I know, I don't get their reasoning on this either. It's just something that popped up in the news feed on my phone and hopefully will not be actually taken seriously or be considered in the future.

Same here ^, however I would agree with a law that requires you to prove that you can take care of the fish

True, some LFS out there, I'm sorry to say, are just out there for the money itself. They don't tell customers about cycling, or what could go wrong, or incompatibility. This is why we need, no not more responsible fish owners, but more responsible employees at the LFS that need them.

I wonder if this law will put shops like Aqua Forest Aquarium out of business too? Maybe they'll move up to Marin so I don't have to cross the GGB to shop there .

Its okay, this is a poorly written law that will probably need some major revising and editing before it can be put into place.

I wouldn't... we have too many laws as it is now. We have laws regarding fishing, catching fish for aquarium use, etc...

The fact of the matter is, the way this is written, it is to 'save the puppies'.... it's not going to in any way.

No, but laws will only burden the hobby... it's illegal to mistreat children, but it happens every day. Laws only do so much.
