I'm so over people not treating fish lives as equal to any other animal.

I guess that's just the vegan in me, but geesh. If you are going to own lives be responsible. Please. I'm not entirely sure why you would think to post this on such a fish advocate support group.

Sorry if I sound harsh but some people need a wake up call. I get that in this hobby mistakes are made and fish die or get sick, but to have them literally smashed for no reason is quite different.
For one.. The fish were dead. The tank was once an on going tank.. I had to tear it down because of a complete snail overhaul. I got Tetras to go in it with my Betta and ADFs. I have an easier time cycling because I have well water fed from an underground stream.

I did my research, and assumed that they would be fine in the earlier stages of fish-in cycling considering that it had been a few days since the tank was already up housing a Betta and 2 ADFs.

I honestly didn't think that after telling my son 'don't touch the dead fish in the bag, we have to take them back so we can get new ones' he was gonna turn around and smash them with a PLAY Hammer. He knows not to play on the fish tank..

It was more along the lines posted to see if I was the only person something along the lines of this has ever happened. I've seen where parents with kids thought it was a good idea to drop their toys inside the tank for the fish.

lol- It's okay.
I think those fish weren't a good bunch anyways.. I stopped in to get some Frog food and the kids always want to look at the fish. Half of their wall had signs on the tank saying they were treating the tanks and the fish inside w. signs on them could not be bought.
I posted about it in another thread. I'm SUPER PO'ed about it because I lost my Male Betta I got as a baby, this morning.

I have a 3 year old an an 18 month old. I do water changes when they in bed. They help with feeding and that's it. They know not to touch the tank as will 'scare the fish'
