Maybe since I've never bred fish to sell them, I couldn't envision what you see so easily. I buy fish to make a permanent home for them. If they shouldn't be in my tank at full grown size, I don't buy them. Again that's just my way of doing things and obviously your mileage may vary.

BTW, almost anybody can take care of a fish better than most lfs.
Even if he wasn't a seller does the exchange of money change anything? I don't think so. If he gives it to someone who can provide it with a suitable home I don't see a problem. Simply allows more people to enjoy that fish and ensures its not staying in a cramped tank.

While I agree most fish stores don't take great care of their fish, one near me does. They truly are animal lovers and take really good care of their fish. www.aquaticcritter.com

They take any fish in that you can't keep, injured, or just don't want even if it won't end up profitable for them. They really care for their fish.

Also there is a really big local fish keeping community around my area. I've talked to two people on these forums alone that live within 15-30 minutes drive. I know that's not the case for everyone, but if is for him it would not be hard to find that fish a loving home once its grown up.
