Just saw this post and I have to say this is probably my biggest pet peeve in this hobby. I often wonder how they would like to be forced underwater to have their picture taken.I've been on the hunt for fish lately and I've come across a few sites that post pictures of fish out of the water. When I see it displayed like that I find something disturbing about it, which makes me not want to buy from the LFS/Online store. Part of me thinks that the store doesn't have tanks to hold the fish or they are a fish farm that really doesn't care about the health of the animal I'm tyring to dispel some of these assumptions PLEASE HELP.
A couple of notes:
- I'm curious if anyone else has this reaction?
- Would you buy from the store?
- Do you know why they do this?
I know fish can be out of water for short periods. This is not a complaint post I'm trying to figure out why I have this reaction and if anyone else shares it. I care about my livestock so the minimal amount of stress that I can cause them the better.
