The UK seems really good to fish in general, probably most of Europe is. I know stores don't keep betta in cups there, and I don't think they have tiny designer betta tanks either. I remember someone from the UK on here couldn't get over it when they saw a photo of a betta in a pet store cup.

I am pleased that my country is so good with animal cruelty cases. I read about these guys in my paper the other day and it was a great victory. I love PFK and read some brilliant articles about fish behaviour and such lately. It has opened my eyes greatly. I cant believe the US sell fish in cups! Here they are in their own 1 gallon tanks and are treated pretty well. The fish specialist stores are great and have excellent staff. We are widely known as a nation of animal lovers :)

I wish I'd got into fish before I left the UK. Australia seems to be better than America (some shops, anyway - I call hatred down on most Pets Paradise stores for their treatment of their fish and other animals!) but I think the UK trumps here.
The UK certainly has a better rat market. www.equinecaninefeline.com ftw.

Life.

I think it's because of how strong the fish hobby is in the UK.
Plus, America is still dealing with constant cases of dog fighting, don't think anyone has time to care about fish Dx
