So, you're saying to leave a fish at the store to die or get picked by someone else in the area who might end up killing it in general? At least I know that I'm providing a good life for my fish. Call it inhumane or whatever you want, but I can't change my water to suite every fishes needs. I'm not going to use pH buffers or any of that crap and which someone else who could provide worse conditions for the fish most certainly wouldn't provide. I'm not going to be a god to my fish, so congrats on apparently seeing yourself as one with yours. I'll stick with what I know about fish and provide the best care that I possibly can while still keeping my tank MY tank and keeping it enjoyable.
Technically, I don't have to explain anything to forum people, but I do because I'm interested on peoples' thoughts on my tanks. I don't need people jumping on me and pulling my ears to tell me what to do and how. I'll do what I please and I don't have to listen to anybody. Sorry for being stubborn, but, like I stated, I'm not going to bend over backwards just to please people I don't even know.
