More profit for them. When it comes down to it most chain stores just want your money. They need it, really. And if they can sell you things you don't need or unhealthy fish, they probably will.
That's not to say all fish store fish are sick or that all stores or sales persons are bad. Some truly care about the fish.
Unfortunately, money makes the world go round, not healthy pets.
