I know, right?! why should the land animals get more attention?! AQUATIC ANIMALS ARE ANIMALS TOO!

nice idea! can I do the poster thing? I love drawing bettas/goldfish/other aquatic animals.

hmm, what should we name the project? you decide, I'm out of aquatic ideas...

Seems like a great idea! Hope it works out for you guys. Little Leaf, do you know any other fish besides Goldfish and Bettas? We might as well have a project that rhymes. Like Cichlid ---. Or Betta ---. Or even Angelfish and Oscar ---. Something that rhymes would get some attention.

I agree, bettas need more good attention.

I still think the dogs and cat's housed there is important because they are shelter animals & so many animals are adopted through petco/petsmart. If it's a LPS selling puppy mill pups, that I totally disagree with.

You can join in the project, too! and I only know a few fish, I only like researching about bettas... We also need to start a date where we all do something together. (eg. we add ideas and one day we all suggest our ideas to a few pet stores (at least 2-3 maybe?) and then one of you make a thread explaning what you did and our posts will say: I suggested ____ to _ pet stores.)

the name of our project will now be: project aquatic attention.

if you agree, send a replay with a happy smiley and write in: "I agree!" in blue or orange or green, doesn't matter with the color.

Whoever posts here is part of the project, if you posted and don't want to be part of the project, send me a private message.

I agree 1000%. When the workers are around I tend to tell my mom about the tyed fish, te hybrids, the sick ones and how to take care of them. I'd love to spend a weekend volunteering there cleaning tanks. My bestie would love to do that. She asks me when she comes over if we can clean the tanks. Dont know whether I should be insulted or not but its fun! Until she tells you your fish jumped out . . . then you stuff the gravel down her shirt . . .
Anyway . . . Ill try to think of a poem to do. But I'm out this weekend so ill try to find the time.

What about making a website? You know, like focusing on 1 species such as Cichlids for a month and then the next month, Angelfish.
