Comets/Commons (the long ones) need 55 Gallons for the first fish and 10-20 Gallons per additional I believe.
Goldfish change their colours when they grow bigger, the 4 I've owned have "shifted" their orange spots but none of them actually disappear to turn white. My goldfish, Dea, used to have 4 perfect symmetrical diamonds on her tail, now they're just random splotches, xD.
I don't think Lupin comes online anymore, I PM'd him when Nigel was looking a little lazy and he didn't respond? Or maybe something happened on my end, I dunno xD
That's not right! My neighbor likes to fish, I don't cos it hurts them. So anyway, they were fishing for fish to eat, so when they caught some freshwater bass (I think it was bass) they put them in a cooler filled with ICE! Just to keep the "meat fresh"! It must have been torture for them. When they took them out to fillet them, they were still flopping around! WITHOUT SKIN/"MEAT" on them. I felt so sick. What was really sick was that my neighbor was laughing about it. He is responsible and wants a gourami and WILL take good care of Him/Her, but it was this story that led me to realize, WTH is going on with animals? We know they can feel pain, yet we continue to injure them! We wouldn't DREAM of doing iT to a human, si why animals? I've gone vegetarian now, not because I don't want to eat meat, I just disapprove of how many animals/why/how we are killing them. Humans are MEANT to eat meat, but it needs to be on a Need to eat basis, not kill 100's of pigs/cows/poultry daily.
Ok, fine you neither!
That sucks Neil, but some people aren't as sensitive to the pain of other animals, you can't help it.. He sees the bass as food but the gourami as a pet, he's raised that way.. It's not wrong or right.. In fact lots of people believe if you want to eat meat, kill the animal yourself.. Don't make others do the dirty work. :/ Although the whole flopping around thing is just sad :(
Agreed. but the meat we eat is gotten in the same way we just don't see it happen. You can't humanely kill everything, that would take forever and all the food prices would skyrocket. That would cause more of an outrage than "a few tortured fish".
Yup yup.. I've seen what they do in slaughter houses, I'm surprised it didn't put me off meat.. Even in the wild the prey animals aren't exactly killed humanely.. Being strangled by a lion is probably not how a gazelle would want to die but it's because we have a conscience we feel bad :(... It's pretty normal for the animal kingdom.
