Well I don't know. Why did someone dump the guinea I now foster outside in the cold by a dumpster? -.- because some people do not care for animals. They're just fads. Something fun to have for a week then sell to a glue factory or dump in a lake. Fish are "just fish". People eat them, people hunt them, people flush them. That is how they are seen
I came across an ad saying "my kids are bored of them and I haven't the heart to dispose of them" which is so stupid! Since I've owned fish for quite a while now, I know when I get kids they are NOT disposing of their animals! >:( not a lizard, mouse, fish or bird.
