I just wanted to share this and thought the beginners forum might be the best place to do it. I went to the pet store today to get 3 Black Skirt Tetras and 2 Cory Catfish. A guy came up to help me and I told him what I wanted and if he could use two nets to get my fish out. I then had to go chase my son down an aisle. (Pet Stores are his favorite. I swear if it was up to him we would have every kind of pet in the store. He's working me and his dad on a frog right now. lol) I come back to see the guy climb down the ladder, walk around his tray and pick 3 Black Skirt Tetras out of the net with his hand and drop them in the bag. Then he set the net with still 2-3 Black Skirt Tetras in another tank and let them sit there in the net. I got the chills, my chest expanded and my stomach tightened up. I asked him to put those fish back and that I would be back another day for my Black Skirt Tetras and that if he took the Corys out of the tank like that I'd be asking for his manager. Well, he did a better job of getting my Corys out after I explained to him what I wanted him to do. I cannot stress to you how important it is that fish be removed from a tank properly. If I felt the way I did by just watching that, how do you think those fish felt? They are chased around a tank, caught by a net, pulled out of the water, then put into a small bag, put in a car and driven home which isn't always the smoothest transformation and put into a new tank. It's pretty stressful on them so when buying your fish PLEASE do not be afraid to speak up and make sure they remove your fish in the best way possible. It will help with their stress level and the chance of them living longer. Plus, by you speaking up you might help other customers realize that the fish don't need to be removed that way.
