Another petition for better point of sale advice, labelling.

Postby pyromaniac » Mon Mar 17, 2008 3:25 pm

Yes - another petition, after having read through Free's petition and signed up to it, I decided maybe another one may be beneficial - along the same lines as Free's but a slightly more lengthy one.

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Fishkeeping/

Free is happy for me to post mine up alongside his, and hopefully the Admin are happy to let me post this too.

Please feel free anyone and everyone to copy the link and make it known in any other forums you frequent, as the more the merrier that join in this 'campaign'

regards

Gerry

I think it is also worth mentioning the environmental impact that lack of sale advice can have also.
Many people are sold coldwater fish that grow beyond their keeping abilities, including basic goldfish (carp) species and let them 'run wild' into watercourses when they can no longer keep them.
This sort of thing could be greatly reduced with more sales information.
I realise you are unlikely to find a Ray or Angel in your local river, but there must be species that can cause these problems.
Currently...

3 Cherry Barbs
1 Golden Pearlescale Freshwater Angelfish
6 Corydoras sterbai
1 L Cat (Not sure on the number!)

These are the sole survivors of my disabled son adding carvol oil to the tank! :(

Firstly, Hi everyone, I'm new here but I will probably upset a few of you, so here goes........
As you are all "hobbyists" I'm sure you all have loads and loads of books on the subject of fish keeping, and if you're reading this you obviously have access to a PC or lap top with its "wealth of information" that is available. So surely before you go to your local fish dealer to buy your next acquisition you do your homework first right? obviously not. Would you buy a car without reading the brochure first, I didn't think so!
I think everybody nowadays is always looking to pass responsibility for their actions on to someone else, I'm afraid there is no excuse for buying a fish and not knowing how big it will get or the required conditions the poor creature needs or even "i bought convicts and found frontosas" not knowing what the fish even look like!, geeeeeze!
So even if you do see a fish you would like to buy on the spur of the moment, I think you'll find most fish dealers have a supply of books in the shop for you to look at before parting with your hard earned cash. Don't forget that the shop owner is there to make money at the end of the day and will probably assume you have done your research.
So, "DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST" and then made an informed buying decision.
If you do find a "Good" dealer support them and tell everybody else about them, the cowboys will soon disappear.
P.S. For the record, I do not have affiliation or connection with any fish dealer anywhere. Honestly!
Rant over.
I started out with nothing and still got most of it left!
