Grizzly Posted December 29, 2022 Share Posted December 29, 2022 Ok, a bit of a vent here and I could be completely wrong and I’m sure they are following the rules but here I go. I went to my local Petsmart ( only fish store in my town. Have to drive 45 minutes to an hour north or south to get to a LFS) and seen they had red clawed crabs. I have a growing fahaka puffer and thought I would get a few to try for him to eat. They make me fill out a form for purchase and I asked is this normal? And she said yes just not for the fish cause they are just fish! And I was jaw dropped that fish aren’t considered a pet to them but considering the dozens of dead fish in all there tanks I shouldn’t be surprised. I don’t shop there normally except for frozen fish food. The worker then asks me what size tank I have and I tell her they are going to be fed to my puffer so it really doesn’t matter. She says I will sell them to you but we’re not supposed to sell these as food. So I say next time I won’t say they are food then. I go to check out and the store manager stops me on the way out and says you know they sell frozen food to help wear down puffers teeth. I’m like yes I’m aware I have some . Mind you they don’t carry it there I have to drive 45 minutes to get it. Then the manager tells me they won’t be able to sell me the crabs any longer. Here is my position, why are feeder fish, feeder shrimp, crickets, and worms all ok to sell for feeding but crabs are not. If there is some law prohibiting them from doing it fine but it still makes No sense. Vent over but if I attempt to buy them again I won’t wear my co op sweatshirt with Murphy on it next time. Maybe they won’t remember me lol Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
