Now THAT would be good
merchandising - you sell two or three fish instead of just one. Like
saying 2/$1 instead of 50 cents (this really works, BTW).

I could buy that, if you could convince me the box stores were actually
_interested_ in the fish as merchandise (or even as an animal) or for any
other purpose than a marketing expense for the dry goods, which are something
they understand the merchandizing for. Look-in-the tank floor space to dry
good floor space in any box store, and then compare that to a really good,
locally owned fish shop. Even-in-the big places that are outcrops from box
stores like Aquarium Adventure (Petsmart), they still have the floor space
heavy on the dry goods.

But then I'm pretty sure I've strayed way off topic, so I'll just shut up :)
