If this fish was banned the red tailed cat would be too. get real, the people
who do the banning don't stop once they start. Don't get me started on how
many fish in the pet trade weigh several pounds in the wild or if given
enough room. Most people have ten gallon aquariums, Think what would happen
if all fish were banned that could not comfortably grow and live in a ten
gallon tank? It's really not far fetched, so many ten gallon tanks so few
bigger tanks, the PETA people would jump all over this.
