So true, Erin. Years ago, the first time I kept SW fish, I would go to an aquarium on 6th Ave in SF Sunday mornings. They had their 'bag sale'. Fish were REALLY cheap. I couldn't keep any of the fish I bought there alive. I'm a slow learner so I went back a few times. On one trip I was talking to a fellow customer. She said, "The prices are great but the fish don't last". The tone in her voice was like she was talking about any live consumable like cut flowers. She had no expectation of them living for any length of time. It dawned on me that she was their target customer. Buy them like they are cut flowers. I didn't buy any fish that day and I've never been back!
