    I always kind of assumed those bag sales are not all "new" fish, just ones they want to clear out before you know what

    Bag sales are notoriously new fish that have just arrived from a supplier. If they were old fish, I don't see a reason to bother to bag them up in the hopes they sell - just catch them at time of purchase.

    I am a little sad that places that practice such sales are still around, that they still get play on BAR, and that the idea that someone got one good fish from them outweighs the dozens or hundreds of bad fish gotten from them. Places like 6th are throwbacks to an earlier, less knowledgeable time in the hobby. Shudder.

    I've seen the owner literally back up his car at Aqua Traders and get fish that just came in for the infamous "bag sales." I wouldn't chance buying a fish from 6th ave...heard too many horror stories. :O

    it's not an animal, it's a "piece"
    an interesting and sad point of view

    Yes - and giving them any money at all, even for dry goods, allows the process to continue.
