I think we all need to take a step back, and look at all the animals , birds and fish we capture & remove from their natural habitat, and their mom's,, just so we can put them in a cage, or a bowl to look at. We need to leave these creatures alone. I know its mostly due to greed. Rare animals are amazing to see !!! So, going forward, lets make an effort to watch them threw the lens of a camera instead!!!!!

I'm all for closing all entertainment venues that exploit animals for profit. I will not go to any of these places.

This is again all about money!! These poor fish, seawater animals don't live long in captivity, it's such a waste of there small lives, this is so sad..... Don't visit places where we human can look at animals, it would help if we all stay away.... Signed and noted.

I cannot believe the video tapes attempted murder - multiple times!! It is apparent that the perpetrator is heartless as well as ruthless.

I love fish, but I would never have them in my place. They belong to the oceans, rivers, lagoons, etc.
