Thread: too HOT

  1. Default too HOT


    0 Not allowed!
    so I went to my LFS today and was looking around for my new rainbows. Found what I wanted only to be told they can't sell today cause its too hot and against the law. The temp at the time was 46c. Any one heard of this before?

    Nope but it sounds like an obvious transport issue, I doubt they are looking for reasons to not take your money..

    OTOH Maybe they are just tired of people coming back with dead fish on hot days and it's easier to say it's illegal.

    What did a google of OZ laws regulating aquarium fish sales tell you?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Did you call some other stores and ask them about it?

    What temp triggers it? How long this law has been around.. Etc..

    Never heard of anything like that here in the states. If you think about it, kind of makes sense. What 850R makes sense. Probably too many returns or complaints about fish dying on the drive home. Whenever I have to move fish in summer or winter, I leave them in a styrofoam container. Less of a temperature swing that way.

    Maybe you go early in the morning when temperatures are lower?

    Australia has some pretty specific codes

    However for Sydney the code reads specifically:
    Quote Originally Posted by Section 5.2 Environment

    temperature must not exceed 30 degrees Celsius and must not fall below
    15 degrees Celsius.
    Quote Originally Posted by Section 11 Transport

    animals, extreme temperatures and excessive stress.
    PDF LINK

    While the law in Sydney does not appear to ban sale at a specific temp, based on the combination of the laws regarding pet shop care of animals and transport after sale, I could see where they might find themselves in a bit of a pickle if they sold a fish on a hot day and it died.

    Prolly too many people buy them, go to lunch or do other shopping and the fish sit in a hot car and run out of oxygen. But if that was the reason, then they shouldn't sell fish here in the winter? :)

    Actually Hobbs... could you imagine if this particular clause was actively enforced in these parts?

    10.1.4 At the time of purchase of an animal, clients must be offered, at no charge,
    accurate written information on the care of animal purchased.

    10.2.3 Information required by Clause 10.1.4 should include information about:
    general care requirements of the species, including appropriate diet and
    feeding regimes
    usual life span of breed/species
    minimum requirements for humane shelter and accommodation
    minimum requirements for security of the animal
    minimum requirements for social contact with humans and with other
    animals of the same species
    minimum requirements for disease and parasite control/prevention
    how to identify and appropriately manage common diseases
    procedures for seeking emergency treatment for the animal, and the value
    of establishing a relationship with a veterinary practitioner and/or animal
    behaviourist or other experienced persons
    the estimated costs associated with providing food and shelter
    routine veterinary treatment that may be required for the animal(s), for
    example vaccination or parasite control
    maximum time an animal can be left unattended
    the expected behaviours of the species or breed, for example digging or
    scratching
    They even specifically address fish requirements! Including the encouragement of re-homing rather than releasing into the wild. And they have specific numbers requirements on the Maximum Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrates are allowable.
