PETA would never do that. Their intent is to have NO pets. NOTHING in captiviity. Also, as everything i've seen on them anyway, they would rather just kill as a way to save the fish.
this may be a bit late but PETA must just take the lowest of the low pet shops and think there the gold standard for pet shops. an arowana ina 10 gallon (how is that possible) is different from a shool of danios and such in a 55 gallon. PETA acts like taking captive breed animals and giving them a safe home is a horrible crime, where leting a species go extinct is more noble. theres a name for that: complete apathy for the environment. now i dont support selling of lear's macaws or jaguars as pets, when they are hardly seen anywhere in the world, but if a species, say the timber wolf; goes extinct in the wild, how else would we bring it back but by breeding zoo stock? PETA is just a group of radicals and '60s burnouts looking for something to do.

I think my favorite thing about that article, is how it suggests a number of times to talk to the store employees about the specific care for the fish, which we all know is a death trap for the fish. And not to mention, after them saying that pet stores are more or less evil.
