Quality Pets Inc. supplies Green Spotted Puffer Fish to Walmart, who sell them to the general public as "throw away" pets. Puffers are wild caught and shipped from poverty stricken areas of Eastasia, and need to have live or frozen food, Puffers are willfully and knowingly starved to death, because Quality Pets Inc has instructed Walmart to feed them fish flakes.
Puffers demonstrate emotional intelligence, and are higher evolved as hunters. This makes them a BIG SELLER because their "personality" makes them entertaining. Like canine's, they have an affinity for humans, so are referred to as "wet puppies" . This is why Quality Pets wants them in Walmart. So they can sell more fish and Walmart can sell more of Walmart's exclusive brand Aqua-Culture. Walmart is not equipped to care for them. The associates are untrained and often accidentally kill puffs, by netting and suspending them in air when transferring them to bags. They don't know to warn buyers that puffers are semi-aggressive, and must have fully cycled brackish tanks,or that they need real food ,not flakes, to survive.
Puffers also excrete Tetrodotoxin the 2nd most lethal neurotoxin found in vertebrates. There is no antidote, and no WARNING label at Walmart.
Green Spotted Puffers are netted in the wild and there has been No Impact studies on the effects of over-fishing, and industrialization, on their populations, even though their habitat has shrunk by one third.
Quality Pets has intentionally misinformed Walmart about Puffers.
Tell Walmart to TELL QUALITY PETS: NO MORE PUFFERS at WALMART!
