  2. Re: Gara Rufa fish spa: need information regarding objections to

    My issue is the exploitation of animals for human use. And the fact they are over crowded in empty tanks. We wouldn't condone a pet goldfish in a tank, therefore these fish shouldn't be kept in...

    While I agree it wouldn't be for vegan reasons, I don't like to think of vegan taxes paying for dairy to be forced onto kids. I do understand your general argument, however surely children from less...
