What has housing fish in an aquarium got to do with my statement?

We don't have 'feeder fish' labelled as such in the UK.

No doubt some people will simply keep mum and just buy the fish and feed 
them to their Arowana or Piranha.

But you also are not suppose to be cruel to animals, it's against the law in 
Scotland (can't say if it's illegal in England. As that is a different 

So knowingly putting an animal in a situation where it will come to harm is 

Sounds reasonable to me no doubt due to my cultural up bringing.

Your view may of course be different if your culture told you different.
