Sadly, this is just animal cruelty. You said you knew you got it too soon...... you were right.

Sad when you see inexperinced people doing this, we need to remember though we all started of somewhere so we cant shout at this poor guy. Let this be a lesson to all who are new do not put a fish in your tank till you have cycled it and to be honest dont put one in till youve checked its okay with people on here. We have nothing to gain on giving you false information but as sad as it is lfs do. Do your reasearch !

ilostnemo I used to live there, its not all that common but it certainly is advice given out in many lfs', it's also quite common to hear "let it sit for two weeks and come back".

GREAT to hear. You did the right thing. If you can get your LFS to hold him maybe you can get him back when you upgrade!!!! . DONT GET HIM BEFORE THE 125 IS UP AND RUNNING THO. He is Far to large for a 20g even at that size. I hope you can get him back. Grouper are AMAZING fish and the honeycomb grouper is my personal fav. of all the fish I have. Good Luck with your tanks, and feel free to ask ANY questions. BTW, I was misinformed also and cycled the tank with chromis, all died, I feel so bad now. Sadly some of us have to learn the hard way.

Agreed

He took the fish to get"checked" was told everything was ok and seems he brought the fish back home bc he was told the tank was cycled. I may feel bad for the fish but if people don't want to listen to sound advice it's there money they are wasting if he wants to waste money on killing fish bc he doesn't want to listen then honestly nothing can be done until he wises up and learns from his mistakes.
