OK, I have gotten used to going into different fish stores and getting different opinions on reef keeping and fish care from different people, but when i get 2 totally different opinions about the same subject from the same person i start to wonder if he knows what he is talking about.
3 weeks ago, i go into my LFS
and meet with a couple of reefkeepers i know and we start talking about keeping healthy fish and using garlic in their food. The owner of the LFS
is privy to this conversation and he chimes in saying that ALL the additives and garlic suplements for fish are useless. He said that they are no more than snake oils that fish owners are duped into buying for their tanks and that they are worthless.
Fast foward to today, I walk into the store looking for a PH test kit and i start talking with the owner of the fishstore about my fish wiht ick again. He tells me that the best thing i could do is to use Garlic Guard in all of my fish's food.
He even said that he uses it in all of the food that he feeds to the fish in the store.
I didnt confront him on his inconsistant stories I just let him talk.
I was already using Garlic Guard in my fish's food.
Has anybody else had to deal with a store where they cant keep their stories straight? I'd like to hear it, and i'd bet others will get a good laugh out of it too.
