Who manufactured the tank? Check because there very well may be a warranty on it.if there is, just contact the manufacturer and they will replace it free of charge

Oh my gosh!!! I'm just so sad that people out there suck so hard at their jobs!! I've worked retail before and it's awesome and fulfilling if you are good with people and have some basic skills like tact.

I'm sorry they were so out of line, definitely yelp the whole story. Yelp is a very very good tool and a much needed reality check for business owners. Nobody should be talked to like that in a store, never ever ever.

I am the queen of "is your job description to be helpful or am I in the wrong place? I would be happy to yelp about my experience today, which I hope you enjoy reading with your boss tomorrow. I'm sure he can help you prepare for your next opportunity to make a sale, if you need some help learning how to perform without driving away customers."

I'm rarely this mad, but checking people who act cocky is a secret joy of mine, I love it! They just make the best faces while squirming and realizing the situation is going down. I'm going ream you, you can see it in my eyes, and I really love a big crowd when it happens.

My S/O is the opposite but ill jump right in and remind the rude person that I NOTICED THE ATTITUDE. I usually just drop "well thanks for your polite answer, why don't you try again so I can hear the professional response I was expecting?"

Haha I remembered another one, some dumb kid told me his store didn't sell any compost pails, then I found 5-6 versions on my own and asked who the manager was and told the manager "your employee Brad is sending away your customers and has no interest in the stock you carry and also seemed like the question I asked him was not worth any effort and gave me orders to shop elsewhere.. Is he your son? Did you plan to make a profit or is this a hobby-business for you? I have a business myself, so I thought it was only fair to let you know you just lost my dollars and the lifetime customer you were able to serve today.

The live sand will be fine for your tank, even if its not a reef. I have a yellow watchman goby, and he's a pretty yellow with blue dots. He always looks grumpy. Blennies are great too, I have a starry blenny, but there are algae blennies, bicolor, and a bunch of other types. A couple of cardinals would be nice in a 28g. Firefish are super cute too. And I love my yellow headed jawfish. Funny to watch!!

Ok thats a relieve wont have to worry about that, we are going to use sea water from petco seems to be a conveint thing at the moment one lil less thing to stress about ( getting the salt right) but my husband kinda made a big promise to our son ( he promised him if we get this tank right he`ll make the empty 75g we have in our basement a salt water tank so he can have a flame angle daddy makes big promises that mommy has to make come together) we`ll see how we do with this one. Two of my older children are now wanting salt water tanks so i guess for there income tax present they r getting protein skimmers new filters n new lights, the rest they will have to earn. And than i will be mixing water. Oh boy this mama loves her kids much but havnt been able spend much time with my gilled friends latley.:-(

This is part of the reason why i love fish keeping so much. Its such a rewarding lifestyle that it usually pulls other family members into it, allowing a family a chance to bond and spend time together

I couldnt agree more. My sons doc was more than willing to let him have his betta in his room with him. Our betta was a community member but hadda buy him a vacation tank (lol) so he cud stay wit my son. Wen i go hm to see my other children the first thing we do together is water changes n scrub glass even tho we make it a messy it dnt matter bc we are having fun n thats all the matters to me those lil smiles n than after we clean each tank we sit in front of it n talk about the fish (we always have 1 fish in each tank that tries 2 b a bad *** )

We sud be getting the new cube today wooo if it does come in my hubbys gunna come down n take tmw off so i can go up n get it going. Hopfully its not leaky again.

Cardinals he likes those if i recall right theres a speices of them that is white n black striped right i think it starts wit a B? Are they good with clowns. I dnt really want any fish over say 4 inches max (dnt want any one cramped) also in petco we saw a chocolate chip start fish on there lil card says 5 inches max n every where i research says over a ft? I was thinking bout getting the clown from petco until i realized they are all misbard ( not saying that bad bc i lk sum of the misbared shaped but wen ur paying 40$ for a clown i kinda want his stripes right) i think we are gunna order from liveaquara ( stupid this wont let me correct spelling) as we can order the blk n wht O clown as a juvi n watch it change from orange to black which is wat my son wants to see it grow n change. They have a blennie at my ifs thats 50% off bc every1 says hes ugly n wont buy it :-( so i will prolly get him love how he swifts threw the sand. Would a goby n a blennie get along or r they a no go together?

Wud it b over stocked if i we did say the 2 clowns 3 b cardinals a blennie n a goby (if theyd get along n if they sudnt go together maybe a firefish or a 6 line wisse) gunna do a lil more research.)

My son said hi (durring chemo we do our research together he likes all ur suggestions
