I understand what you are saying phases, but when you buy a puppy from a pet store they tell you if they have their shots what they eat and usually give great advice on how to care for one. Why can't buying a fish be the same? LFS should be responsible and honorable enough to make sure that new owner know what the hell he/she is doing before they walk out of their store. That is their responsibility isn't it?

Hey Qshark! Place like that make me very angry. I cant stand to see poor fish in bad condition, and being sentenced to death by a lfs owner, selling them to sw newbs. I am glad you were there to help at least save the fish for the time being.
Thanks for standing up for the hobby.

This is exactly the thing that is going to fuel the coral consevation act. If they go into a couple of fish stores like that one they will have a field day bashing the hobby we have all grown to love. I'm lucky around here all the lfs's I have gone to have been excellent. You the man QS

QS, you should check out one of those cool magnetic nori clips sold by one of our sponsors. In ingenous idea. No more replacing clips due to ageing suctioncups. Oh and they float so no more digging to the bottom of the tank to reclaim one.

Which sponsor?
I have to have 2 so the kids don't fight.
One of them disappeared, can't find it anywhere. They make them for PH suctioncups too?
Thanks!

I had the same situation at the local Petco a couple of months back. Nice jobe for stepping in. I do think you should follow up with the store's owner and see if they have any justification for having uneducated employees. Nice work!!! 200 kudos for you!
