I do try. I kind of looked at her and said 'mom...those are salt water fish. The fresh are over here' and directed her to the FW
section. She looked at a few she liked and I explained that I can't have flashier long finned fish because my betta may attack them. She then took our puppy to pick out toys.
Not going to get into details but I don't like my mother all that much. My dad and I usually work on tanks together and he helps me. Though I've had to teach him a few things that could've saved his tanks from years ago.
