You actually didn't do to bad, you'll like the turbos once you get algae, skunk shrimp are one of the coolest creatures in the oceans, I would take the star back though.

I went to a pet store around the corner from me that pushes puppies like crazy. They practically tackle you when you walk in and hand you cute little puppies. I said to one of the girls who was trying to talk me into one "it's very sad that 90% of the puppies sold end up in shelters only to be euthanized after just a couple weeks", and she said, yes, it is sad. She still works there though.....I guess the 7 or 8 dollars an hour she makes is more important than the puppies.
The longer I live, the more people I meet that just don't care. Don't trust anyone who stands to gain anything by the outcome of your decision.

Well I'm gonna take the starfish back. I called the lfs and spoke with the owner. Who wasn't there last weekend. He said under no circumstances are his employees to push livestock on anybody. He told me his worker that was there Saturday was just filling in for his regular in store specialist. The guy who sold me the crap is his on the road maintenance man

I also have some swampland I can sell you cheap.

So, the road maintenance man, who gives advice and is encouraged to sell things to all the customers who's tanks' he's taking care of, is not familiar with livestock? How does he take care of people's tanks if he doesn't know anything of marine creatures? Does he tickle the backs of the lionfish when he's changing their water?
