Ok went to my LFS
today to purchase a PH
to circulate my tank with my RO
water. I actually had to go back cause the PH
was faulty. I wanted to purchase some more LR
, I only have 30lbs. in a 60gal. tank and from what i've been reading on AA I could benefit from some more. So I was asking some kid that worked there
, about putting more LR
in and he says "why do you want more LR
?" I said from what I was reading that my tank would benefit from more LR
. He asked if it was fish only, I said for now it just finished cycling, he then asked how long did it take to cycle I said about 2 weeks everything spiked and went back down. Thats when he started talking to me like I was stupid "OH NO
... IT WILL SPIKE AGAIN AND PROBABLY A 3RD TIME". Is he right? He also said if its fish only you dont need LR
at all... I told him I wanted to possibly add an Anemonie and some more inverts later...OH NO
!! IF YOUR FISH EVER GET SICK YOU'LL NEED TO PUT COPPER IN THE TANK AND IT WILL KILL EVERYTHING ELSE. I then asked if thier LR
was cured or not he said "cured but some is uncured"
It was all in the same tank Is that right?? Somewhere in the conversation I asked if I put more LR
in the tank will it begin to cycle again he said "no....well... maybe...it depends" THe whole time he never was looking me in the eyes he was looking all around the store, that to me makes me think he was not truthful or didnt know what he was talking about.
Sorry about the rant (prolly not the forum for that) but he just made me feel a little
, then very
after I left.
I hope he's wrong in the stuff that he told but regardless I'm not going back there just for the way he talked to me, and I already gave them $1000 of my $$.
