I had never thought to try to find things she can do to help me with the tank, other than feeding. Tomorrow is water change day and maybe I can find ways she can help.

This is funny: I am still a relative newbie with fish and they don't tend to live their full lives (I am working on this). Four year old says to me "Some parents make their kids happy by having their fish live longer." This after we had lost two fish in two weeks and I was already smarting. Ouch. Just what I needed for my fish keeping ego...additional guilt from my child.

Great thread! It's great when kids love to help out. My 8-year-old cousin likes to help me too when she comes over. She likes to mix the saltwater for water changes and doesn't let me use a powerhead to mix it cause she likes to stir it herself. She had her own betta at home too but it died so now she's going to try and cycle the tank herself.

I love it.. i wanted to curse the guy out but that woulda been no example to set. Even when her mom has off she still asks to come over and feed the fishys. We are getting her a 55 tomorrow and use media from my filter to cycle it. How does 2 angels, 2 gbr, 2 br, and a gold nugget pleco sound maybe a silver dollar or 2? ( she love my angels and gbr)

Isn't it a bit sad how all these little kids are more knowledgeable about fish than most pet store employees?

Yes. But on the bright side, in like 20 years the pet shops may be staffed full of smart fish people.

Not all pet shop staff know nothing about fish. I like to think I have a good team at mine.

Not all pet shop workers know nothing. I like to think my staff are knowledgable.
