Conversations at the LFS

I think there's a new guy at the local chain LFS. Aparently he's been in fish for a while, I don't know if he owned an LFS or worked there for a number of years. Anyway I talked to him for a while. The most interesting part of the conversation was when he bragged that he injected O2 and nitrogen into his tank. I was very intrigued by this statement and proceeded to try to find out more. He sorta trailed off stating that he didn't understand me and I wasn't making any sense.

You want us to post the conversations that we have overheard at LFS or what?

Boy your sig really stands out. It's kinda distracting. I kinda almost didn't notice your post but for the sig. I'm not sure what about it draws the eye - if it's the size, the red, or that the guy matches your avatar. I guess you really don't like elitists.

You read it when I was editing. If you check now the message should be there. I was trying to figure out how to delete an attachment I had attached. I tried inserting different text to see if that would clear the attachment, which didn't work. I finally found a post that described how to do it.

ATHF rocks.

Did the guy have a planted tank or did he just inject this stuff for kicks?
Or did he not know?

I think he was just trying to impress me with his technical knowledge. I'm not a big fan of salespeople talking to me (or at me) unless I specifically have a question I wish to ask.

If he did it on purpose, he'd be an interesting person to converse with.

ATHF?

I try not to converse with people from the LFS, I fear I might explode.

So, Smilla, were you impressed??

You need to let your LFS know that.

I know mine does, they part like the red sea when I walk in and don't bother me until they see that " I'm gonna buy that fish! " look on my face

LOL. I don't talk to the ones that make me mad. When I get angry I usually lose the ability to speak. (I shouldn't have said that I will end up speaking the next time I'm angry and regret it)

Yes. I was so very impressed. In fact I may even let him talk me into a protein skimmer for my freshwater tank.

There's usually such a high employee turnover at these places it would be difficult...

Actually one of the reasons I liked that location was that no one would talk to me. In fact I usually didn't see salespeople in the fish section. Oh well. If he bothers me I can ask him how the o2 injection is going.

Definitely keep tabs on that O2 injection Perhaps it's good for coloring up fish When you go back, ask if a protein skimmer is good for bath tubs....

OMG, YOU FOOL!!11! You don't need a protein skimmer on a FW tank. I can't believe you bought into his lies.



Either way, does anyone know why you would inject N2 into a tank?
