Dont get me started on that...I work at petsmart and have to deal with snotty parents and kids who dont want to hear that even though a gold fish is pictured on the box, a 5g or 10g is not appropriate for a gold fish.
Ive had someone want to put an oscar in a 0.5g betta tank...

I too use to work there and I had a guy come in one time with a 12" Oscar that he got for free and he was looking for soap to wash the fish because when he picked the Oscar up he was slimy (like they should be.) Now that's some crazy talk for sure!

Someone is selling a 10 gallon setup for $150. That person will never get that much for something so small and also saw a 75 gallon that was goin for 1200 bucks which it was a simple setup, not reef ready or even saltwater for that matter. People so stupid these days

I saw a 10 gallon a few weeks ago with 4 oscars, 2 koi and 3 twelve inch common plecos. It's a shame that such nice fish are in those bad conditions.

I saw one yesterday with someone trying to sell a used 10 gallon that they said they couldn't be bothered to clean for $100. It's not as bad as most of the other ones on here but still unbelievable.

If you think that's frightening dead, you should see what a big one looks like alive. I saw one in the Bahamas and it's eye ball was bigger than mine. Scared the crap out of me.
