Swords don't grow large
You can keep seven sharks in a ten gallon
Bamboo stays small
Hm....
Oh the age old fish have a short memory span
Toilet flushing is the most humane way to euthanize a fish (it's not, it's the worst)
The old bad tip of running the tank for 24 hours before purchasing the fish
Bettas can be kept in cups with a plant and be ok

That's what I'm being told and I'm like NOAP!!

Oh boy... I can only imagine the look on their faces when the cashier gave them their total. Feeder fish are usually less than $.50 each, while glofish are like $8 a pop... Guess you have to pay a premium to watch you Oscar have tie dye poop.

Sometimes true though, also what works for one may not work for you.

Here's one I got today after asking if Prime or API was better for a water conditioner:

"You honestly don't need water conditioner, they're just there to waste money. If you ever clean your water, just take out all the water, decor and plants and wash your tank with lots of soap. So when you put the water back in, it won't carry any toxins. That's what I do and I only lost a fish!"

Yeah I just bought both conditioners LOL

I think this beats "ich is good for fish" for dumbest advice. Must have only ever put one fish in the tank, then never replaced it. I'm not sure which would be worse for the fish, the chlorine or the soap residue.

PS - prime gets my vote for best water conditioner.

Recently, in a store in a small town SW of Fort Worth, I was td that the best filtration you can use is an under-gravel filter. More came out of her mouth, but my brain checked out with that.
