I was on a family trip last year to another hawaiian island and I was told that there was a tank in the car rental area. There was a 55 gallon saltwater tank with dead coral, a yellow tang, a zebra eel, a Hawaiian flag fish, a soldier fish, a damsel, and a dog face puffer. Terrible

If that wasn't bad enough, a near by pancake restaurant had a 35 gallon hexagon tank with some yellow tail damsels and a malnourished 8 line wrasse

I find this happens a lot. I will be casually talking about aquariums with someone, and they will say something like "the employee at the store said so"

Its like nails on a chalkboard to my ears -.-

i know haha i pretty much ignore the employees unless something is out of stock or they moved something. i go to petco so much that they know i know what im talking about and dont even try to get me to buy stuff because ive spent about 2 grand there just on tanks, filters, heaters, supplies, food and plants. i dont buy fish there and they know i wont ive even had them recommend me to go to another store and now its one of my favorite places lol

Especially the "every 15 minutes" part... Better not have anything to do all day every day! You are now a vital piece of aquarium equipment.

That's as bad as people who say to blow into shipping / transport bags to inflate them. I guess some people just don't stop to think that we breathe oxygen in and exhale carbon dioxide.
