1. The guy at the store tried to convince me to buy glofish and i had to explain to him that they are bioengineered and his reply was "as far as i know all of our fish are natural" and since that day, when i go to that store, if i see that guy when i walk in the door i turn around and walk out.

2. (Not told to me) oh yeah, 2 silver tipped sharks would be fine in a 10 gallon.

3. (I told the lady what my stock was: guppies, platies, swordtails)
me: i would like 5 kuhli loaches.
Her: kuhli loaches get really lazy after a while and die quickly, i would recommend plecotomus.
Me: (playing along so that i can get my fish) yeah, i know, but i really like kuhlis.

Was at my LFS other other day and a customer was saying to another that the best way to connect a sump is to take a hammer and punch a hole in the glass. They said that you don't have to bother with drilling because if you hit it right with the hammer the hole will be perfect. Lol.

Wow... I wonder if this guy has actually tried his method before. And how many tanks he has shattered looking for that perfect way to punch a hole out with a hammer...
