Weekly pill container. Have the food separated by day and hide the rest of the food containers. This way they feed just the right amount every day.

It may have been said already but posted all over my LFS are big signs saying:

REMEMBER! Always run your new tank for 7 days before adding fish!!!

It sends a better message than tanked.

Not really advice but it cracks me up every time I see it.

In one of my LFS there's a large banner above the tanks that says "ALL FISH 2 FOR 1. No warranty on 2 for 1 fish"

So I asked "Um so that means no warranty then right?"

Reply "no no, just on the 2 for 1 fish"

Umm. Huh. Well then....

That's honestly a lot better than most stores.
