Some retailers that is the case. Not all. I was NOT like that when I worked at my local Petsmart for 3 years. My coworkers also tried their best.

But yes, the bad ones kill a lot of fish.

The guy at my LFS caught me taking this picture and he came running over, "These bowls are great, aren't they!? You can put so many fish in them and the waterfall action purifies the water! They're on sale for 19.99$!"

Oh wow. What a highly misinformed idiot. Common sense should tell you thats a betta bowl. Even then its too small. Its a snail bowl.

At work the other day, a guy came in asking for basically fish shampoo because he bought an Oscar and the guy told him it was growing algae. I asked this guy a few questions and determined a rock had better answers. He said the coat was clear and he showed me a pic and its a normal oscar. It was the oscars slime coat!?! I just walked away otherwise I would have peed the guy off

Fish only grow to the size of their environment! Don't know how many times I have heard that.

You can keep this dwarf black fish in an aquarium through its entire life. Train it to do tricks, with out mangling you. Ooo it may be suitable in a community tank with miniature dolphins.
