1) I heard a [store]employee tell a customer that they should put in their new 10 gal tank, as first fish, 1 oscar, 2 guppies, some platies and some neon tetras. I laughed. ( Thankfully, they didn't listen and just got some guppies.)

2) Bettas don't need clean water- pet shop employee

3) Bettas need 10 gal. aquariums to keep multiple males in them- too many people on internet forums.

4) Breeding fish like other fish in their tanks- pet stores and forum posts.

5) ANY kind of algae you can grow is good algae- Chain store employee

See my Lfs is actually very responsible and gives great advice and all of the employees have their own tanks and considering that the manager and owner have been working there for 30 years they are very realiable. [store] and [store] are the real culprits here most of the time.

What I can't stand are those pictures on the aquarium boxes that show like 6 swordtails, 3 dwarf gourami, a few Platys and some tetras all living happily in a 10 gallon tank!

Three orandas in a 10g tank. -_- their slogan "it's all about the fish". I'd like to change it to "it's all about these fish that will die in a matter of days".

'You'll need this expensive light in your tank or your fish will lose all their colours in the dark' ([store] fish 'specialist')

What did I reply?

'Actually my house has windows so I think we'll be fine.'

I went elsewhere and bought a bigger, better and less expensive tank which does happen to have a light but luckily I have the windows to rely on if we have a power cut
