They said that the kitten would get food and water so that's all that mattered

Manager at a chain store:
There is no need to do water changes if you are properly stocked. Then they berated me for using prime and doing weekly PWCs. They said the fish will die from stress and if not their growth will be stunted from it. I was actually told that today last time I shop at a chain store. All I went in for was a bottle of prime

Edit: they were also sold out of prime

I haven't really given bad advice but I've done stupid things before haha. But one time at my local fish store I asked someone for one male Congo Tetra and one female Congo Tetra. Well she gave me two female. I told her that I wanted one male and she said that they recieved either only males or only females in their shipments. I told her that there were 2 males in the tank with like 10 females. I basically had to force her to get what I wanted. I got really mad haha

Funny enough the tanks looked amazing I figure at least someone there knows what they are doing. I almost bought some new fish there today but had tank maintenance that took priority

Sounds familiar I got my 2 Bolivian rams for literally 2$ I was in a lfs saw them without a price or ID asked about them. The employee had no idea and was the owners daughter. She said in need of a coffee and would happily give them to me in return for one
