Yea they're overpriced everywhere I look. LFS by me lists them at $30. Needed one for DIY reactor for co2 injection

Was at a lfs last night and a couple was looking at the various fish. They called an associate over and said they wanted three angels to take home. The store employee asked them what else was in the tank. They explained that it was an empty one gallon tank. The store employee explained that the fish would grow bigger than the tank. I thought to myself, great he's not going to send a fish home to die. Then in the next breath he talked them into a gourami, a pleco and two platys. He never told them about cycling or overstocking or anything. Oh well, guess that's how they get return customers.

Mine was just a straight shot to second floor but the stairs were really steep so it made carrying it a lot harder.

This isn't something I over heard but Oh man it was gross. I was in (insert most popular pet chain here) and I was looking at the fish, just for fun. Then the power went out and all of the pumps shut off momentarily and then powered on again. When they came back on a disgusting black mixture of decayed food and feces shot out of every pump into every tank. It was so bad that you could not see into any of the tanks, at all. The water just turned completely black, full of all their waste. So that's when I decided to buy fish elsewhere.

LOL pretty funny, yet sad that she's working at a pet store (even if she's not in the fish section of the store). It's so disappointing when people who know next to nothing about fish sell them and give false advice (in general).
