I have seen that many times.

This woman told the worker at my lfs that she won't go back to [store] because her 10 or so fish died and they didn't honor their return policy. Well worker said how did they die? Woman said they said there was no salt in the aquarium. Lfs worker said what kind of fish did she have? The woman said tangs, clowns, and shrimp. I ask (putting my 2Ę) what kind of salt brand did you use? Woman response Great Value...... May I say more?

Sad thing is that someone working at [store] probably told her that would work.

I Wes buying fish not 45 minutes ago, and I asked about LIVE fish food, not just freeze dried, or canned, or flaked or pellet food, live food like blood worms or somethin, and I get a puzzled, disgusted look from both my dad, and every one who worked there.

I have some aquariums for sale on Craigslist. Someone called me and asked if I had a tank they "could keep a nemo fish in." I told her I did and I started explaining about cycling, lights, live rock and sand, etc. Not sure she knew what i was talking about. hope she does some reading!

Yes but feeding live fish is unhealthy and glofish are expensive/ beautiful.
