Me: I'm looking for nerites.

LFS Guy: We have some snails, but if you really want algae control we have some of those sucker fish.

Me: Oy. Plecos.

Guy: Yeah.

Me: Yeah, I only have a 55 gallon and they get way too big.

Guy: They do get pretty big. I have a 55 gallon tank at home with a pleco that's half as long as the tank. He's in with four oscars. We're having a dollar per gallon sale if you want a 55 so you can get one.

I went into a store not too long ago and asked if they could get assassin snails. The guy literally laughed and said "What the hell......sounds like a video game". I just turned around and walked out.

I was in LFS today. I was waiting around killing time because their fish shipment was arriving soon. While we were waiting a mom and her sons walk in, I hear them say as they walk in the door among a lot of other things what they wanted and hoped to find. They looked around, found a 29g kit and said ok I want that one, then went straight to look at fish. The mom and sons spread out, I look over and see the mom staring in a tank of common pleco's.
Mom: we need a sucker fish, a pleco I think it's called, where are they?
Son: right there mom.
Mom: oh ok, good.
They all look at other fish, I see one of
The sons looking in the cichlid tank, the tank that has all the aggressive cichlids in it...
Son: mom look at these (referring to the cichlids) these would be so cool to have with some
Of those tetras and your pleco.
Mom: oh yeah they would! Mom then sees
A 10g kit, and says I want this size instead of that bigger one, then she calls the lady working in.
Mom: do you have Any of the 29g set up in here
So I can see how big it is?
Sales lady: sure we do, these here are 29's.
Mom: how big are the 10's?
Sales lady: these are a 10g.
Mom: ok don't want the 29 it's to big, I want the 10g kit, so what fish can we have?
Sales lady: ooh you don't have your tank set up yet?
Mom: No, we were wanting to buy the tank and fish and go home, set it up and put fish in.
Sales lady: you could do that; but all your fish would be dead in a week.
Mom: I was afraid of that.. Ok. We're gonna go to
Walmart and think about it.

At least the sales lady was being honest I guess.

Yesterday I went to my lfs to purchase my Bolivian Rams. After they were bagged up, I was walking around for a second when I over heard an elder couple asked a worker about purchasing a black molly and a gold fish. I could not believe what came next....worker says, "Wellllll you can if you stay up on your water changes..." needless to say it was also a newly setup tank too.....I really wanted to pull them to the side and tell them to check this website first before they do anything but I had to turn the other cheek and walk away
