I still love the idea that someone suggested earlier on this thread I think where next to the display tank they have a cutout of the full grown size of the fish.

I definitely agree!! That eliminates people saying, "well, the fish store has them in a tank that small" when the they don't understand the filtration.

I love it when people bring in large plecos that they cannot house anymore. Instead of people looking at me like im lying I can just point to it and say "this is what that will become"

i was at a tropical pet store in milwaukee earlier today and i saw this guy looking at oscars, he turned around and asked hey do you know about these fish? I said i dont work here but yeah, what do you want to know he said can i put these in my community tank? I told him no and he said i want to see my fish get killed. i asked him why and he said when they all die he wanted to buy a snake. i just told him bring them to a fish store and they will take them and walked away. its really sad

It sure is! It's one thing when people just flat out don't know any better. I can't knock those people because they haven't been educated as far as the hobby goes. But when a person blatantly does something as shameful as this, it just pisses me off to no end!

That is just sad. It bothers me he actually said 'I want to see my fish get killed'... That's just not right...
