She often texts me while I'm at school or work, saying how much better her life is with fish and frogs lol. And she only has two Bettas and the ADFs! I can only imagine if she had anything else... She would never spend time on anything else except her tank, talking to them, feeding them and worrying about them. I swear she talks to and about her fish and frogs more than about her children :p

An LFS was selling "ballon belly gold fish". Didn't see any though. Feel bad for the fish.

I saw an empty tank once labeled ghost cats.... I wondered if instead of being sold out of ghost catfish if they were selling the ghosts of dead catfish? Might be fun for shipwreck themed tank.

My lfs must have gad customers that don't research their fish. Last time I went, all the pleco and oto tanks had signs saying these fish are very peaceful but will not eat all types of algae. We will not accept returns under these conditions.

I had a LFS sell me a 3 inch catfish with whiskers 2 inches long, on both sides, say that it was all fine for a 5 gallon tank. Once it ate my neons in that tank, I brought it back a week later and explained thing to the manager, and they took beck the fish gladly giving me a refund. I never saw the person who sold me the catfish ever again, for some reason?

Me: I need an adjustable heater for a qt tank.

LFS, ooooold lady who claims to have been raising fish for 35 years: Ok.

Me; I have an ich outbreak so I need to get the water to at least 86.

Lady: Why?

*facepalm*

Later in the conversation she tells me that all new arrivals get their own personal dousing of Ick Guard, regardless of how they look. I start walking around to find at least two of her tanks are riddled with ich. She's like those doctors who prescribe antibiotics just for the heck of it and now we have MRSA to deal with.

Every time I go to my lfs, I decide to play "Spot the Dead Fish in Every Tank and Buy Myself SOmething Nice." I always win.

It is a [store] though. I do have one really fantastic lfs that has knowledgeable workers and very clean tanks. I never won my game there and all the fish I got are healthy. But it's thirty minutes away. The [store] is five minutes away, and no one ever wants to drive me to Patchogue unless I'm getting actual fish. Sigh...
