Unfortunately a lot of the blame is on lfs
as when I first had a freshwater tank (my first ever tank) I was sold a 20 gallon tank to house 4 musk turtles it was a special turtle care pack they were doing and I picked the biggest tank option on offer. And i know of people who have had similar problems. Just to clarify the turtles were sold back to that lfs
as soon as I did the correct research but there are so many lfs
that just tell you whatever to get you to spend cash!
