Lack of directions

Does anyone else find it frustrating that aquarium supplies often come with no directions. I have never in my life gotten so many "no directions" items. It's sooo bad; it's almost funny now.

Yes I have brought many of those. Have you ever seen mislabelled fish? That's also very annoying.

Google it or the game called "trial and error" is fun, but can be a pain later on down the road! lol

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Unless they should cost more, they never get the price wrong!)

My shop orders as and sells Pseudogastromyzon sp.

I have 6 of these, not one is from that genus.

Also the case of brachygobius sp. often going under the name bumblebee goby.
Never correctly identified. Just bumble bee, lots of different gobies with different care all called bumble bee goby! They all look very similar. The difference in care is as far different as day/night.

I will not say too much about everyones hero, the "common" plec!

Have you ever noticed that the majority of said terrible directions have no mention of 'made in USA' anywhere?

Yeah, and if it's an Azoo product, you need to be able to read Chinese.
