Having been married myself once, I know there is always a "give and take" when it comes to fish tanks. What better way to get another tank in the house without an argument?

Haha! My boyfriend is the one who got me my first tank since I kept saying I wanted one, now he just makes fun of me, in good humor of course, when I keep coming home with things. I only have five tanks...haha! Next one will be the biggie 90 or more!

I think you have the wrong quote. It brings me to a thread about saltwater disease treatment

I know the people at my Lfs and they know exactly what is in my tank and one time I had a platy change genders which threw off my balance and they happily exchanged. It helps if they know where your fish came from and such. I guess you have to trade before becoming attached or just deal with it.

I'll have to ask the lfs. I would of thought it is rare here to take fish back. I know some stores will do it but in the 5 local stores here I rarely see fish that have been returned. Maybe at one some large cichlids. I've always assumed you are stuck with them unless selling on gumtree or something.

It does worry me sometimes when somebody says they will re-home or upgrade tank size down the track. I assume they have done research and will know when the fish is too big for the tank. At work a fond expression is assuming makes an 'a*s out of u & me' but it doesn't seem rocket science.

Loyalty to my fish?

It's doing that for me too

The only time I've returned a fish is with clown loaches because I needed something to eat my mts (snails not syndrome ). I brought in some platies once too because they were fry that grew up.

My LFS puts them right in the tank, but unfortunately they do have diseases (we got a fish with ich once) so that is definitely an issue. But with a lot of contagious diseases, quarantine will decrease the risk of your tank getting infected so we always quarantine our new fish.
