See, that's just it. There was a saying for irresponsible children back in the day that said something to the effect of "if you wanted an easy pet, you should've gotten a goldfish". I don't know what idiot thought that fish were actually easy to care for, but I'd love to knock them one.

Yeah, I've only been in the hobby for a couple of months. Well, if you count the bettas in bowls when I was younger then I guess I've been in the hobby for a few years! But that I don't count because I did it completely wrong!
That's exactly why I wanted to get my sister the tank for her birthday. For the Betta's sake too.

But yeah, I just got into this last month. Man has it been a learning experience... And something of a bumpy ride. Looks like you're flourishing with it a bit more than I am though. ;D Three tanks... *snicker, snicker*

I sort of did that to my boss at my local pet store (not actually, but told her she was wrong and whatever)... I got fired for that. that ticked me off... I didn't even say it in the rude manner I wanted to

Wow, fired you for correcting her? Haha, someone seriously can't deal with being wrong... Sorry you got fired. Clearly your knowledge wasn't appreciated as it should have been.

Lol. I could soo see my brother firing someone for correcting him.

It isn't something to laugh about though, and I'm sorry that you got fired.

Ya, technically not "fired" they just stopped giving me hours... then one day I saw a new girl there... I asked her something about the fish and she didn't know anything... I was ticked lol
The worst thing is theres only one other place that sells fish in my town, and they're just as clueless (and not caring to change)... I'm almost scared to buy my fish from from here who knows how badly they've been treated :S... but the next town is 2 hours away, and I hear it isnt that great either. and if i REALLY wanted to travel, I could drive 4 hours to a city, with a petsmart.... the guy I talked to there seemed knowledgeable, but honestly, 4 hours each way is a lot of gas money for a couple fish

And ya, I laugh off the firing or whatever you want to call it because honestly, if they're that dumb then i dont want to work there... but then I get ticked for thinking of all the fish there that are gonna end up not cared for properly

At least he said storage, that means deep down he knows it's coming back out again

mfdrookie516, I think your tank deserves to be out again, try something you havent done before (Or have you done all kinds of tanks? :O)

Would hate to see you see you go mfd. But he only said he put one in the closet. Maybe that's because he has more than one and is reducing the number? Doesn't mean he's leaving......right?
