The fifth was one tough fish, and hardly seemed affected. I ended up giving him to a friend for her tank a few weeks later, figured he deserved to live after that.

It is hard to educate some people. I work at a pet store and if I try to tell someone the tank you have is too small for the fish you want they either get mad, think I'm lying, or don't care and buy the fish anyways. Not all people are like this, but a few unfortunately

I have a dream of working in a fish store but I don't think I could for this very reason. I would feel so frustrated. You're a saint!

The main thing is I never lie to people. Even if it means losing a sale.

My son works at a large chain pet store (not sure if it's cool to name it here) and, oh boy, the stories he comes home with!

Oh I know! A girl recently came in wondering why here fish kept dying. She said she had a 20 gallon with 4 gouramis , some mollies , and a common pleco. I'm like your ammonia is probably way too high, have you ever changed your water? She looked at me like I was crazy. I told her she needs to rehome the pleco and she kinda just laughed. It can be rough
