I've worked hard to keep some fish alive and when a few end up dying, people just say, just get another fish.

Trust me the amount of idiots that walk through the door of the lfs I work at who think they know everything and don't listen is limitless. Ex: I had a guy who claimed to have been doing sw for 35 years come in. He got a very healthy looking powder brown and flame angel for his "125". Took them both home. 2 hours later he comes back in with a beat to hell powder brown and wants to give it back. Apparently he only had an 80 with a yellow that destroyed the powder brown. Fish died shortly thereafter. Guess 35 years isn't enough to know that tank is to small for a powder brown and a yellow.

I read that national geographic will have a "goldfish bowl" on super bowl Sunday. 4 hours of filming goldfish in a bowl. Disturbing. If it was a pond or tropical tank I would watch it but I don't filming goldfish in bowls for the public to see

So it's like puppy bowl with goldfish?

Just like the puppy bowl but goldfish in a bowl. I'm not sure what the size is but I don't like the sound of it. If the show was a recording of a planted tank or a reef tank that would be 4 hours well spent

There's a guy that comes in and claims that his eels keep disappearing. So he keeps buying FW eels. It makes me sad knowing how irresponsible people are.

I think the best is when someone is like:
Aquariums are so stupid theres no point to them.
I enjoy watching my fish, even though I often can't interact with them like a dog, they're definitely considered pets in my eyes.

Some people are amazed at how attached I can get to some fish like my pearl gouramis and my angelfish. When people make fun of me for being upset that I lost a fish, I find it harder to sympathize for people who lose a dog
