Tang police

found myself at [store] picking up some food for my bird, came across this gem. tank can't be larger then a ten gallon, had five fish in there as well. like I understand how retail works and that often it's just not economical to provide the ideal environment for fish but I usually see them in at least in a 29 gallon with a lot of flow. it was pretty sad...

someone call the tang police!

It really is. My LFS has a full grown arrowana in what looks to be no more than a 60 gallon right now. I just think its ironic when I hear them bashing people for tank sizes when there no better.

Tell them you won't shop there until they correct the problems. They will either listen, or go without sales. I owned LFS's and a good businessman listens to customers. Bad ones go out of business. Make sure they know you are a reef customer, we buy 5 times the amount of stuff the average fish tank owner does.

ive tried talking to the only lady there who is certified and she actually knows about fish, but she says people buy them too fast for them to empty the tanks to get rid of the ich. it makes me sad seeing their saltwater section. last month they had a clown trigger in a tiny little tank, it was so covered in ich that you could barely see its colors and they had it on sale for 100$ off. i only go there when im low on food and dont have time to drive 45 mins away to the better stores
