Went to my lfs today to grab a few small fish. Sunday is quite a busy day for them and had to wait my turn. Anyway whilst I was being served, there was a group of 3 men browsing the tanks....closely followed by a strong body odour....it was repulsive! They managed to have a whole section to browse themselves... For some unknown reason :P

Couldn't help thinking that if they took so little care of their own personal hygiene, imagine what their tanks are like!!

Oh those poor angels that they were contemplating buying....

Wow. I have a story too. I was volunteering for the first time at my LFS. A young man (13-14) was walking around and stopped to look at some oscars. I said "they're pretty cool aren't they". He replied "yeah I think I'm gonna get one more." I asked "how big is your tank?". He said it's 55 gallons. I told him he could do one but probably not forever. He said "are you serious?, I already have six!". I almost fainted. He left with some feeder fish. Luckily he did not buy any oscars.

Ugh! Not as interesting but I often "volunteer" at my LFS by helping them locate the missing Bettas. People like to put two males together and hide them on a shelf... Morons.

I am very new to this hobby, but it amazes me just how little some people know! Those poor fish!
