Fish stores often do not give the most helpful advice. some are very good, other just want to move merchandise and will sell you anything...while others just hire people with no clue and give no training. I've got two decent stores near me, both chain stores and both give excellent advice. Aquarium Adventure/Petland has a very well trained staff who keep fish and know what they are talking about, even the young kids who work there. However, their fish prices are very expensive.

My local Petsmart also has three good sales associates and the rest are so-so. Their fish are also quite good, they take excellent care of their tanks and their dollar per fish sales are terrific. The selection though is somewhat run of the mill.

and to answer your earlier question, yes a horse trough or ant stock tank can be used as a pond. You just need to make sure it is deep enough so the fish will not freeze or heat it. you'll also need filtration, sterilizers, etc., and that will have to winterized as well if your area gets below freezing in the winters.
