Speaking of Pets At Home--
I went there yesterday to replenish some of the stock eaten by my Monster Shrimps, and on the way I took some water to test. I just tested it at home for Ammonia and Nitrites and it was as it should, but just wanted to make sure the pH and Nitrates levels are OK as well. Since they have the API testkit, little lady took the comprehensive test anyway, and imagine my surprise, when the Ammonia reading was around 5 and the Nitrite levels went off the chart!
Completely baffled I didn't get any fishes (just in case) but decided to test the water again at home, and - today - at different pet store. Both of them test confirmed my very first readings - everything's all right with water
I don't even want to know, what they did wrong anymore. Giving this kind of advice is unacceptable, to say the least
That was the final straw for me, and I don't think I'll get anything more from this store anymore - which is a shame, because they do have the widest choice and some rare fishes as wel...
Oh! And they did sold the Monster Shrimps to the couple that came after me, and when I tried to warn them the seller just shrugged me off and said: "They'll be all-right"
