I can understand your thought process. I found a great store too (same owner since the 60's), tons of plants, fish and accessories, even if they were a bit pricey. They were on my goto list of LFS right up until I was told not to bother keeping my GSP in BW, because they're just fine in FW. Now they don't get one red cent of my aquatic spending.

It seems that a lot of places are all to happy to tell you whatever will sell you something. I stopped and read the sign on the gsp's at walmart. "May nip fins, good tank mates with danios and gouramis. Prefer 1 tbsp of salt for every 5 gallons of water."

Can fish live in varying water conditions? Yes. Some of them can. Not all. Is its what's best for them? No. Just like a chinchilla wouldn't live long roaming free in your back yard, and certain dogs need room to run. Every animal has needs that need to be met for them to be healthy.

Not to be mean, but IMO if you aren't willing to provide your animals with the closest thing to a natural habitat, you probably shouldn't have them.

you have got to remember though that almost all of the fish in the lfs have been breeded and have never been in the wild, they are ment to be pets. you should try to take care of them as best you can but half of the fish are bred to look that way and do not exist in the wild.

I have kept my 3 year old 6 inch and 4 inch kissing gouramis with a male betta all there life.. They just swim past each other, not bothering even if they both go for the same food at the same time they don't fight, maybe I'm just lucky..
