Im having some cycling issues witha large tank, and i was getting weird readings.
so, i took a sample of my waterto a local chain store that offersfree water checks.

me:i need to get this water tested
employee: sure, does some vague testing "yeah, its high in ammonia"
me: how high?
employee: likekinda high, a little, but not too much
me: (face palm). Butwhat numbers
employee: in the middle
me: what about nitrates
employee: none
me: strange
employee: yeah, but theyre the same thing as ammonia. Theres not really a difference and you cant do anything about it except wait.

People at pet stores and local fish stores should need a qualification certificate or some sort of test before just working in any departments. They hurt more people then help. (Not all are like this though, I have a lady at my Petco who keeps fish for 20+ years now. )

I attribute it to employee laziness... they're just so lazy, they'll tell you anything and hope you believe them, so they don't get bothered actually doing any "work".
