    I get so tired of reading posts where people want to know what’s wrong with their fish. Then you tell them and they say they can’t afford the med or they can’t afford wood for their pleco or they can’t afford a heater or on and on and on. Why do people buy these fish if they can’t afford to take care of them? Sickens me. Do your research before you buy the darn fish. So many people don’t even know what Kind of pleco they have. Really? You just buy something before learning if it will survive in your tank? I am irritated. Ok, thanks for letting me vent.

    No problem.

    I entirely agree, and I am so glad you posted this, thank you.
    Mainly, it’s because people are lazy, or too excited about something good to actually care to investigate what it needs to live properly.

    Don’t buy anything before you know what it is, what it’ll become, and how to treat it.

    The pleco thing sometimes perplexes me. How would fish stores charge you if they didn’t even know what they were selling? But I can understand if one came here asking because they have doubts about the species it was sold under.

    Ok so common plecos are sold so much because most people don't do research and the stores tell people that they can own one in such a same tank. Most chain stores don't care about there fish and just want the money. And people don't realize what they get into until it's too late.
