I hope this is an okay place to post this. It's just a rant. I know many other people have similar stories. I got a 30 gallon to plan for 1 or 2 fancy goldfish. I told myself I would either get 1 large-ish one or 2 medium for now. I should have known better than to go to PM. I ended up looking at the tiny baby fantails (about 1 inch each), because nothing else was catching my eye. I still planned to only get 2. I had one picked out and was agonizing over which of two others I would take home. The salesman approached me and asked which fish I wantd. I explained my problem to him and said I was still deciding. I made some stupid comment, "Oh, I just wish I could get all three! hahahaha" and without even making any facial expression he just looked at me and said, "get three." He started to net them for me. I thought he was joking, so I tried to point out which ones to get, and all he kept saying was, "just get three," and he grabbed them all. But it gets worse. Out of nowhere, he said "Is your water cloudy?" I told him it wasn't and explained that my tank was already cycled and told him about my other tank as well. "Is the water in your other tank cloudy?" "No...." I couldn't figure out why he was asking me this. "Well, it will be. Here," he said, handing me a bottle of Aqueon ammonia neutralizer. What the heck? Anyway, I wanted to complain to a manager, but I had to get away from this guy, so of course I ended up bringing the 3 tiny things home. Don't worry, I won't keep them in the 30 gallon. PM has a 14 day guarantee, and I plan to give it a few days and decide which one to take back. Of course now I'm getting too attached to all of them and already looking into a 40+ gallon tank, but I don't think that's going to happen. I take full responsibility for being talked into something when I should have stood up and told him to put one fish back, but I don't do well under pressure, and I just wanted to get out of there. I really regret not sticking up for myself and the fish when I knew better. Just wanted to share. Oh, I should also add that while I was first looking at the tank another (friendlier) associate came and chatted with me and claimed that 3 could live in a 30 gallon for a few years before they'd outgrow it and that they grow very slowly. Ug. I've been doing lots of research on growth rates, stunting, etc. and I'm not sure how long they could stay in this tank, but I'm pretty sure that info was inaccurate.
