Wow I must live close to you! It's me favourite fish shop. I use the one in Rayleighplaty ben said:I bought a tank a while back, it was 15 gallon, i went in the LFS and said to the guy," i don't know whether to have 2 young piranhas and move them to my 65 gallon when they get bigger, or have platys,"
The guy replied, "Why don't you just have both?"
I looked at him blankly and walked out of the shop.
Now i go to a Fish store 20 minutes away called Swallow Aquatics, they are really great and they know what theyre on about!
I HATE that. It's very unfair, and IMO not a good way to keep a customer coming back.MizRamzi said:I paid 5.99 a piece for 2, 2" balas. 6months later at 9+" I had to bring them back to the LFS as they were hurting themselves in my 75 gallon. What did I get paid for them? How bout 1.60$ a piece Then I found out through a very good employee friend of mine that they sold the Balas for 19.99$ a piece!!
I completely agree with you. I too work at pet shop and we have some of the stupidest people come in. I had someone come in with their kids. They had a 10 gallon tank, which they though was big, and get 3 bala sharks. I told them I don't know how many times that the tank was way too small and that should get something smaller that would fit in the tank, but they didn't care and still ended up getting the sharks. And they dad said he wanted 3 so that way if one dies they still have 2 left.Jessie said:As someone who works at a LFCS I can honestly say that's it's not always the empolyies that are wrong, the customers have there fair share of misconseptions and sometimes there's nothing we can do about it.
