I've just remembered this. It's really funny. I was a really cheeky little monkey and I used to have this great tank that was my pride and joy. On good tank days (AFTER my dad had painfully done all the maintenance), I'd claim all the glory and charge the neighborhood kids to come look at my fish. Niiiiiiiice kid, niiiiiiiiiiice.

Wow, you were a greedy little kid. Did you atleast share the profit with your dad? I think I should start doing that.

I remember when I was in either middle or high school, I invited a bunch of friends over to check out my awesome new pleco. We all gathered around the tank, I proudly flicked the light on all ready to show him off...and he was dead. :-\ I can clearly remember going from having a huge smile on my face to sobbing hysterically.

Wow, that would be bad, especially if you made the people pay to look at them. They do it at the zoo all the time.

No, I didn't charge, but I'd been talking up my awesome new pleco non-stop, building up to the great reveal. And then...yeah. Not so great! I hadn't even had him for two weeks, so at least the LFS gave me a refund...but I would have rather just had my fish.

Ah that must have made you feel awful! All I remember when we had that huuge tank was we kept koi in them.Pity it started leaking so quickly.

I dunno but I doubt kids these days would pay money to see an aquarium these days.

Well I AM sorry, Dave, but there's a queue round the block to see the sleeping pleco and I just can't be seen to be offering any concessions!

I think concessions would be a good idea.. sell sweets to the hungry people waiting in the queue.

In light of recent facts that have come to the surface regarding a certain person; one armadillo (the moderator variety, not the four-legged variety), this agency feels that it has to retract a statement from another thread stating that the agency does not feel that this armadillo (moderator, not four-legged) is not a greedy person.
This agency will be doing a full investigation into the accused, from bank statements to wedding gift requests, and will apply the appropriate fine as is deemed necessary.
We will not rest until justice is served or we have all of the accused's money and worldly possessions, whichever comes first, which will most certainly be the latter.
