Visiting an lfs today I was very pleased to hear the staff at the counter refusing to sell an ignorant customer a goldfish.

The staff asked the customer if they had a filtered tank and when they said no - just a bowl, the staff informed them that they would be unable to buy any fish here.

My local lsf seems ok, at the moment my Nitrites are quite high, so he strongly advises me not to get any more fish, also he doens't sell hybrids and things either.

p.s. Which part of London r u in wWW, I'm in West London

My lfs is ok, she just does not have any selection. Master would cry if he saw a fish store with no cichlids :)

how about this , i was looking round in one of the big pet
stores which stock fish, about 10 miles from where i live.
anyways. i wanted to get a female redrainbow for my male
and spotted some in a tank with an assortment of fish.
i asked the young lad who came to me how much they were
as there was'nt a price on for them . he replied . dont no
which fish you mean .i said the red rainbow fish. he said oh
dont no which ones they are. i pointed them out. so
he went to ask another member of staff the price . who
came back with him and said . we havn't any rainbow fish in
stock. i just replied forget it. wonder how many gcse they
got. won't be going back there thats for sure.
does this sort of thing just happen to me ?

slt.

Not just you dear

Think the young the better in those places. Makes the pay cheaper, and a higher profit.
Once knew the manager of a petsmart store. Used to get phone calls all the time :laugh:

lol..welcome to the club Davy. The Petco here in town is looking for a manager for the aquatics department. If I had the time I would go get it and see about getting that place in better shape than what it's in now. But I don't so I can't. Oh well. Rose
