Thread: I am the despised.

Here's a good one for the budding aquaspecialist. Stop selling bettas to the teen girls that keep them in teacup sized quarters.
Instead see about getting some affordable 5 or 10 gallon kits and see it as a chance to upsell.

Okay...as much as I enjoy my fish...it's not rocket science.
Read a few books...keep reading on this site...read the monthly magazines...
You'll quickly pick up everything you need to know.
You just havve to activity pursue the information...you won't learn through osmosis.
The 'despised' are those who can't be bothered to crack a book...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

As far as chain stores are concerned,the "specialists"are just doing a job.Not all,but for the most part are uninformed.Example,petsmart brainwashes the aquarium people into thinking that pacu and id sharks only grow to 8 inches.And another example is that african cichlids can not be housed with other fish,ludacris.Depends on the whole fishkeepers experience.But,there are some that will tell a noob,some great advice.

Forgot something (was too busy standing on a soap box!)
The very best advice I ever got on discus keeping was from a LFS employee - the use of salt and high temp to cure discus of illness or not eating; meds often fail and many other treatments also fail but that one has been a great success - better still, it has no side effect except to make discus feel better! Can't say that about most meds. So, employee's that know there stuff are really, really good guys - like you are!
