  1. Default Any one else google at the fish store?

    It never fails, it doesn't matter how much I research and prepare, there's always something at the fish store that either I didn't think to look up, or looks way better in person than online so I didn't bother to look it up. The good fish store is an hour away so inevitably I end up pulling out the phone and googling fish compatibility in public. I know I must look like an ass walking around staring at my phone and ignoring all the workers, but I gotta have my facts right I can't tell you how many times an in store google has saved me from making a mistake, most recently almost buying a Synodontis I thought was a dwarf that actually got over a foot.

    Thats what I do a lot. Helps. Certainly. I find it more private to go back to the greenhouses though. No one is interested in plants

    I do it all the time. One store I go to changes out what it gets a lot so I like to look them up when I am there ( even though we are buying no new fish other than replacement right now).

    Same here. What sucks though if my brother forgets his phone. My phone doesn't have internet because i never needed it, until i got into fishkeeping. Lol

    What I do then, i just list the names of the fish and research when i get back home.
    Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Always do it. The worst is, as your searching your phone dies -_- Then you have to go back home look whatever you need to look up. Figure out it works in your tank and then go back.

    I have googled at the fish store a few times. Sadly though it seems the two good lfs I frequent in my city don't really get anything worth googling anymore.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    I do it frequently, google and the AC fish database have saved me quite a bit of hassle on several occassions!

    I do it all the time and it has saved me a few times. Unfortunately my connection is so bad inside the building that it takes 10x longer than it would if I was outside with a good connection but I'm always too lazy to go outside to do it instead of just looking at the fish with a bad connection.

    All the time. Sometimes I see a species I'm not familiar with and I check its requirements before I consider buying.

    my phone has no reception at the fish store I use.

    Thankfully the owner is really friendly and lets me use his computer in his office!

    I've even used it to do stuff on the site of the fish club I run ;)
    Used to try and keep track of my fish here.....

    Ran out of room and time!!!

    Instead I'll tell you the best piece of fishkeeping equipment ever....... Algae Scrubber :)
