It was my first day off to myself FOREVER yesterday so I did a bit of a LFS crawl, went to about 4 pet stores.
One of them is one I've never been to before. They have a great range but the tanks were filthy and many of the fish were sick. I also heard them recommending some OBSCENE things to customers. I won't be going back.
I did see this for sale though. Thinking about putting an oscar in it. What do you guys think?
Just as a size comparison, it looks like it would fit about 2 Litres in it. Don't know how many gallons that is. Half a gal maybe?120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

I never go back there and spend my money in another store were they make a effortIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

What is crazier than advertising that as a goldfish tank is the price. $62.95? That would sell for $15 around here.

Thanks Kross, I was thinking of putting a couple of Clown Loaches and a Common Plec in there as clean up crew too -- I've done my research and know that oscars are very messy eaters.

you've got oscars in the middle, and clown loaches on the bottom. don't you think the top would look a bit empty? how about an arowana or so? good that it has a lid, arowanas can be a bit jumpy...

Tongue-in-cheek, I assume you're joking about putting an Oscar in there ...
I sometimes wish goldfish had nice sharp teeth like Piranhas, to BITE people who stuff them into glass shoeboxes like that! Or is it plastic, or acrylic? No matter . . .
Still too much of that kind of thing out there ... Gives entirely the wrong impression.
Glad you walked away ...

It was plastic. One of those critter-carriers I remember other kids keeping mice in when I was a kid.
