yes a person "should" know what they are doing but usally if they dont they will say stuff cause working at petsmart I guess give you street cred.. lol
A guy that works at petsmart told me last week he keeps fancy goldfish with his oscars in a 40 gallon.. i didnt mention anything and then he said usally it is a bad to keep them together but i have worked her so long i figured how to make both happy.. i nodded.

Fact: Fish store people should know what they are talking about, and some do, but the majority don't.
Fact: We are fish keepers and obsessed with everything fish, we are not trying to sell you anything, but are trying to help you save your fish.
Fact: We know what we are talking about.
Fact: Your tank is not suitable for the fish you have.
Fact: Your tank is not cycled and needs to be in order for any fish to survive.
Fact: Tropical fish need a heater unless you can keep the water at a constant 77-78F without one.
Fact: These are good links for you to read. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...ad.php?t=36492
Fact: You should return the fish, read the thread on cycling without fish, then after the tank is fully cycled, buy fish suitable for your tank.
Fact: If you choose to ignore our advice and argue that fish store employees know better than we do, you and your fish are in for a hard lesson.
Fact: Obviously you have never seen 850 act rude if you think his posts here are rude.

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
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
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.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
