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 throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for 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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
