yeserday at "Pet not so smart"
me: I wanna get some ghost shrimp and some zebra danios
sales clerk: what size fish tank you have
me: 20 gallons
sales clerk: is it filitered?
sales clerk: what dont you get these instead? (showed me a big cichlid)
me: no I need small fish (hesitant) I have a betta I am going to put them in with
sales clerk: you dont need danios they a the dumbest fish all they do is eat and eat. They will eat your betta. Put your betta in a fish bowl instead (showed me a small bowl) and leave him alone. They dont like to be bothered. Put the danio and shrimp in the tank instead
me: so what? I dont need to change the water or anything?
sales clerk: no. They like still water and can live that way for awhile.
me: ok well I been doing some research and I found this betta site on the internet and some said it is ok to house them together depending on the temperment of my betta.
sales clerk: ok?
me: well im going to listen to them cause they know what they are talking about
sales clerk: (evil glare that burned a hole through my head then he walked away behind closed doors)
came back later to purchase my fish no questions asked
