Someone thought I was a Petco employee.

It's funny how much people don't know about what they are taking care of. I saw an older lady looking for "glow in the dark plants" I told her that there are none there. I told her the benefits of live plants and how glow in the dark plants won't be good for fish because they like to sleep too.

After a while she came back to me about what her sharks would eat and I promptly told her, I even pointed out where the frozen brine shrimp were that she was looking for. Then she started to ask me about lighting and I told her all I knew about that too(I just read a 5 page article about lighting too).

Funny how I knew enough to warrant people wanting to know what I know though. I was hoping to get into a pet shop for a job and this just shows I can if I wanted to.

Be a master of water and the fish will follow

I've never been mistaken for an employee... but I have taught their employees things. One loves chatting with me, even if he doesn't listen to any of my advice :/ if he didn't give me free plants I'd be less inclined to chat with him! :P

Good job Zergy!

BL2000- she means freshwater sharks, like the rainbow shark and the red-tailed shark.

A little five year old came up to me when I was looking at the gourami at Mr Pets and started asking me what they were. Then he asked me where the goldfish were, what size tank they need and what five other fish were.The tin foil barbs, shrimps (asked me what they were twice because he couldn't remeber), discus, gouramis and what fish could go in his tank. I asked him to tell me how big is tank was, although not sure how accurate it was :) and he told me he already had one fish which he thought was a goldfish. He was adorable. I told him to research and I saw him telling a worker he needed to research them. She looked so annoyed! I thought it was the cutest!

Little kids are just the cutest :))
