I'm looking for a new heater for my 2.5 gallon. So I was calling a pet supply store to see what they had in stock. The answer I get? "You can't put a heater in a plastic tank." I was a little shocked by the abrupt answer, but I explained that I actually already had a heater in there, I was just looking to replace it with an adjustable one. She snapped at me again that I couldn't put a heater in a plastic tank. I was getting a little frustrated, so I just asked her which heaters she had in stock and she once again snapped at me that I couldn't use a heater in a plastic tank. Entirely frustrated, I simply said thank you and hung up the phone.
I have never been spoken to so rudely when calling a pet store like that! I have had a heater in my acrylic tank for a month and a half and NOTHING has melted. The worst that has happened are small spikes in temperature because the heater is unreliable, but nothing near hot enough to MELT PLASTIC. That the girl snapped at me several times and refused to even tell me what they had in stock is absolutely absurd!
Anyone else had bad experiences with pet store employees?
