Most pet stores where I live want you to be dumb as a stump when it comes to animals, so you'll just sell the in house products and not ask questions lol I have been told that I am over qualified to work at my local pet store, in other words, I won't sel their junk and therefore not make huge sales on death traps.

Otos can be touch and go for the first couple days. I hear they use a poison to stun them to catch them and they are basically staRving when you get them. My first two died in the first day and a half ... I went back and the guy gave me some that had been at the store about a week (and getting fed) and these guys are going strong - they even survived an ich infection! And they love a zucchini slice weighted down or clipped.

My closest pet store is an hour away.. more if there is traffic. They know nothing about bettas.. or fish in general, I think. All of their tanks are green and slimy.. I hate going there. But when I am out that way I do go in, just to look. A few months back I was in there and one girl was on the computer at the main desk looking at her facebook page... If they can facebook, they can research the animals they have to care for. I'm sorry but it only takes a few minutes to look up basic care for an animal so they can give the right information. Walmart is the same. I was in there getting paint brushes and couldn't find the ones I wanted, even though the website said they had them.. so the woman pulled up the website right in front of me, found the brushes and looked up the UPS to find them in the store... If they can do that, again, why can't they type it into a search and find out what an animal really needs if they don't know. People are so... odd!
