When I was a kid, I put my goldfish in an above ground swimming pool in the fall. The pool froze over in winter. In spring, amazingly he was still alive, so I caught him and put him back in the 10 gallon tank, but he died soon after.

Sad he died but wow I knew they liked cold water and all Koi survive freezes like that too i read about a guy in new jersey who did that when he drained the pool of bug larvae and algae he caught the healthiest black molly he had ever seen.

She may have been someone having a bad day and just told her kid whatever they wanted so she could get home lol But on the other hand, yes she could have been someone who knew little, or someone who probably joined this forum shortly after getting it.
My mother puts up with me. I consider my mom patient. My mom is the mother of two children one who is a bit annoying with attention problems and still learning sociol skill ths other APD the one with attention problems is autistic the those kind of parents are very patient.

That's crazy! My LFS won't even sell me plants (marimo moss balls) until my tank was done being medicated and a water sample proved sufficient nutrients (due to a recent decline in all nitrates, ammonia, and nitrites to zero) lol.

actually that in my opinion is good medication can kill plants. For example if you put algae killer in there it would kill marimo. They seem to be caring for their stock well.

The problem is not only ignornat people but also ignorant lfs employees. My friend from overseas is planning on getting a betta after i showed her photos of my new guy. She's planning a 6 gallon tank which i think is great, however she went to the lfs and the guy recommended she put in neon tetras with her betta and some large snails. I've managed to talk her out of the tetras, i just think her new betta will be happier by itself. The guy at the lfs shouldn't be recommending these things, luckily my friend has now been directed to this site and is willing to learn.

Oh don't worry, I knew that, and I was asking for future reference at the store, but he assumed I wanted them right then, and was like "nooo! Not until your tank is all better" Lol. And I thought it was actually a great thing :P I wasn't complaining so much as shocked at the difference between great employees and the crap people are talking about here :P

Oh sorry if I offended you but that is great when pet stores make sure the pets get good homes.
