Some of the guys at my LFS are incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. It all depends on how much the owner cares about having good help!

I argree with Mister Sparkle about its up to the owner about hirering good help, but the petsmarts and petcos here in colorado don't seem to know what their talking about when it comes to curtine animals and their care. I mean like i said in my first post I listened to their advice bout everything they said that I needed and if I kept the filter cleaned and it clorinated really good then the fish should be fine. I did all that and my sons fish died although the female in the same tank didn't. so now I'm changing that water ever three days and only feeding twice a day as directed on the food bottle and playing with them with a mirror (my son loves to do this and see how they react) at night for their exercie untill I can get them into a bigger tank. They seem happy and both my male and female made bubblenest yesterday while I was at work.

You sound like a very responsible teen who loves animals and that you do your best to educate your customers (and fellow co-workers). I think it is great that your store goes out of its way to try and help the animals you sell.

Very nice aquarium set up too!

And just for the record, I do work at a pet store (a large chain type) and we do everything for our animals. We get in trouble all the time for doing stuff we're not supposed to be doing (for the good of the animals, like setting up filtered/heated tanks in the back for the bettas with fin rot which we're not allowed to do, but we do anyway). We all do our research as much as possible for each type of fish and are actually tested on our knowledge from time to time. Unfortunately it's such a rare thing for pet stores to do any sort of thing like that. And I'm only 17 as well, while many think all the 'teens' are just there for money and know nothing of the care needed for any animal. I always urge people away from the bowls and such with all of my being.

ANYWAY, bigger is always better!
Here's my tank:

Mind you the plants have filled in a lot so there's more coverage :)
