When I was buying my two VT girls Mimosa and Electra, the sales lady asked me if they were going in with a male betta "because everyone who knows about bettas knows that they'll be much MUCH happier!" "Now why would I ever do that? They'll get their own tanks!" I said back to her (perhaps came off as a little snobby, but oh well :/). And she looked at me like I had three heads and was painted green.

And just recently a salesperson asked me if bettas can live in brackish .... O_o I was like ... "noooooo ....."

Not really crazy, but a while ago a petshop man (really high end fish-only shop, savvy about most things) told me I ought to flush my betta and her guppy companions because they were all female and therefore ugly. I was quite apalled.
Then he laughed at me when I said I liked bettas because they were 'pet fish' and that I didn't just keep fish for asthetic reasons.

Corn snake and king snake bought at Petsmart, they told me that because they were small that I needed to feed them crickets... If I didn't know any better I would have killed my snakes.

Lol wow.... Well the pet store here, the owner of the store has bettas in with blind cave tetras (wonderful), danios (pretty good), the mellow with guppies (occasional nipped fin but nothing drastic), neon tetras (very good).... The girl tosses them willy nilly into wherever she thinks they'll fit. Rosy barbs. Cichlids. Gouramis. Grumpy betta with guppies. A-should-be-alone betta with a slow critter (like snails and plecos). Betta with glass and ghost shrimp, no plants.
