Shame your store treated you that way. I'm glad Big Al's treats you better. I'm in Ottawa and the Big Al's we go to is great. The staff are much more knowledgeable than our "other" local fish store. They actually seem to keep fish. I also find their stock to be healthier and hardier. We have 26 fish from Big Al's, NONE have died on us yet. I bought 5 fish at the "other" store, 3 died in the first two weeks. The clerk terrorized them getting them out of the tank. I should have just walked away, but the fish were on sale, and I was in idiot. Free advice: Cheap fish aren't a great deal if they're dead. ;)

I'm sure Big Al's will continue to treat you better than that other place.

Like Camry said, if your picture is on the wall as a respected customer and this happened, I would never go back.
I would almost go in there and give your card back and ask for your $25. Tell them you were treated unfairly and will not be coming back, therefor do not need this card.

And where do you live where they need to have a picture list of banned people? Damn.

Your fish store sells people snacks?
If your story is true and your picture is on a wall of banned customers, you should get your parents involved.
If you were my son, we'd go down there and speak to the manager. I'd politely tell him that you were unjustly accused. You did not leave the store with any merchandise and if he does not remove your picture from the wall, I was fully prepared to sue him for defamation of character. I'd tell him he'd lose and ask him if he really wants all the bad press I'd be sure that he'll get.
Of course son, your story needs to be true.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Hang in there.. life has a funny way of keeping things fair. I would write a letter to the owner of the pet store explaining that situation. It has been my experience that calm reasoning can fix issues like this. If they are not willing to be kind and courteous, perhaps another store would be best anyway.
