thanks for your input there :)
next visit i will try to pick a member with whoom(sp?)
i think might be able to advise....
what store is it? Its definitely hard to find good help at a fish store because i've worked at fish stores and fellow employees always try to sound confident even when they don't know what they are talking about. I've had to take customers aside and correct my own employees before...not fun.
good! Its rare to find good staff, especially at larger chains like petco and petsmart. I know the store I buy from uses salt so I drip acclimate any sensitive fish I buy from them. If you want a good reason why NOT to use salt just let me know and i'll go off, haha.
i totally agree with the staffing problem,
i went to a shop and bought some Angel fish
the ones i chose looked perfect,i did not however
watch the whole time,and did not realise until i got home
that one Angel has got damaged fins.
they are bent inward.
