So, that's how it got started?

Extra small tanks are also nice if your fish start breeding- then you have somewhere to put the fry.

My LFS usually won't sell me fish that are new. In fact, they often won't sell me fish that have been in for a while, if they are suspicious that something is going to go wrong. There's one guy who must work every single day, and refers to all the fish as "his fish", so he knows every single life and death that happens in the shop. Plus- sometimes he hides the cool fish in the plant tanks where no one will notice them and waits for a good fish keeper to come by. I've gotten some really awesome fish that way, who've been thriving in the store for 4+ weeks.

If only we could all have a LFS like that. I found one that's pretty decent, though they're being forced out of their lease (consumer greed by Walgreens), so now they have to move everything to the downtown area. It might be better for business though, and actually closer to me.

This is the song that never ends...
