Most of the people I know who work in the fish business or own fish stores do something on the side to make ends meet. The only two guys I know who do only fish run a huge breeding program (75+ tanks each) at their houses to supply many of the fish they have in their store.

Lol! They might as well be drunk catching fish with their hands. The fish I had the new owner get me, it was hard to watch. She has no idea how to handle and net fish properly, or safely. She netted a fish I didn't want (veil tail cherry barb), but I took it anyway to give it a better home, since I already have 3 veil tails that would like the new guy :)

To add to everyone's posts: The original owners really new their stuff. I went in there never having a fish tank and she taught me everything I knew. She gave me a great foundation. She had over 100 tanks of exotic freashwater and marine fish, awesome selection.

She netted bronze cories and when I told her she said, " So you don't want the BLACK MOLLIES" Why are you even working here?????!!!!!!

Damn!! That's bad! One should have to pass a test on basic fishkeeping before they are aloud to handle the fish. I'm a cop, people are idiots, trust me. Especially younger generations, they are the future of our world?! Not good! Because of texting and our highly social society they can't even spell properly, really sad. I also drive a school bus, so I can really back up my claim.

I agree that they should have to pass a test to get the job. But I'm the younger generation and although we can be slow most of the time, we're truely bright once we put our to it. My county always scores high on test.

I'm 26, so I'm young too. So I'm dissing on myself, please understand, I mean no disrespect. I feel older than I am, always have. Maybe you are one of those type of people too. Or you are the very few who have a clue. At my bus driving job, I transport 50 middle schoolers, 4 of them show signs of hope.

Back on topic, maybe we should start a national standardized test on fishkeeping for employees, lol!

I'm 14 and in middle school lol, but I'm smart, not neardy uncool smart,but advanced classes smart. I can be childish but for the most part I'm a child lol. I do use some words that kids wouldn't normally use and don't understand, I have to explain lol. I tell them I have a expanded vocaburaly. But don't get me wrong I'm super funny and I can be crazy and LOUD!!!

Lol! It's all good man! I thank you for being a respectful person! If you ride a school bus, be nice to your bus driver. Most of the time, they are smart people.
