Anywhere between a week and 2 months depending on what your readings are. Please read the sticky.

Some pet stores have excellent staff, others don't. From my experience chain pet stores have much worse staff than fish stores but often they are out for a sale and nothing else.

Goldfish in a freaking tropical tank?

Umm, no. That employee should be fired and never allowed to work anywhere EVER again. Not just a petstore, anywhere, so his reasource dry out and he DIES.

Goldfish need cold water. Also, despite popular ideas, they are very demanding when it comes to space and clean water. No bowls, no still water. Filtration and frequent water changes are a must with goldfish.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
