At least you'll be sending the newly purchased bettas off to a better home because the new owners will be armed with some proper knowledge that they wouldn't have otherwise because of you!! If PetSmart would hire people with know-how they wouldn't get such a bum rap.

Hey, you forgot to tell us how old you are!!

I'm 47. I'll take advice from anyone as long as they aren't smart-alecky about the advice they give.

Me too. Don't feel bad about it. Our customers need knowledgable employees to help them. Being active on this forum really has increased my knowledge base and I can truely call myself a fresh water expert. (But not an bird expert, oh gosh birds and I don't get along.)


Oh, and 27 - about 10 years of fish keeping, but most of that was when I was younger.

try and gain a birds confidance by winking at them,now i know
once you've finished laughing your going to wonder what on earth
i'm on about,well if you blink Very often and wink at you it
takes you out of being a predator ! you see if you are stalking something
you stare at it,well by blinking shows your not wanting to eat
said bird.most birds will be very wary of you,due to the stressfull
contidions of a pet store,slow quiet movements,quiet soft spoken.
won't come into play if you have to catch them,just may help
you a little.

Thanks, I am just not a bird person. Plus all we have are little birds. I get along with parrots and other big birds

I was never a bird person either until a friend of mine asked me take care of his parrot while he vacationed in Mexico. My friend never returned from Mexico so I was stuck with a bird that hated me. Fast forward three weeks later and that parrot thought I was his mate. He still does

Not to get too off topic...my parrot is 20 years old (a mere teenager in bird years) but acts like a darn 2 year old!

I agree, expierience is much more helpful and does not discriminate. I have met more than a few college educated Idiots and some very smart children for I work for the local school district. At 52 I am dumbstruck at first graders whose computer skills are far in advance of their age.
