    Am pleased it's a Friday.
    But have another busy weekend.
    Mainly being a taxi for the kids - taking them to various arrangements and activities.

    So as per a normal Friday at work, my boss and I (both animal lovers) go off to nursery and buy bird seed so we have some entertainment at lunch. While there (in the pet section) I have a look at their fish selection, "koi and bowl goldies". Two decent sized tanks, with all the fish looking pretty dang good actually. Until I looked closer... There were one or two small koi, but their goldies… Comets. Only comets. Everywhere. So I look around for the guy who runs their pet section (he actually seems to know a thing or two or so I thought) is busy helping a customer who is buying a starter set. Straight away he offers them 5 goldfish (comets) to go into the tank they are buying, and tells them in no uncertain terms that they don't need to cycle the tank, that's just a money making scheme. The customer turns to him and said (I laughed a bit too out loud awkwardly) that he follows a blog called TASA and was going to join once he bought the tank to start a thread on it, but has decided to go elsewhere after the cycling comment :lol::thumbup: I stepped in at this point and recommended a LFS for him to head to which I think he did and said we are waiting for his arrival eagerly :D So... moral of the story... My faith in humanity and the aquarium hobby has been restored for the day :D Going back to that nursery for anything fish related.... not a chance.

    Its just so sad to see a LFS do things like this
    They might get the start up money but eventually lose in the long run
    If you help people do things right, they will come bac to you if not they will eventually go elsewhere
    Also very nice to hear that TASA is reaching out there even to non members and making a difference to the hobby!!
