Funny woman

Postby Darkprincess on Sat Feb 11, 2006 6:20 am

I went to a local pet store to see their snails. When i asked the woman to see the snails.. she showed me a tank with empty shells !!! :angry: and then she tried to sell me the tiny pest snails infesting another tank!!

How can she be so stupid and not see that these snails where dead, or should i say totally non-existent haha

I will never go there again. :x

I know i have been to more than 1 store that has little to tons of empty shells and in my experence,thay just do not care to them it is just a empty shell instead of a life lost,and that is sad.

my "ever-wise" boss (the one who looks at me like I'm stupid whenever I make a fish care suggestion) moved all the clown loaches into the snail tank last week while I was still on leave....he can't figure out why all his snails are dead now :toomuch:

poor snails :(

I had to rescued 2 snails from a petshop a month ago..they were in a tank with some fishes that were trying to eat them... all the snails in there were 1-dead or 2-floating to escape the fishes.

I bought the snails that were looking more healthy/no shell broken

I think they are now traumatized for the rest of their life because they always stay on top of the water or closed in the bottom...even if it's a snail only tank.

I work at a petstore and I agree, we don't know much about the snails(until now :D ) but we know a lot more than some of these other places you guys are talking about. For instance, I didn't know you should add calcium to the water, but it makes perfect sense. However, we do know that loaches (especially clown) will eat snails (we reccommend them for people who have pest snails). We also keep them seperate from the fish because we have mild doses of salt in our system and know that's no good for snails. My manager also isn't really a people person and he looks at me stupid also if I make any suggestion or disagree w/ him. I am going to school for reptiles, volunteer/work at the local zoo, do tons of research,etc and he went up to a customer once and said, "if you have any questions[about reptile] you can ask her, she think she knows about reptiles." Um that's professional. Next day I'm in snail education starts!

Wow, this is an old thread! Well, if it makes anyone feel better, my boss is now even more stupid than the one that put the loaches in the snail tank....unfortunately causing even more casualties, she put the blue gouramis in with the african cichlids because she couldn't tell the difference between the two!

Aw shucks :oops: :D
I can't be too humble though, because many of my customers say the same thing and have asked me what fish I will personally have available after I quit my current job b/c they don't want to buy from my employer after that.
