They've really helped me care for my fish
SYRACUSE, NEW YORK -- I started keeping fish as pets last week. Originally I picked up a couple of items at Wally-world but then I started going to Pet Smart because they're more convenient to go to.
The employees have been helpful - advice on how to maintain my fish tanks properly, how many fish I can realistically put in a tank, even free pamphlets on fish care for multiple breeds (I also have a betta in separate 1.5 Gallon tank).
Today I picked up a second goldfish and the woman I spoke to helped me with advise on how to acclimate the new fish into the tank (15 minutes in the bag, give the other fish a snack in the meantime)...
The only trouble I had was that the filter wasn't filtering, wasn't passing any water at all, so I took it back and happened to speak to the same woman. She looked at the filter and saw what I was doing wrong - I didn't put any water in the filter.
So I went home, tried that and... now it's filtering quite nicely.
