Meh I almost tried that but I figured constantly working in a fish store, I'll be sick of doing it when I get home and have to do the same things with my fish tanks.

Both of you should go for it if you can afford to work for that. Instead of complaining about bad advice, go out and give better. Good luck.

That's what I'm shooting for and I also want to setup a saltwater tank but want experience before I put money into it.

Sean, someone told me before if I could maintain a brackish tank, salt water would be easy. Brackish tanks are easy to convert to straight salt water. Just will have to change up your stock. Good luck on the job interview

Awesome, John!
You know, the local Petco people are almost always asking me what kind of tank I'm going to put the fish I'm buying into, and one even wouldn't sell me any replacement fish because our water levels weren't awesome, so maybe you can get away with giving good advice and not get into trouble

The Petcos always strike me as trying to better than their rivals. Success varies. Have fun, bite your tongue and save your truthful bluntness for us. Hiring someone who can tell a malawi peocock from a peacock bass is step in the right direction.
