 Chiklet  is  the  common  word  for  cichlids  in  all  LFS  
 zed  zebra=red  chiklet
 yellow  labs=yellow  chiklet
 oscars  is  not  a  cichlid  it  is  completly  diff.
 green  terror=neon  acara
 angels  are  not  cichlids
 arwana
 severum  can  be  kept  with  angel  because  they  have  same  shape....(but  kept  in  two  diff  tanks  in  lfs  and  the  reason  they  give  is  that  they  both  have  diff  rates)
 firemouth=red  belly  chiklet.
 Auratus=auro  (i  guess  this  name  came  after  the  movie  PAA)

 Nice  thread   Chuckle  
 
 Unfortunately  i  dont  have  personal  experiences  offlate  which  i  remember,  LFS  guys  who  know  me  and  who  i  visit  know  better  than  to  give  me  nonsense.  But  i  can  share  LFS's  who  have  given  info  to  people  who  have  contacted  me  for  details.
 
 An  IAH  member  recently  contacted  me  for  some  info  on  Co2  system,  apparantely  his  LFS  told  him  that  a  2  Ltr  Co2  cylinder  will  last  him  2  Years  in  normal  use  !!!
 
 A  filter  needs  to  be  run  for  2  hrs  a  day,  then  switch  off  no  problem  (The  answer  to  our  power  issues  i  guess   Chuckle   )
 
 Let  me  think  of  some  more  and  get  back   Smile

 Here  is  one  more
 
 Ask  your  LFS  how  he  differentiates  between  male  and  female  goldfish.  Here  is  one!
 
 Longer  tails  belong  to  males.  In  a  tank  of  koi  carps  and  golds,  all  the  kois  qualify  as  males

 Once  when  I  was  in  a  LFS,  I  have  seen  a  family  purchasing  things...
 
 I  noticed  the  seller  selling  Aqua  Clay  and  selling  Plastic  Plants!!!!!   Shocked  
 
 He  sold  some  5kg's  soil  for  a  small  imported  tank.  I  was  shocked  to  see  people  buying  things  without  proper  knowledge  and  sellers  utilizing  it  properly..

 Im  greatful  to  some  local  LFS  shops  for  clearing  my  misconceptions  about  fish  and  preventing  me  from  making  some  near  fatal  mistakes  while  choosing  fish
 
 1.  Apparently  cichlid  is  not  correct.  It  is  pronounced  as  either  Chicklet  or  Chichlit.
 2.  Angelfish  are  not  chichlits/chicklets  (one  LFS  guy  was  adamant  on  correcting  this  horrible  mistake)   ROFL  
 3.  Chicklets/Chichlits  are  all  the  same  only  their  colours  are  different   Clapping  (but  oscar,  FH,  etc  fall  under  another  categoy)   Surprised  
 4.  "Kitna  bada  aquarium  hai?  Oh  6  foot,  aaram  se  50-60  machhli  aajayenge"  (and  he  wasnt  referring  to  tiny  fish  like  tetras)   Shocked  
 5.  "4-5  Plecos  daal  do,  poori  tank  saaf  kar  denge"  (forgot  to  ask  -  the  algae  or  the  plants?)   Chuckle  
 6.  "Corydoras  hai?  Nahi  sir,  caradora  hai...abhi  toh  out  of  stock  hai"
 
 What  i  feel,  the  knowledge  and  compatibility  that  they  are  aware  of  in  fish  is  probably  based  on  trial  and  error  method  used  by  them  while  stocking  fish.  So  if  they  havent  noticed  a  Piranha  devouring  a  goldfish  in  their  tank,  they  would  recommend  customers  to  go  ahead  and  put  them  together.

 Pelco/Subkermouth  eats  s**t  of  all  other  fish.   Buy  one  and  you  don't  need  a  filter.
 One  stem  of  Temple  plant  gives  O2  to  your  whole  tank.   Buy  one  and  you  don't  need  an  air  pump.
 Fish  can  turn  around  and  swim.   So  tank  size  is  not  a  matter.
 When  a  Vastu  fish  dies  it  means  it  has  absorbed  something  bad  that  was  supposed  to  happen  to  you.   Just  replace  it  by  next  Friday.

 Very  interesting/informative  topic.  
 
 Once  i  visited  a  aquarium  exhibition  in  Bangalore  (Cubban  park).  I  found  a  dead  fish  floating  upside-down  and  told  the  stall  owner/store  keeper  about  it,  the  reply  I  got..  "Abhi  sone  ka  time  hai..  isliye  so  raha  hai"..  what  more  I  could  say.
 
 An  innocent  visitor  asked  a  shop  keeper,  why  do  you  need  a  thermometer?  The  shop  keeper  replied,  just  like  we  need  a  thermometer,  fish  will  need  to  check  their  temperature  regularly  and  will  eat  their  need  medication  accordingly.
