We’re upgrading our 30 hex tank to a 40 breeder tank and the filter we bought, admittedly intended for tanks of larger sizes, didn’t fit well. Whoops. We go to exchange it for a smaller one and the pet store kindly does, but it’s another opened filter. No big, it smells clean and all but it’s wet like someone misjudged the size, too. Whatever. Get it home and I start putting it together only to find that a clip to the suction part of the filter is broken and can be popped off with minimal effort… So now we gotta exchange it again. Grrrr.
Go to open the box for the glass lid, and the corner is chipped pretty hard. So now that needs to be exchanged and I get to be ~that customer~ that is quietly flipping their lid and trying not to take it out on the employees, while simultaneously wasting their time asking them to open the next packages in front of me to verify that they’re not fucking broken. Because fuck you I don’t want to drive into town AGAIN to replace stuff I thought was ready to go.
And basically I’m just angry because moving the inhabitants of this tall ass hex tank is already going to be stressful as shit but we hate this fucking tank so y’know I’m just like
I just want this hex tank torn down and out of my life plz
Worst thing is we have to catch a lot of bottom feeders like the kuhli loaches and just fuck me with a rake
Don’t get a hex tank they’re awesome looking but no fun to clean or take down.
