I am not new to fish keeping, I have had aquariums since I was 12 ( a mere 9 years..) But I am new to the many different types of species, except the well known angels and such.
A while back, I bought 5 new "mollies" to go into my tank, 2 dalmation and 3 sunburst...
Turned out the sunburst mollies were actually sunburst platys (which would be why I could never find anything on the internet about Sunburst Mollies)

I went into the same LFS today, and they have them correctly marked...

Tsk tsk @ LFS! Box stores...

ANyone else have something like this happen?


And Platy's dont need any special treatment do they?

Platies dont need any special treatment. But I and a lot of other people have had just the opposite happen. We knew what the fish was, but it was marked as something else, needless to say we got a great deal. I heard of someone I met that went in and saw an arowana, they argued that it was a glass cat fish. He bought an Arowana for 4 dollars.

Lmao, I love stupidity of workers. One guy wanted to argue with me about something once too, cause he thought he was right and he was soooo off. When you work at walmart, you usually arent that skilled in all that many things. No offense to any walmart workers =p

I snagged two lyre tail swordtails from walmart for a buck fifty insteasd of six because the tag was gone.

I love it when people who are supposed to be specialists don't know the difference between male and female swords! The guy was actually the manager of the department!
