Hi
2 more for $12.50?
Could it be they are clearing this item out? Maybe its discontinued. Anyway, I'd buy them for 12.50 each if I came across them as a consumer (I'm not interested in getting involved with the back and forth) Any chance of letting me know which Pertsmart I can pick them up at?
Thanks
Dan

Also ..............addicted,  I note that you edited out the part about the forum and club being "clickey" from your original post(which by the way is spelled "cliquey",  it's an odd little thing called a homonym)   Why?  Inquiring minds want to know?????


IMHO, I appreciate posts that are edited for content.  I think we all have seen forum contributors who have edited (or in some cases deleted) their original posts that have contained juvenile, pointless, or sometimes cruel thoughts.  Getting the opportunity to reconsider something one has posted without thought and/or too much emotion should be encouraged.


exactly why i edited my post.  must be nice to go look up others peoples original posts and put it in your post for all to read what i thought to be stooping to your level of comprehension.  and editted accordingly.


sawboy thanks for the spelling lesson.

ps:  its time for a new mirror.

girl picked up at bar:  oh wow u have alot of fishies in here, arent they supposed to be gold, like goldfish...  why arent these ones gold, oh that one is so ugly, why would u have more than one tank....  (she carried on for about 10 mins).

me:  please get out of my house.

Oh yeah yesterday before i was leaving i was checking out the lighting system again. I wanted to make sure i got the right size bulbs. But i noticed they put out 2 more 36" single bulb lighting systems for $12.50. So now i dont know if it was a mistake or not, they may just want to get ride of the extras becuase they are taking up space. I didnt as becuase i was in a hurry to get home i had other plans to get too. But if you dont believe me go check it out yourself. ;)

Thanks dude. I bought the bulbs yesteday and the tank looks amazing. Its just amazing how a new set of lighting can change a tanks look. The fish have so much more color now! There where some i wanted to sell but now that i got the new lighting it is bringing out their colors so much more. I am so happy with it. Im going to do a before and after picture to show the difference.

But yeah at petsmart i am know a the "fish expert". I have had a couple of custumers say its finally time they have gotten someone who knows stuff about fish. There is now 1-2 people only come when i am working there, just becuase they know i know what i am talking. Some of the people i work with ask me questions about fish and stuff just becuase i am better at it then them and they have been there much longer then me. So its okay addicted2cichlids, i can understand the frustration. I wont take it personally. ;)

You gotta be kidding?  You support ripping off your boss?  It's not the fact that it's Petsmart.....IT'S HIS EMPLOYER.  It is WRONG WRONG WRONG to do that to your employer. It's theft. You work at Aquarioum Adventure in Bolingbrook right? You sure as heck better hope that anyone who works with you and is in to fish that might be a user of this site doesn't see this and point this out to your boss.  Nothing like putting in black and white that you are a thief.


not kidding. and im no thief.  i dont work there.  and if management doesnt have the proper prices on there products then its there own fault.  myself, my management, and my fellow co-workers make sure the proper prices are on our merchandise, so things like this dont occur.


If you support stealing from your employer,  that makes you a thief.  Mistakes happen and it is just plain wrong for an employee to steal from the hand that feeds him.

if something that is supposed to be marked over 100$ gets sold for under 20$ then there is a major problem with how the store is being run, not the customer reaping the benefits.


Mbamba is NOT a customer reaping benefits......he is an employee.  I don't know how to make this any clearer to you.  Hopefully you can see the difference between "customer" and "employee".  If not,  a quick look at a dictionary will make it real easy.

my manager would have no problem with me taking advantage of petsmart's ignorance.  do u have any idea how many tanks ive resurrected after hearing "well the guy at petsmart said":  (enter rediculous fish advise here). no offense mbamba, but its something i hear daily.


I have no problem with you doing it either.  I have a problem with someone endorsing stealing from their employer.  Which is what you did.

if that is there price, and i pay that price, then i have done nothing wrong.  why is it my job as a consumer to tell them what there prices should be.  if i make an employee purchase at my job a manager has to ring me up, so something like this would never happen at AA.


Sigh........it is not the job of the consumer to point it out to the retailer.  It IS however the PAID JOB of the employee to point it out!!!

Sawboy u need to watch how u address people, calling someone a thief is quite a disrespectful title to give. 


I call it like I see it man.  I don't dance if I don't like the music,  and I don't scratch it unless it itches. 

and u really come off as whiney, it's a little obnoxious.


If that's the way you percieve it,  then that's fine by me.  I have been called much worse by way better.  I sleep fine at night,  and like the guy I see in the mirror.

mbamba, im sorry your thread is causing such a fuss, im glad u got your lights for cheap. 


Mbamba,  it's not that you got the lights for cheap.  It's how you got the lights.  You have even come to recognize this yourself.  So I give you a lot of credit for that.  You seem to be able to learn from mistakes.

Also ..............addicted,  I note that you edited out the part about the forum and club being "clickey" from your original post(which by the way is spelled "cliquey",  it's an odd little thing called a homonym)   Why?  Inquiring minds want to know?????

Yeah the cat is out of the bag as you can say and their is difference in opinions.

But i can see your guys points now that you point them out. But it was something that you see and dont think about until later. Thats what i did. But doesnt mean i am going to go return them and then pay more for them. That would be stupid, they would look at me are you kidding me.

But  can see what you guys mean. If that all just made any sense. :D
