2 nj lfs-very funny comment


Called a 2 lfs-local fish store-today to ask if they sell parts for an EHEIM

STORE NUMBER 1

girl: Hello ty for calling -------------
me: do you carry parts for an eheim 2213
girl: is that a fish tank model
me: (trying to hold back the laughter) no its a canister filter
girl: how do you spell ehem?
me: E-H-E-I-M
girl:let me check
(in a very low voice askes her boss or workmate)
do we have ehem canister filter 13
comes pack and says yes we can have one by friday
me: i am looking for a specific part not the whole filter
girl: ok -then no --we have no EHEM parts


STORE NUMBER 2

man: thank you calling tropaquarium
me: do you carry parts for an eheim 2213
man: yes-we are one of the original carriers of eheims
chances are you just need an impelor or shaft
bring it in a we will check it for you clean it and install the parts for free
me: i'll be right there

Tropiquarium is a pretty amazing fish store. Gary, the owner, is super helpful. Was there yesterday - they are selling tanks at cost and get second fish at 50% off. Pretty crazy deal. they also have these custom terrarium tanks that are very cool. Worth a ride for sure!

Floham Park is super close to me. Check out Ely's if you haven't already.

Tropiquarium is great ... I just started going there about 2 weeks ago, and wow what a difference getting fish from a place like that instead of the big chain pet stores I've been used to.
