I havnt been ripped off so far, usually I just flirt with the girl that waits on me and she usually gives me about 4 dozen goldfish instead of 2. Then when I get to the checkout, they always ask me "how many is in here" I say "two dozen" they look at me like im crazy.

They did get you pretty good, we give what we would pay through our distributor and sell it accordingly....we sell 12" ones for about the same price so you would certainly gotten more, bout twice what they gave you.

A 400% turnover is financial rape in my book on anything common - semi-rare or even highly seasonal....

A double-double an 1/2 markup is the norm for the places ive worked for. I always think that CR anything should be more as it is more likley to live than WC if it was properly cared for, but all credit/trade ins are circumstantial....even with that said, and all things in my mind considered thats getting over on someone.

Even if this was a matter of screwing over, the LFS didn't screw you over - you let the LFS screw you over: you accepted the stress zyme deal - whatever they did afterwards with your pleco has nothing to do with you, certainly not screwing you over.
And selling fish from fish keepers and then selling it with profit is common practice: just about any LFS does that (and why not? It's a business), so you could have known.

So I don't see any justification for complaints...

Stores never really give you much I have found. I traded in a dozen exodons for $30. and felt a bit ripped off, but as everyone has pointed out, it is a Buiseness. I also get deals on other needs depending on where I go and who is working.

From now on instead of going to a middleman (your LFS) you could try selling it to someone directly and keep all of the money yourself.

I do understand however, that it is really annoying when people take your stuff and sell it for a ton more than they gave you for it.
