Many pet shops (NOT all) will give advice which can be dodgy to say the least. They will often advise start up kits which can be over priced and often contain things that you don't need (such as lamps), things that you really should avoid (such as calci-sand) and don't contain things that are essential (such as thermostats). The staff will do their best but are not usually specialists and not really able to advise on things like supplements. Some livestock from pet shops has been kept in sub-optimal conditions, often for long periods, and will therefore not be as healthy as they could be. It all depends on the shop but some are shockers!
