I`ve seen that kind of LFS before and they dont last long before they close up the business.

Well I must say that one of the three has been in business for 10+ years and is very large. The other 2 are medium sized and have been around for about 5 years. I was espeically shocked at the large store not knowing about fishless cycling and hypo.

Another question. I still show ammonia in the tank...should I be feeding the tank? I think Im right in not needing to feed the tank until it completely cycles right?

Unfortunately, it seems that most LFS would rather get a sale on $4 damsel then provide the correct information to cycle the tank the humane way. Most either don't know or don't care. I must admit, when I first got started in this hobby I did know know about fishless cycling and I did use guppies to originally cycle my first freshwater tank the LFS told me this was the only way

Can someone help me with the question I posted previously? Im in the midst of a cycle. I took the raw shrimp out like 1-2 weeks ago. There is still a small amt of ammonia in the tank. Do I need to "feed" the tank?
