I have a lfs that I have issues with as well. I still always stop in and look. They supported freshwater for a decade and I bought my dog there as well. Things were rough, but they seem to be improving as I've bought most of my cool inverts from them and they are still kicking.

Seems lfs' are just like any other business. Bunch of lousy ones with the occasional good one. Found a really good one in my area and they get ALL of my business. This hobby is to costly to give business to mediocre/poor stores.

Very true, however my LFS isn't really a bad store, I mean I bought all of my other saltwater stuff here and my freshwater fish for that matter, nothing has ever died the way it has recently.

And they can only get the stock the distributors send to them. Was just pointing out that all stores are not created equally.

No I hear ya Sean, you're absolutely right. I'm just weary on buying more fish because, well, let's face it, no one likes wasting money lol

Just bought
6 nassarrius snails
3 margarita snails
1 sand sifiting snail

Think that should be enough for the time being
