has no guarantee but will order and hold fish for me. He is honest and doesn't just sell fish to sell them. His fish are not guaranteed when he purchases them and that's why I guess customers do not get a guarantee. He said he's been buying fish from the same place for over 20 years and doesn't intend to change. I feel if the fish live in his tanks for over a week looks healthy and eats readily then you should be in good shape. On the topic I have only 1 LFS
that has a 14 day 50% guarantee 1 hour away. Everyone else has the out the door and no more.
I feel 99% of the online vendors have livestock that was captured by chemical poisoning instead of net caught and are mailing them. So, their 7 day guarantee is great because your poisoned fish will be dead in just a few days
and you get your money back but lose $30 in shipping. I lost a Flame angel because of this and I then chose to pay over double from my LFS
because I could view it and wait over a week to pay for it. If it dies then it's his loss. And I feel comfortable that he is not going to order fish that he is going to lose.
This practice is goining to lead to species being very depleted and extinct and could cause problems for shipping of livestock. Regardless where you buy your fish they are shipped most likely from CA
sometime or another.
The no guarantee seems fair if you know that the LFS
isn't selling you something that is guaranteed to them. But think about it, if they had a guarantee on their fish from their supplier, then they would guarantee your fish because they would need your dead fish to cash in the dead. But who buys a fish on the same day the LFS
gets the fish so that the LFS
could honor the 7 day guarantee that they have on the fish! Make and sense?
Sorry to ramble but i've recently experienced this "Guarantee" from a on-line vendor and I will buy LFS
only from know on.
One last thing,
Hey BEARFAN Good luck with K
. Stewart. Better in Chicago than in Miami
. You will see why Pittsburgh got rid of him. Don't worry he'll pull through in pressure situations :P. I have QB problems in Miami myself.
