Agreed. Be VERY thankful you have a lfs
that is willing to say, "if I sell this to you it won't survive, so I won't sell it to you." most lfs
will think to themselves, "hey, if it dies, he'll come back and buy another one" and happily sell you the shrimp, not caring for you or the shrimp or you tank, only about making that $14.95 on the shrimp sale.
Now take it with a grain of salt to, make sure he's not just trying to get you to buy other additives. Call him back, BE POLITE, and ask him what it was he said you needed to raise before he'd sell you the shrimp. Then test your water for that yourself and let us know what he said and what you have tested for.
