Keep in mind that if they sell you something and it dies, that the tendency is to bad mouth the LFS to as many people that will listen. However, if you buy something and it lives, you don't tell anyone as you "expect" them to live. By insuring that your water is correctly balanced to handle something like sensitive shrimp, they are helping to insure their good reputation. I commend them as well. They obviously care about more than just making repeated sales due to dead sealife.

Sirlight, Im getting a 2 in 1 cal and alk thingy.

Billy,
I do like you do sometimes... I ask a Q to see how they answer me. So far they answered the right way (like discouraged me from that seahorse)

So far they havent told me anything that led me astray (mainly cuz I ask all my questions on here so I dont ask them much)


Hara, Well I do commend them for the more quality life than you will normally find.

Someone on here suggested their prices are overpriced because the fish come from a repuatable dealer who sells quality life.

That doesnt explain the overprised dry good though

This LFS will still sell you anything though if you come in there acting like you know what you want.

sometimes you gotta trade higher prices for a better quality store. Sounds like you have a good one.

any luck remembering what it was they wanted you to raise in your water?

Are you that paranoid about local pets shops, that you feel they will jack only YOUR prices up because you asked a question?

Give them a call back and ask them what it was your tank was missing. Once they give you the answer post back to the board and we can tell you if its accurate or not.

Again I think your spouting off about something you don't know anything about and need to get the story straight and then complain if they are wrong.

that's your choice... but if you call them now and ask, you might be able to address what it is they're asking you to fix before you go back and you might be able to actually get that shrimp when you go back up there in a couple weeks... come on now.. take some initiative and pick up the phone
