I wish there was a really good lfs
around here. I have one that seems to have good intentions yet they keep like 5 arrowanas (although the biggest tank is like 120g). Plus the last fish I got from there (3 acei) got columnaris, although I don't blame tht on the store but their supplier which makes me wary to order from them again. They're also quite pricey but they do test customers water with a liquid test kit for free and don't let them buy any fish unless parameters are in check.
Then I have another lfs
that almost tries to look bad. They keep fancy goldfish with cichlids, one employee tapped on the glass with her long finger nails because one of the fish was lethargic, they also test water but for .50 cents and with test strips, the list goes on. From now on, if I ever go in there it's for dry goods only, if that.
If I had to chose I would definitely order from the first one but I don't need many fish anymore (other than for my 10g) so I'm gonna try online (from members on this site).
