In my opinion, your lfs
is being fair on the fact that he has only marked them up 25%. but i would also
check with him what come backs you have if they all die.
basically all you lfs
is doing is giving you a drop off point for the fish for you to collect. If he was having them delivered to himself for a marine section he would quarentine them before sale. But because you are collecting them straight away he has put that down to you.
It might work out in your favour, but it could also work out to be a waste of money if they all die.
