OK so now I'm mantis shrimp paranoid! Is LFS LR
more likely to be M shrimp free for some reason? I do try to support local small businesses, but my LFSs have a so-so selection. Minimal life, almost all boulder shape, plus twice the price. Maybe thats a good thing b/c all hitch hikers, good and bad, are gone? Anything else to look out for on Ocean cultured LR
like the (Aip...) anenomie?
I've always wondered about LFS
hygiene. It looks like the tanks work off a single or just a few salt water circuits. Making it easy to circulate all kinds of bad things.
I need to drive 2 hours to get to a really good store & will see what they have. Maybe I'll do a base of the ocean cultured LR
and pick premium pieces as I can find them . I'm in no hurry. Thanks for the great comments!
