Sorry for your loss...the Copperband is one of my personal favorites. I have a good thing going with my LFS
. The manager has been in the business for years and he is very kowlegable...never lead me astray. he is there to educate, not to sell. Good education with good customer service will bring back repeat customers and generate positive word of mouth. If I am looking for a certain fish, he will order it for me. He calls me when it comes in and I pick it up in the bag it was shipped in, bring it home and right into my QT
tank it goes. This saves a lot of stress on the fish over numerious nettings and tank changes. He knows my set up and if I have a loss he just gives me store credit, no questions asked. Pick a LFS
you trust and develope a good relationship with them and you will be surprised of the "percs" that come with it.
