Cool - he actually told me that I should be target feeding them - I kinda figured he might have bene going overboard.
To their credit however, and the reason that I'll still shop there sometimes - its probably closer to 150 polyps than to 50 (I'm a terrible guesstimator - will post a pic later when they're in and open).
I'm fortunate I guess - I have 2 LFS
within 5 miles of me. One of them gives FANTASTIC advice and is happy to talk shop...but his stock (especially lately) is very limited, and his prices on corals are quite high (this chunk would have been 60 bucks at his place, easily)...the other shop has great prices and huge stock lists, but I really don't trust a single thing they tell me or anyone else.
This, obviously, wasn't a huge lie or anything - but I've seen them push inappropriate fish for situations (i.e. a copper banded to a newbie to the hobby with a 14 gallon tank). Needless to say, I don't shop there often unless the first place is REALLY hurting for stock, which they have been the last couple months.
