I've purchased all of my fish from either him, or the petco on walden. Yes, I said petco. They've all been very healthy every time I've gone there. Haven't had one die yet.

you are right jim i have also purchased fish from the petco on walden and transit road. both stores are very clean and take care of there fish. i know you guys and girls will laugh but my initial purchase of fish came from walmart on transit in williamsville. i know the person who works there and she takes care of the fish like they are her own. i have not had one of those fish die yet and it has been 8 months, and 2 tank sizes. the other store near me is td swordtail. not had any good luck there, very dirty tanks and most fish have died from him. dont go there anymore.

there is a store in the transit town plaza on transit right across main st from eastern hills mall. i do not reccomend this store at all. the last time i went in the tanks look really bad and all the fish were not even labeled properly.

don't feal bad nicracing. i got my origonal fish from walmart in lockport. horrible and i will never do it again. only had one out of 15 live.

otherwise i also do alot of shopping at the petsmart on transit in the BJ's Plaza. really clean and healthy fish.

When I get to go home South Buffalo, I always like to see what Seneca Pet and Supply has. They have a fairly large selection of fresh water fish. It right on Seneca St. heading towards downtown. It's inbetween the old Hills/Ames plaza and Indian Church St., have to keep your eyes peeled. It's almolst righ tacross the street from where the Caz (Caznovia Park) Carnival takes place The small staff (two owners, unless one has passed away, and a young guy) are knowledgeable and helpful. Don't let the outside scare you, that area of Buffalo is kinda run down.

There's also Marine Oasis, on Ridge Road a ways west of Rochester (in Spencerport, maybe.)

They have a really packed equiptment area, and a selection of both fresh and saltwater fish. Thier large equiptment area isn't browsable, and the coral tanks right near the door don't look too impressive, but ignore that and head into the back.

All the tanks looked clean and the fish healthy with the exception of one tank had couple dead fish in the bottom, that tank was marked as "not for sale". Their SW selection was much more limited, although it appeared as though they were setting up a few additional SW tanks, they may be in the process of expanding their SW selection.
Their web address is http://markheim.com I actually designed it for her. Its nothing special, she only wanted a quickie. Nothing like the one my brother and I did for http://tenecor.com

So what LFS has the best prices on fish? I haven't got to the point yet but I will be soon. I'm in the 290/blvd area. I've heard buying online can be pretty cheap.

Most places I've looked at either have a huge minimum order, or charge a hefty bit for shipping. It doesn't seem worth it unless you're getting something already expensive, rare, or are splitting an order with another local hobbyist.
