Was just there yesterday and got my pearl gourami! How knowledgable and helpful they are depends on who you talk to. I have had some less than helpful conversations and intereactions with them, but generally am pretty happy. Like all LFS
you have to do your own research and use them as a tool in your decisions since many things in this hobby are based on opinions. Yesterday was great! Both staffers I talked to were helpful. One did recommend against getting a certain fish that I came home to research again and have decided to get anyway when I have room for it.
