Im from Illinois but I have been to TWP
, agreed its overpriced and service leaves something to be desired but I did like their selection and their display tanks are awesome. Im interested to know what the best SW
store in that area is. I also have to add The Fishman in Springfield may seem a little over priced especially on accessories but as I have dealt with many stores in the area I have never been misled on advise or bought a poor piece of livestock from them. I cant say that about many other LFS
's (pekin, bloomington) (one store in pekin compleaty took advantage of my newbeeness and another store sold me a sick fish and then forgot I was even in their store. At the fishman stock can be hit or miss, in the SW
section especially, but its a good store none the less.
