Hahaha too funny.

I've put an app in at the lfs for a second job and the discounts. Other than that I desperately need a second job If I want to keep playing with sw. I would love to spend 1k on corrals. I've eyed some on liveaquaria for 300each. Let alone the designer clowns I want

Always bargain with the stores! There's such a high mark up that they can knock off 10-20% and still make a huge profit. My LFS has a 200% markup from their wholesale costs. I usually get 10-15% off their listed price

3 out of 4 of my LFS will budge for me. That's how I got 150 lbs of used sand for 40$. Bargain bargain bargain!!! Lol. I tell em- make me happy I come back. If not I go to your competitors. I still go to the others. Lol. But they don't need to know that!

Yep. We had to spend a bunch of cash at first and went in like twice a week before we started getting friendly knock downs. Probably didnt hurt that sweety pie flirted a little.

I have a great supplier now. Really good guy. Since I have been with him so long he give me supplies at his cost plus shipping. And his fish are always lower than online. But I still spend too much.

One lfs ordered for me a few times. If I get there before he empties the bag he is cheaper than online too.

Have to get rid of my 110g and 65g hexagon to pay for the nice toys I want for the 180. Plus one tank is enough for me.
