Yeah id have to agree. Its extremely hard for a lfs to carry the vast amounts of species that online stores do. Dont be worried, most online stores include a 14 day guarantee, even on sw fish

Thank you for your input, not gonna be ordering for prob 2-3 months , today was maintence mondays! Did a 30g pwc on the beast about an hour ago, heres the numbers BEFORE pwc
Ammo 0
Trites- 0
Trates 20-30
Temp 82
Sg 1.027 (yikes)
Ph 8.2
Will be retesting in a few, must say im surprised by the trates being so relatively low, thats 13 days since the last pwc...dang good for a non tweeked setup. Wait till I get anpther 100lbs of sand, 1050 hydors, and a custom sump.
Also did a 4g pwc on my sons 10g guppy tank, and cleaned the filter. Ohh I also cleaned the filter floss and tge protein skimmer on the sw tank.
Spent 2 hours scrubbing the overflows, what a difference, also flipped the black baclground for the blue....amazing difference. Results in a few

Trates are at 5-10!!! Sg is sitting at 1.025. (love it) also decided to cut up some filter floss and place in the outlets of the overflow into my refuge.. Was looking at the tank and noticed tiny particles floating arpund.. its gone down considerably
