I only buy dry goods from my LFS if there is an emergency. My LFS marks up their dry goods from 90-140%. I buy 99% of my dry goods online.

I support my LFS and buy everything from them if they have it in stock. Then I go online if they don't or wait for them to get it in. I figure if I don't then they'll just disappear and I'll only be able to get livestock online.

Roka64, what kind of lighting are you running? I have a canopy and don't know if I should put more retrofit lighting in there or if it will be better to just get a new lighting system that has more wattage.

nice. Do you have pics of your tank? Are you running a canopy as well or just open air?
