I would rant about my LFS but only in a good way. I trust that store and all its employees.

I bought my 75 gallon tank from them and at the time of pick up I thought about getting a pair of gbr. He wouldn't sell them to me if they were for the 75. It was only until I explained to him that the 75 was replacing a another established tank that he was willing to sell me more fish. I never did get any fish that day but the fact he was concerned about the new tank and what was going into it was enough for me.

They do offer new kinds of schooling fish for me to try out but sometimes they look too small and I my angelfish will end up getting lots of protein. He then backs off when he agrees or shows me something else that would be compatible.

Some of their stuff can be pricey and others cheaper than anywhere else. The 75g I bought was cheaper than any place I looked at within 60 miles of my home.

This place is half an hour drive for me but worth the drive. Plus they are only a few miles from my parents house so I can visit 2 places in one trip.
