I'm sorry to hear about your experience with the lfs. I wouldn't rule the store out completely because of one bad experience. This just means you would have to keep a closer eye on the fish at purchase as you were saying. Some times things don't work out. It's certainly been the case for me at times. I still go back to look for that one great fish or fishes. Maybe the store had a water problem before purchase. Test they're water maybe .

Lol. Maybe I will. It'd look great if a waltzed in there, test kit in hand. Perfect store water was another excuse that she used to explain my fish deaths. Lol. Anyways... It happens. I'm not mad the fish died. Just at the way I was treated.

I have a favorite too. They have had some pretty sick fish lately and they are struggling to stop the spread so I'm avoiding them for a few months for fish purchases.
