I think everyone has a nightmare story! A place i visited last week was AWFUL!!! Dead fish on the floor, filthy tanks, dead fish in the tanks, and half the tanks had handwritten signs in red with the words 'SICK' on them.....

Well, here is one of my stories.

I go into a new fish store. After asking the employee some questions (which he answered poorly) he said, "I don't know, you probably know these better than I do." I then was sold a Clown that introduced icy into my tank. QT from now on, lesson learned.

I love the fish place in fort worth
There is a place that has already been named in this thread that I had a VERY bad experience at. And I have advised everyone I know to not go there!!

I have to say that the fact that they put signs on the tanks means that they were not going to try to sell you sick fish. Unlike SOME lfs...

I want to see that it is eating and want to see that it`s healthy and does not have parasites. There is nothing wrong with buying online and many people do it but I just want to view what I`m going to get. Hopefully you can find an LFS you can trust.
I also believe in help keeping my locals employed, but to each their own. 

I believe in buying local ad much as possible. But when buying local means buying from unethical, unhelpful, predatory merchants, then the open marketplace must prevail and the better competitor will get my business. Sadly for me and many people, it is not feasible to spend $50-$80 to travel 150 miles in order to "buy locally. "
