Coral Reefs in Brampton (Canada) is the best...when my lionfish had lock jaw they came and got him and took him back to the store...over several weeks they massaged his jaw and forced feed him...the only problem is he grew 2inchs while in their care :P...

they also treat all their fish with copper and medications to kill any bacterias and hold them for 2months before selling...

i love my lfs ^^

I've been going to a great FS for several years now. The staff is very knowledgeable. they carry a wide variety of fish, both the most popular and a lot of unique fish. But if by some off chance they don't have what I want they will always order it for me at no extra charge.
They also know that I am on a fixed income and that money has gotten tighter in the last couple of years, so I have a line of credit with them. If I need medications or if a heater dies a few days before payday I can still get whatever my fish need.
They are a great place to buy fish. Their stock is always strong and healthy. They take back any fish that doesn't get along with what I already have. They even have an email system set up so that you can communicate with any of their specialist, be it for fish or dogs and cats or even something a little exotic like a Patagonian Cavat, they do it all.
They also help the local ASPCA with adoptions, by keeping some of the ASPCA animals there at the shop at no charge to the ASPCA.
So yes, I have found a great FS.
The pic. is the Patagonian Cavat, a very sweet, cuddly animal, that even purrs when it's content.

My local lfs quaretines their livestock. All their tanks are independently filtered too, and their employees are all tank owners. Once saw one of them refuse to sell a pleco to with a 29 tank.
