Remember ?

This thread may only interest those of us who have been in the hobby for many years.
or
It may not interest anyone @ all.

I'll begin with one of my memories.
Small aquarium stores. Before the age of the big box
where they knew your name when you walked in
the smell of the water.
Eyes glued to the glass like a kid in a candy store

I have quite a few fish stores like that in my general vicinity. 2 in my small town alone and at least 4 more in an hours drive...

I remember going to a dedicated aquarium/avian/reptile store about 18 years ago. Such a cool place.. the lfs I frequent is old school but the attitudes are a tad bitter (totally understandable). Big box stores are pretty obnoxious to me. The streamlined look of the tanks make it look to factory/production for me..
