There is an lfs that sells mainly saltwater fisn near my house and they are great. Each tank is at least 50 gallons. For the smaller or more territorial fish however,they are housed in smaller tanks but all the fish are healthy.

We have puppy mills here, so there are all kinds in the pet trade. But I was asked once if I go all "tang police" when in a LFS that's sub-par. You bet I do. If you embarrass easily, I'm not your shopping buddy. It comes from having been in the business and not liking those that take short cuts that hurt the merchandise.

If your keeping the fish for just a few weeks, then that's not too bad. They unfortunately get pretty cramped up during collection, shipping and holding, so giving them a break is a good idea and will result in you buying a less stressed fish.

Buying a healthy fish is up to you, and bashing a store on a forum will not help anything.

You can, i believe, complain about a store, just don't single it out or name it in any way. There should be a rating system somewhere for fish stores so you can share feedback.

yikes sorry everyone I didn't know this thread would be controversial I agree, we need some cohesive way of rating and sharing our Experiences with these fish stores. it can be so hard to weed through tons of different opinions.
