I have never had a problem with the London store everyone there was really good at answering my questions and showing me what I needed. The petsmart store near big al's have employees that know nothing at all about fish and are very rude

petsmarts by me are decent, they know their stuff as well as are very open to learning and teaching.

Big Al's I am dealing with a return on broken merchandise, ill let you know after this is over.

Big Al's at my end pretty much sucks...
Customer service is near a 0, they give terrible advice (Except for one guy that has been there for ever), and you really have to watch the livestock you buy. (That's why a QT for new fish is a Must!).
On the positive side, their prices are great, lots of choices of hardware, foods & Fish...
It's one of those... You really wish you didn't have to go there, but they are the only real aquarium specialty store around... (Other than big box stores, which I refuse to buy from)...

I usually find that Drs Foster & Smith has a better deal, because it's $5.99 flat shipping per order, on top of cheaper prices in many cases. I bought 3 200g boxes of salt and paid only that for shipping.

I dont use dr f and S any more. They take too long to get orders out. Aquacave. has cheaper shipping and I get orders in about 2 or 3 days. I could wait a week or more from fosters. Also aquacave is a site sponsor. Also they are cheaper than fosters on most products. As far as staff at all lfs, if they knew anything they would work at sea world. I go in expecting them to be stupid then if they know something I can be surprised.
