Angry getting screwed by LFS

every time i order a fish from the fish store say a medium huma huma he tells me today its no bigger than a half a dollar coin.i think the are ordering small and charging me for medium.they get there supplies from sunpet out of atlanta.i pick it up tomorrow and this is getting old.i live in the country and there isnt another store for 70 miles.so iam getting chared 26 bucks for a huma huma that is probably 2 inches long.does'nt that sound crazy?

whatever the collector sends them is what they have to offer. they really have to demand a certain size in order to get it.

Sounds to me like buying the smallest size might save you a little cash in the long run then. Or, you could always just order them yourself... saves the middle man and lets you deal directly with the person selling the fish.

that's what i'm complaining about.when he looked it up he said they only have medium and gave me the price and what the minimum and maximum size would be.today he tells me on the phone your fish is in but he sure is small,so i figure he would give me the price of a small one.

26 dollars is actually very very reasonable for a Huma-Huma. Online anywhere you go you will pay $60+ for a huma-huma, and thats including shipping.
