Yeah....the markup at the LFS
is pretty steep.
For the most part, their livestock is generally spot on with online prices though.
however tends to have alot of dead fishes in their tanks. And they never seem to notice them. Unfortunately for me, I bought 2 clowns from mine, which ended up being riddled with Ich, and they are now in QT not doing so well. They didn't eat last night. Hoping they eat tonight, otherwise they are on the way out. =(
My buddy bought a Tang the same night that ended up with Black Ich. After a freshwater dip the Ich died, and so did the fish about 2 nights later.
Moral of the story is, don't buy fish from my LFS
