This is a great site, they don't charge extra for weight.

I'll probably end up picking one up on ebay.
As much as I want to support my local fish store, there is no way I'm going to pay 2x what I can get it for online. Pretty much all hardware (unless it's an emergency) I get now days come from online. I was at a LFS the other day and they wanted $36 for a Stealth 100W heater. 8O

Yeah....the markup at the LFS is pretty steep.

For the most part, their livestock is generally spot on with online prices though.
My LFS 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. LOL

Yup, me too! I had to buy a 96W light, they charged me $60. I will continue to buy live stock from them. They will order what I ask for and I will wait at least a week, to make sure the fish is healthy.

yeah....feels kinda good saving about 60 bucks from the LFS. LOL

Only saved about 10-15 bucks from the link you posted earlier roka...but still. =)

I like to think I saved 60 bucks, cause I had it in hand Sunday...and was closing in on the checkout counter. :O
