My LFS second to none

    Just thought i'd tell you all about my LFS. I went in today on my way too work to see if my yellow tailed acei had arrived yet(no they hadn't, BOOO) and was looking at their stock as i always do. Well i over heard some lad talking to his freind about an albino cat fish he saw and was going to buy. Curious, i shuffled over to have a look, as i love catfish and was dumbfounded to see an albino pangasius. This lad called over the assisstant(Mike)to say he wanted to buy it. Mike asked him what sized tank he had because this fish gets huge. The reply was "nearly 3 foot mate"(125 litres). Mike apoligised to the lad and said he would not sell the fish to him knowing it would out grow the tank very quickly and he would have to either sell it on or give it to some one with the means to look after it properly. Well this lad kicked off big time and called mike all the names under the sun,:;b at this point i escorted the lad and his mate out of the shop.
    Hail to mike and fishy business for looking out for the welfare of the fish and ALWAYS giving the correct info.:;toast
    Just thought i'd share this with you guys.

    That great gunner13! I moved your thread into the review section of the forum.
    Would you care to share the name so others in your area might benefit?

    That's wonderful, Nick! Thanks for sharing!

    I got a visual of the "escorted the lad and his mate out of the shop" and got the giggles.
