Pleasantly suprised

    So I walked into a LFS I'd never been to before, expecting it to be like the rest. But to my suprise the place was fantastic!
    The guy i spoke to really did know alot about the fish he was selling and even refused to sell neon tetras with a fully grown angelfish to this person who came in :O
    Wouldn't sell fish that had been in the shop for less than 2 weeks either ^^
    And when I saw the Bettas....the males all had thier own tanks! The fish all looked happy and healthy, great colours and never seemed overstocked!

    Just wanted to share this because so many LFS's give us so much pain that going into this one really brightened my day :)

    That sure is a rare find. You're lucky to have access to a fish store owned by someone who cares more about fish than money. Congrats to the owner:animal0028:

    Hi Shadowbeam, can you remember the name of the fish store?
    My local fish store is a branch of Swallow Aquatics, it is fantastic in there :)

    I go to the East Harling branch as it is closest to me, so im not sure if the others are good but I assume they will be :)
