Right or wrong that is where we are now.
    Well, since I don't trust shopping online, I would continue using brick and mortar LFSs, as long as the ones in my area continue to be as good as they have been. My only real beef is that they're understaffed when it really gets busy, and I have to wait a loooong time for service. They need to put more people in there. The upside is that most of them know me pretty well by now, and know what I expect from them. There are three such stores that I use. If I can't find what I need at one, I can try the other two until I find it. Usually, one or more will have what I'm looking for.

    I bought my seven Crimson Spot Rainbow fishes from the same store. I've had very good results with them. One died immediately after I acclimated it into the tank, but the other six have been thriving ever since. The next time I went into that store, one of the regular staff asked me how my Rainbows were doing. I think it's to their credit that the remaining six started out as healthy as they did, and are still hearty and growing.

    They will order things for me if I ask them to, and they'll keep me informed as to when to expect delivery.

    All in all, not bad ...

    Bet those Crimson Spot Rainbows are quite pretty in your tank.

    I have one LFS like that as well. We are fortunate. Many no longer do. Remember when most small towns had a locally owned pet store.?
