In my days in this hobby I have only found two local pet stores that know a lot...
Which is sad because I grew up in a city of 250k+ people, which if you can guesstimate how many LFS we had it was unreal.
First one was owned by a marine biologist. But he shut down a few years back to move to florida.
The second one is where I go now.
The other stores here know the basics but wont stop you mix two kinds together that don't go... or anything along those lines. They also don't know which fish is what....
I know my danio's really well, so I spot check the employees to see how much they know. sad but only the current LFS owner, not his employees, but the owner knows his stuff.
Anywhoo send em back and get something else lol
