About two weeks for me if I feel it's necessary, though there are only 3 fish shops on my little island and I trust them all absolutely so I never normally bother.

The closest to home is run by an absolutely stand up guy, who hasn't charged me full price for anything for so long as I can remember.

Another is run by really SERIOUS bloke who takes the ferry and then drives up to the stocker to hand pick every single fish he sells.

And of my mates works at the third, so I'm always given the heads up about anything fishy.

Me too, same as you! My favorite LFS is the bomb. My guy there QT's for three weeks and as far as his special favorite species goes? He keeps them off the central filtration grid.

Sooo many LFS' end up being a dissapointment. Isn't it great finding the one you can trust?
