That doesnt make the LFS special, that's actually quite common. That, my friend, is the difference between a Local Fish Store, and a Local Pet Store. Generally, Pet stores are not the place to look for quality equipment and livestock, they sell inexpensive products and livestock that will sell quickly to people looking to dive into the hobby uninformed. The average LFS looks to do the same, only with expensive equipment and livestock.
This is why forum and internet research is so crucial to one's success in the hobby. Stores are in business to make money. Thats the bottom line.
