Wow you are really close to me since I live in Covington. There's no too many people on here from Louisiana. Are there many good lfs in Baton Rouge including this one. I normally go to Metairie or Kenner to get what I need and would like to find some other places in the area.
I also buy all of my fish at Petland now. Dane is very knowledgeable on fish and plants. And if he does not have an item, he will do his best to get it. Also, I have had a lot of good luck buying fish there.
went to petland yesterday just to browse....they had a great selection of freshwater fish, but no one on staff was knowledgeable enough to 'help' me. several people tried to tell me that a cyprichromis was actually a compressiceps. i was horrified when i saw how well some of their tanks were maintained....
i can honestly say i will never buy fish from them

I went to Petland in BR last weekend, and their tanks do look very bad. They were all covered in algae and there was not one single live plant in any of them. According to this thread they had live plants, but I see now that was in 2006. They definitely don't have any live plants now.
