On the topic of being overpriced... I've been to a decent amount of what i consider to be *good* LFS in NJ including Aquaridise, Absolutely Fish (Clifton), Rt 4 Aquarium (Fair Lawn), Ely's (Florham Park), Shark Aquarium (Union) and they are all over priced. Reason is because profit margins are terrible in this business and they're not chains like Petco so they don't benefit from economies of scale. I feel terrible but it's hard for me to justify buying my equipment in the stores when it is so much cheaper online... That's why when I pay way more than I should for some great fish I just deal with it. I want them to be in business so I'm not reliant on Petco/PetSmart, and that's just how it is. I completely sympathize with them.
