Well, it was a LFS in a manner of speaking :wink:

Actually, I have quite a few pet stores near me (like within 10 miles) that deal in fish too, but they are very poor fish stores. There are also...

In retrospect, Buck, I think that I agree with you. Labeling of plants should just be assumed. I know that when I order non-aquatic garden plants online (Burpee, Wayside Gardens, whomever...),...
