it's a trade off, lfs you get to see the fish first hand. but online they are cheaper but doesn't always mean a better fish. whats said is some of the lfs work on comissions and are told to sale sale sale, or how's going in to petco's and petsmart "That fish is dead aha it's just laying on it's side sleeping, or oh im sorry we will get more on X date. the allen petco knows there stuff along with a few other petsmart. it sucks the planted seen is not big, or some of the plants are over priced. just up the road from me a lfs wants 8.99 for potted plants, and a small 3 leafed nana anubias for 15.99
