So I'm having a bit of an issue here. I'm trying to purchase some freshwater fish and shrimps but it seems to be more difficult than I thought. My LFS is a disaster, Pet Shop Plus, all the other surrounding places are also terrible. I've googled and researched and found that a lot of people sing high praises of Pacific Aquariums and Plants Inc in the Lower East Side but after snooping around I found several fish had ich and the staff appeared very nonchalant about it.
A member of our community recommend Rachel O'leary but the communication takes forever back to back and I'm getting a little impatient. Waiting 2 weeks for a response is a little too long, it may be my NYC patience that probably has me going bonkers. Anyways, can anyone recommend their favorite shopping locations whether it be an actual store, person or website. I don't want to buy sick fish or give money to people who really don't care about the hobby and are just interested in profits which is what most of the pet stores I have visited seem to be. Thanks guys.
