local reef boards in my area always have the latest LFS gossip... I'm sure you have -at least- one local message board if you're in cali.

My LFS just up and closed one week too, right after I started one of my tanks. They just sold all of there stuff to a store in another city. Now the best fish store in my town is Petco, and it is a really bad even for a Petco. I have to drive 45 minutes to go to a decent fish store, and about 90 minutes to go to a good fish store. I hate Kansas :angry: Dorthy and toto were dumb for wanting to come back.

That sucks. If mine closes I will have to drive atleast 2 1/2 hours to the nearest LFS. My LFS seems to be doing pretty well, so I don't think I will have anything to worry about anytime soon.

I'm not gonna say a d*mn thing about zoa prices. I got severely flamed on another thread for voicing my opinion of the matter.

glen...theres a difference between wholesale zoos your LFS gets and the ones sold on NR by people like er1c, biblesue, propagator, mvite, and others.

 

LOTS more color, and each generation the price lowers...(or it should IMO)

They spend a big chunk of $ out of their pocket for some cool stuff just to spread the love!

Go to liveaquaria.com, most of their livestock is pretty reasonable. Better yet, find someone in your area who is willing to share shipping costs with you.

Are we talking about the same thing, www.liveaquaria.com?? The prices on their website are the same for everyone.

Sad to say but big box stores and large online business are putting a lot of LFS out of business. I was in FL last week and had a list of stores to visit, well 3 out of 4 closed shop in just one year.
