      Which LFS to buy fish... ?

      Im Nuvo 10 is finally cycled. Setting up a QT tank today.
      Want to buy a few fish.

      Any opinions or input on LFS with good healthy fish?
      If not I'll likely just order from Live Aquaria. But I'd rather stay local if I can.

      I'm guessing it will only take a few days to fishless cycle the quarantine tank, so, assuming that holds true; I'd like to have fish by a week from Monday latest.

      Thanks..

      I like getting my fish from Vets Pets if I'm looking for something specific. If Chris doesn't have it he can more then likely get if for you. I have bought fish from Aquatic Warehouseand Pet Kingdom and have been happy with everything I have ever gotten.

      Get them from "D-man" & or "GCristobal. They keep several in quarantine ready to "re-reef". I have never had any disease nor death from their livestock.

      All the LFS around here are great! I think Aquatic Warehouse has the largest selection (as far as fish go). Wherever you go, just make sure to ask them to feed the fish before you purchase. If they are eating, majority of the time you should be fine.

      this is your best advice. Chris doesn’t even really mess with corals anymore like in the past. Most of his business is fish and he is very good

      Was planning to send you a PM tomorrow. Went down to vets pets today but there wasn’t much there. I’ll PM you to see what you might have. Gotta a few days, just started a fishless cycle on a quarantine tank this afternoon. My guess is it’ll be the end of the week earliest before it cycles. The other problem is I’m not completely sure what I want. It’s only 10 gallons so can’t put much in there anyway.
