LFS's #1
Evening all, only a thought but as we all know there are good and and there a bad LFS's. Maybe we could start a thread so people can leave their opinions and experiences on the LFS's they visit.

This way anyone visiting the site, whether they are new to fishkeeping or experienced can see the best places who give the best and most honest advice.

What do poeple think ??

Cheers

Re: LFS's #3
Good idea, I'd reccomend "Interfish" in Ossett (nr wakefield), has a cracking collection of rare corals, inverts and marine fish as well as a good range of tropicals, its kinda like a day out at the sealife museum there!!!! lol

If anyone knows any other good shops in the Doncaster/Wakefield area let me know they are few and far between! (good one's anyway!)

Cool, the two i use are:

Coxwell Aquatics, Wyevale garden centre, A41, West Midlands, Excellent stock of healthy fish and accessories, reasonable prices and good advice.

Angloscottish, Codsall & Wergs Garden Centre, off A41, West Midlands. Smaller stock of fish, still healthy stock though, very good advice and very helpful. Got me out of a scrape or two when starting off.

Re: LFS's #6
Similar thread HERE might be some useful info in there for those who've not seen it before

Always good to hear recommended shops after the dodgy stories we seem to hear so frequently so tell us all about your favourite places

Re: LFS's #7
ive only been to highways garden centre once but their display was brilliant. they had loads of display tanks, the fish were all healthy and in clean tanks which wernt jam packed with fish. ad they had a fair amount of accesories.

Re: LFS's #8
maybe this [or the other link] should be in the recommended topics so it doesn't get lost down the line.

Don't know how that gets done .. any offers

cheers

Re: LFS's #9
Just so people are aware. There is a new LFS module coming and it will provide normal users the ability to add shops, with ratings and comments etc...

Its currently only available to certain users a I need to do quite a bit of debugging on it before its ready for proper usage.
