I cannot comprehend how a person who cannot accept sick fishes will pay for fishes that he canít even see clearly?
First - Will a reputable and honest LFS sell Scalare if you are buying Altum?
Second - Will a reputable & honest LFS sell you sick fish? or Do you think is ethical to sell sick fish?

I also can not comprehend how a reputable LFS will choose the sick fish for you. May be the person from the LFS can't even see fish clearly. May be to them selling sick is normal practice and buyer will be at fault if they don't open their eye big.
