That's annoying. I hate asking for prices. Definitely an "LFS pet peave" of mine.

Store is great and the staff are all very friendly and don't rush you. I never knew about the Facebook page - thanks, that'll come in useful for me.

Only slight negative for me was that other than Larry, the other staff also seemed unclear on price and referred to him for most questions.

Larry seems to be the go to guy, all very nice and they don't rush you at all

I hate asking for prices because I always pick expensive crap

I was glad when Ralph hired Larry, I use to go to another shop Larry worked at in PA. To bad that guy in PA didn't let Larry do his thing over there.

I was at the store today. Staff was very friendly, and yes no prices displayed. But the most amazing collection of fish I have ever seen in one location. A gem tang, two doctor seuss fish, a clarion angel, several pairs of fish including sunburst anthias, goby and shrimp pairs. Store is pretty amazing and worth the visit.

None of the aqua studio stores write prices on the tanks, I suspect it has to do with keeping the clean and minimalistic modern look to the store. Maybe we can make some suggestions other than scribbling all over the tanks with a wax marker?

The mounted iPad idea would work perfectly for them.
