I didn't think the prices where all that bad, as far as certain equiptment. Although I did see a starfish partially eaten by another habitant in the tank. Some of the fish were stressed and others didn't look so healthy. But on the other hand, I liked that I was greeted when I walked in and the sales team had no problem answering any questions, despite my lack of interest in purchasing anything at the time. (Which was expressed). and they still came back to ask if I had any others questions. I ended up purchasing a water test kit and a tank Magfloat, for giving me the time and their interest in helping me, no matter my intention of spending.
