    So is the fish tank going to have bass, catfish and bluegills? Or, have Alaskan fish. Man that is what I want to know.

    I like both stores to wander in, but my only question will be..

    what does the Alaskan mark-up equate to?

    The only thing that is for sure it there will be some places going out business..... Mountain view sports won't be able mark everything up sky high anymore.
    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

    No kidding! I shop there every so often because I live in the area. Prices are definitely inflated.
