    I have a 10 inch Oscar. I want to trade it in at the LFS for store credit. How much do you think the LFS can sell it for?

    not much I would think, they tend to be pretty tight about that. I saw an Oscar that size @ my LFS and it was selling for 9.99, so I would think not much. However, each store is different and you might be able to get more credit for him. GL

    yeah my LFS rarley buys large oscars and when they do get one they usually dont pay anything for them, plus they dont keep the small ones in stock because they will just end up geting them back when they out grow the owners tank anyway.

    Most Oscars that I see at LFS shops are pretty beaten up. On average at my LFS the give 5-10 n store credit and sale them for $20 but are to say.
