My experience in south bangalore - This is strictly my views on the different LFS, views may vary based on people. I am in no way related to any of the shops.
1 - Mermaid (jayanagar) - its kind of in basement so you need to search a lot to find (Use google maps - helps a lot)
Neat, Big one but when I visited there was 2 people both had very less knowledge on fishes, But saw some very good collection of plants and marine stuffs. Freshwater collection was less. (No exotic & even common varieties). Had some good Tanks and hardwares though.
2 - Matsyavatar - its in elephant rock road (near to the park) - good plant collection but most of the plants are not for sale, there used to be a guy and lady, guy is quiet knowledgeable. Has common fishes and some good marine stuffs. I bought a canister filter here.
3 - Cavery - Its in Jayanagar shopping complex, lots of advertisement in net, but when you visit its a one room local shop with some mollies. Just the another small shop - I won t recommend much.
4 - Gulmarg (I tried the koramangala branch) - collections vary based on day - Friday to Sunday seen some good ones rest of the days just the common varities. Some days this shop has some interesting fishes, recently saw some interesting catfishes (Guys in the shop was not aware of the actual name) - negative point in this shop is the price, mostly based on individual, but its your negotiation skill to get the right price. Hardware collection is Ok, you can get low priced filters and stuffs.
