I was quite impressed by this little place, once i walked in. From the outside, there isn't much to look at. It it located in the back of a shopping plaza, out by the dumpster. No kidding, it has no windows, no big signs out front. You could totally miss this place if you weren't looking for it. Or, maybe even if you were. lol. However, once you find the little hideaway, its a great experience. The shop size is small as one might expect. It is saltwater fare only, and it has severe love of the hobby. Selection of fish and animals is comparable to other fish stores with a large saltwater section. But there are many more "high-end" corals here. They have a wonderful show tank full of LPS and SPS corals, happily teasing each customer that walks in. There is a good amount of hardgoods for sale, and hard to find items. They really know what they're doing, and service people's home aquariums as well. My biggest reason for enjoying the store, is how well setup the tanks are. Nothing low tech here. Lots of people I've talked to about the store, refer to it as the "Porche" of fish stores. I'm no sure i agree with that completely, but the hardware they use IS pretty sweet! Check it out!
