I stopped by Coral Reef today for the first time. I was very impressed. They do have some plants. I scored 2, 6x6 mats of hair grass for a good price. They had blue rams which I dont see very often. Customer service was exelent! Answered lots of questions and even though they had been closed 15 minutes after I got there they didnt rush me out of the store and continued answering questions, and even offered to call someone when I asked what kind of frontosa was in their show tank even though I was only curious as to what it was and not interested in buying. They were more then willing to order me whatever I needed. Will be going here instead of the Ark for now on even thought they are 30 minutes away from my home rather then right down the street like the ark is.
