Anything (or anyone) near the Monterey/Santa Cruz area?

I've been struggling to find any decent fish stores with even a decent plant selection or fish selection.

Anyone know of any in the area? I'd prefer not to have to go to SF for this stuff

Otherwise I guess I'll have to turn to the SnS on this site.

Thanks for the thought Jonny. Another member also mentioned Neptune Aquatics. Milpitas isn't close but if I combine my plant/fauna needs I can manage a trip out there.

I'm just used to having a solid LFS when I lived in So Cal. Santa Cruz just isn't big enough.

I am afraid you will have to just bite the bullet and make the trip north. There are several stores in the San Jose area, and a bit farther north into Albany (Albany Aquarium) or SF (Several stores).

Make a day of it!

Yup! I'll have to consolidate all my aquarium needs into infrequent trips. Gone are the days where I can forget things and conveniently trot over to the LFS lol. At least for now :P
