the only thing I can think of is Route 4 Aquarium. But That's not in Paramus, or near Garden State. Did I get to NJ late or something?

That was quite a bit longer that 10 years ago.... I would go so far as to say maybe 25 years ago maybe.

If memory serves me correctly, the place was called "Aquarius". It was on the stretch of Route 4 West between the enterance for the Garden State Parkway and the exit for Paramus Road.

That was a crazy place.

I go to a fish store every weekend for the past month, I live in the area.

Reef Encounter - I was not impressed, very dark/small and dirty tanks. I saw a handful of dead fish in there....

Fishtown - Great for plants, and some "special" specimens and shrimp (I go to this place for shrimp)

and some place in Clifton on Rt 46

Scotch Plains area has a good one according to one of my mates.


Cheers,
Rum
