More so Public Aquariums, since I'm going with my girlfriend and her friends (they're all not that into fish), but would take suggestions for stores too, maybe I can get away if they want girl/shopping time.
If your into coral reefs, I believe Atlantis has one of the largest coral reef displays in the world, but if your staying in or close to Manhattan it's much easier to get to The NY Aquarium. Altantis also has Splish Splash very close by.
Thanks for the suggestions, I didn't get a chance to check out the aquarium, but did stop by Win for some Sakura Shrimp (labeled on the tank). Neat store with lots of fish. There was also a store a few doors down from Win that had some nice discus and flowerhorns.
Also went down to Baltimore and did stop at the National Aquarium there.
Not really impressed with the National Aquarium in Baltimore - this was my second time there. Wished I had time to check out NYC Aquarium. We spent a day in China Town shopping, night at Times Square; day at Central Park, then more shopping in SoHo and 5th Ave.
Win is pretty neat though, really digging the Sakura shrimp there, wish someone could ship me some!!
