Local "good" stores
After going to a reef tank aquarium shop in Yonkers (Maximum Reef Aquatics - one which I did not know existed until about a week ago!) I realize that we really need a REAL aquarium shop. This place had such an incredible selection at such ridiculously low prices that I had to wait about an hour to be helped, AND they had over 10 people working the floor! Other vendors were there buying for inventory.
We really need a place that has a very big selection of healthy fish, plants and invertebrates. The places I have been to that people brag about when it comes to fresh water don't come close to the variety and quality of this store. AND IT IS MUCH HARDER AND MORE EXPENSIVE to maintain a large, healthy selection of salt water live stock!!!
