Default Help plan my vacation please

Hello Californios,

I've just gotten married and the honeymoon is a nice long road trip with stops in Vegas (several days), San Diego (1-2 days), Los Angeles (several days), San Francisco (1-3 days) and possibly Sacramento if the Fiancee finds anything she really wants to do/see there.

We've got a list about a mile long for non-fish activities but since we are both into fishkeeping we GOTTA stop at some of the nicer California LFS.

After perusing a few threads I've compiled a list (also about a mile long) of places but I don't know where is worth spending our somewhat limited shopping time.
I'd really appreciate opinions and advice on which shops are the cream of the crop.

And with no further ado, here is the list:
Los Angeles
Fumi's which is on W. Pico near Crenshaw Blvd
Neptune's Reef in Torrance
