Default New shop in Albuquerque

I was on the bus on Sunday, April 15 (2007), just after noon, heading west on Menaul. We were west of Carlisle, about half way to University, when on the south side of the street I glimpsed in a aseptic-looking strip mall (the one where there is a long-time computer shop, I think) [get to the point...] I saw what looked like a new aquarium shop.

I was so startled that I only got a glimpse of the name, something like Southwest Salt Reef with Corals. This sighting soaked in over the next minute: it looks like we have a second saltwater aquarium store in town.

The other one is on San Pedro, just south of Menaul, on the west side of the street, across the street from Coronado Mall. I went there once, was too early, it wasn't open yet, and I finally saw the sign on the door "FW is for [some uncomplimentary but not naughty term for unskilled folks]" and I realized it wasn't the place for *me*. Assuming then that the one on San Pedro hasn't moved, then SW lovers will have more choices here in Albuquerque. Since August 2006, 98% of my fish money has gone to Clark's on Lomas, if only because they are closer to me (I live downtown) and because the employ skilled clerks
