Flashback from my younger days - the old MASSIVE Aquarium Center off Liberty road

Remember how that place used to be? Got my first tank there when I was 16 (45 tall, wish I could find the pics) - you could wander in there for HOURS, always full of people, tank after tank, first reef display tank I ever saw, they even had a blue ring octopus on display back then.

Would just wander around drooling over sumps and reefs, never did do saltwater.

Weird how far planted tanks have come, That's what I wanted back then but there was nothing like we have today easily available - even this huge store had just a few little plants (banana plants, anacharis, that sort of thing)

Not sure I want to ever go by there again, would be depressing to see if it has fallen frmo grace.

I think I tried to go there and they had closed down. I wish there were more good stores near here.

Yeah just remember the good ol' days. It got increasingly worse over the years and the last time I was in there it was about 1/4 the size it used to be (and that's being generous) and the selection was nothing special. I remember seeing an ad on craigs list for the main reef tank they had in there before they downgraded, it is a shame because that is where I went to cut my teeth as well and used to spend hours on end in there just like you.
Well that's just like.........your opinion man.
