I just got back from checking to see what my favorite LFS
(which only has 1 employee who is also the owner) had in stock for my future acquisitions and get some frozen food. She was VERY excited when I came in as she had some news!
Last week, Leng Sy, the President and CEO of Ecosystems and Coral Magazine, had come all the way to Maine specifically to visit her LFS
, as he had heard very good things from her wholesaler about the place.
He told her that she had one of the most beautiful stores he had seen in the US. He also autographed one of his pictures of his corals in one of her books (I forgot which one).
Her store is very well laid out with Breeder Tanks for stock and some beautiful 90G display tanks. She had designed the store to look like a den in someones house with knotty pine panelling. This store is the store that got me interested in Marine Tanks...before this store...The only SW
tanks I saw looked like a bunch of salt creeping mess. Her tanks are always immaculate.
She has only been in business since August of 2004, but has developed a large and faithful following.
If anyone is the the Portland, Maine area, I would recommend checking out this LFS
