welllllllll after doing my research on this wonderful fish i guess its out of the question now :-( lolol not only do they get up to like 8' but this i thought was odd
"The Queensland Groper has been implicated in fatal attacks on humans"

http://www.amonline.net.au/fishes/fi...anceolatus.htm

what a shame cause its the best looking grouper ive seen but they are not cheap the cheapest i found was $100 which imo was worth it but not for one that gets that big hehehe or that could kill me cause id need a tank/pond for it then of course id have to snorkel with it and everyone would read in the paper

" man missing after snorkeling in his pond!! doctors find him in belly of grouper lol "

I believe it is a local law, that all activities in Chicago must include the consumption of beer. Since I have been working there I have found out this includes lunch, dinner and even breakfast! I knew there was somehting that made me love this city.

DivemasterJim You probably saw me....I was the guy lugging the 16 month old child trying to keep him from throwing handfulls of the sand they sell.

Man I skipped the free beer thing.....
I did however hook up some HUGE deals. You know those acrylic tanks that they have right in front that are the 12 gal nano with integrated skimmers and wet/dry plus top and light. Got one of those for $50.00! and also a 180 watt PC light with bulbs for $40.00. Sign up on the website and they mail you when events are going to happen and when they get new cool stuff in.

I really like that store....some of the stuff is expensive, but as LFS goes they are pretty nice and not to much BS.

If you make it out to the Tinley Park area there is a place called Aquatica that is really great. The guy that owns it is always there, and he helped set up Beyond the reef in Schamberg. He has a huge shark pond in the store with like 3 or 4 hammerheads. Prices are generally really good. I also know the guys at Chicago Aquarium by Orland Square pretty good. They sometimes get some good stuff and with a little bargaining end up with decent prices.

You are right about Living Sea and Scotts....both fun to visit, but I keep my wallet in my pocket and laugh about the prices.

Next time there is a sale we should try and hook up and check it out. My store is only about a mile or so from there.
