I might be moving to CT in the spring. The brooklyn area, near killingly, pomfret. I might continue to make the trip to my current LFS. Any in CT that'd be worth checking out?

Exotic fish and corals in milford has really nice saltwater selection. Two huge frag tanks and four 90 gal tanls with really large pieces. Lots of rare fish and your everyday stuff. Bob is a great guy and will give you great deals if you talk to him

Waterbury Aquarium (Waterbury, CT).... owned by Chris, a really nice guy and very knowledgeable fishkeeper.

I purchase a lot of my stock from him and have gotten most of my tanks, both new and used, from him.

I've had a mixed experience there to be honest. It's only 5 mins from my house, but about 50% of the time, whoever's there is brusque and not all that helpful. The other times, they're great, so I don't know if they're busy or what, but I rarely see other people in there. It's also kind of a dump still, after they're move, but is getting better as they work on it.

*However* they do have a pretty good selection of fish, which I've found to be healthy, and a good collection of supplies and natural decor for tanks, so it just takes some getting used to and you have to know what you want.

Also, not too far from WA is Just Phish, which has a good and different selection of stock from WA in a nicer space. I know next to nothing about SW, but they seem to have good fish for that, too.

For such a run-down town, Waterbury has some nice lfs's.
