Went today, they are still setting up, went with my ex neighbor, had a blast. we were there for like 3 maybe 4 hours. and they only had about a dozen tanks set up. Only took two pics, one basically looks like the one off there web site. (125 with (im not a salt guy) corals and frags? wish i took more, will next time.
Walk in the door theres a 650 gallon stock tank for sharks. Almost set up. , had to use wife for size. we talked about stock tanks right there for about 45 minutes to an hour. lol, then to your left is a 300 gallon freshwater tank setup thats cycling, for an 18 inch black arro, a stingray, and a giant lima shovelnose, and i think peacock bass. ( i could be wrong on the type of shovelnose). Im wicked jealous on that tank, i know wife was impressed as ive been harping on getting a bigger tank and i dont think she realized how much bigger a 300 was. And she was amazed and talked about it on the ride home.
They had a green slug of some sort my wife fell in love with, never seen one of them, not sure the technical name. Got a tour of the building, where his freshwater room will be, the freshwater plant section, (which is big to me, cant find plants anywhere) where the shark filters are going. Again had a blast. Has huge potention, Wicked friendly people there. And my neighbor bought a tang and when we got in the car he was "man, they really ask alot of questions" good in both our eyes. But cant wait till they get there freshwater section going. We go to alot of pet shops together and thats the first time i saw him buy a fish that wasnt food for another fish. He was saying he was tossed on a fish or a frag. I liked the eel but he wouldnt get it Even though im not a salt guy , cant wait to go again. Was feeling guilty we took up so much time till a few peeps walked in and they took him for about 30, we lasted longer. Sump tanks all exposed, i like that. Ill be watching and visiting this place alot. I know my ex neighbor will. its closer to him.

We finally got a chance to check out Easy Aquariums. Very nice store, and closer to us than most others. They need a couple of signs out to let people know where they are though. We'll probably be purchasing our t-5 replacement bulbs and salt there in the near future. Their prices look comparable to a little less than Petco and they offer customer service for drilling tanks, maintance, etc.

It sounds like they'll probably be having their own thread on Maine Frag Swap, a local Maine forum.
