I'm from Nassau, and I haven't been to the first two orion mentioned, but the third one is great. It looks sort of like a hole in the wall, but it's actually pretty big and I can't remember seeing a sick fish there. The owner is usually there and very knowledgeable. Godd FW
plants, too. I think it's called Tropical Showcase, but I'm not sure. It's windows are painted with a mural of tropical fish, and its on the North side of the road if anyone wants to check it out.
Another decent place is Pets Warehouse in Copaigue on Sunrise Highway. Their selection is huge, but seasonal. They haven't had as much as usual in recent cold months. They also have a good selection of FW
plants. They also sell some used equipment, for other cheapos like me. I got my hood for a 30L there for $10.
You can check out their website and see what they have, although I've personally never ordered online from them.
I've also been to a lot of other Nassau/Suffolk stores, so if anyone has any ?s feel free to ask.
