Blue Ribbon Kio is first a Koi pond place. They specialize in koi ponds and the landscaping to go with them, however since the owners son John has taken over the store he has added the Marine side of the store. They have enough parking to accomidate 25 or so cars. It is a hole in the wall place so it's not right next to other buildings or anything.

On the website the large tank that has all the corals and clams in it is where most of the coral frags are. He also has a large setup in the back of the store that holds his prop tanks and some other frags.....It isn't a large store but the quality and price of his stuff is great!! The Marine Scene in Herndon does ONLY SW and is much much larger in terms of amount of live stock but the quality isn't any better then at Blue Ribbon Koi.

Wow, Mike, you are coming from Richmond? Ok, the gereral consensus is to meet at the store. What time? I believe Lindsay said areound 12, that will give us out of town folks plenty of time to get there. Once we all meet, we can shop and maybe do lunch. So, should we say 12? I agree, we should exchange numbers, but I wouldn't recommend it in the public view. Everyone PM me with your email and phone numbers and I'll foreward them on to everyone interested....sound good?

Sounds great Scott! I said around 12 would be good for me, but I'm flexible too, if that isn't a good time. I would just ideally like to be back home before 6 ish, because I have a 21st birthday to go out and celebrate with my sister-in-law.

I'm down for store and lunch too, I'll PM my number now.

Well, it's confirmed, I won't be joining you guys after all.
My husband has informed me he has a thing he's got planned that day that I wouldn't dare ask him to miss. (long story short, he's going to be hanging out with one of the guys off the show the Sopranos) so maybe some other time. Have fun!
