Try Something Fishy(www.toofishy.com), just SW fish and accesories, no big tanks(unless they order them for you) but they do carry small nano's and everything is priced GREAT! I got four $2.00 frags yesterday, thats right TWO DOLLARS!. I very wide selection of fish and corals.

I also go to American Aquarium & Pet Supply(http://www.americanaquariumandpetsupply.com/), this is a more full-sized type of pet store as they carry a lot of everything. Not was wide as a fish selection but everything is very healthy via their big UV system. There is a nice assortment of corals as well. Their dry goods are bit more exspensive but still not overpriced compared to Something Fishy. Considering they also carry FW, Pond, Dog, Cat, & small animals it is worth a look.

They also have a special where you pay $10 for a discount card good and at lots of places in the Lehigh Vallery area and you get a deal, Buy 2 fish/corals, get the third free for equal or lesser value.

I love Thatpetplace but it is a bit of a drive for me unless you intend on spending a lot of money.

Yesterday, I took my kids over to Aquatic Creations. We live in Frederick, so it was not too far to go. This is a great store. Super selection of tanks, and fish. The owner, Bill, took the time to show my kids a Moray Eel, and a Lionfish. He also took the time to talk to me about establishing a tank. This is my new fish store. Give them a look, before going to the big box store.

Yay for another Frederick-ian. heh.

I've never been to Aquatic Creations but have heard a lot of good stuff about it. My cousin just set up a 90 corner tank reef from there.
