I like Sea Escapes in south elgin. The improvements he has made in the last year make it one of the best for coral in Chicagoland.

Beyond the Reef in Schaumburg is good too, but smaller.

Both are pricey but worth the trip.

That one is ok. It is a nice shop but I always find his stock to be a bit sparse. Both of the ones I mentioned are definitely a good step above that shop IMO.
