Wow, I forgot all about this Thread..... Well, So Far in my Journey I have visited a few LFS, The Living Sea Which are way over priced on everything, but they are in a rich area so people will pay that don't know no better. Old Town is just Ridiculous in everything they sell even Fish, Ocean Design is ok there store is a Littele Sloppy even though I did buy most of my fish from there... I have been in Advance Aquatic which is a Real Nice store They have a Massive Frag Tank actually a few massive Frags tanks., Also Tropic Aquatics which have a real good selecetion of fish and dry goods.... But other than that I have find a few chicago buddys on RC and a lot of them did not even know about AA.... I told some to cme and join but a lot like to stick with just one.:p

There is one in deerfield too, I forgot the name but its huge. um aquarium adventures in hoffman estates at golf and roselle rd just off 90.

sea escapes in south elgin. beyond the reef in schaumburg.


I found quite a few in chicago proper last night but im not on the same comp I saved the links on.

Im just trying to find a nice FW store anywhere in the chicagoland area that has a good selection if not great of non common fish. different varieties different strains you know.
