I know nothing about saltwater, and this store is in Skokie, but they have kabillions of SW fish and inverts. I tour around and look at the salty stuff occasionally, and the stock always looks in great shape and they have a huge variety.

Old Orchard Aquarium Store in Chicagoland Area

i also know nothing about saltwater... just got into fish tanks and starting up a freshwater right now. I've recently visited a fish store called Old Town Aquarium. They have a great selection for both saltwater and freshwater tanks. They are located near my apt and I live in Lincoln Park. You should look them up... just do a quick google search to find their exact location.

Oh yes I live in bucktown i know exactly where that is at ...... Never been there but if you want free parking you have to buy $20 worth of stuff....lol I also know of another Ocean Design Aquarium also like OTA..... But i'm just looking for other places cause it seems as if those 2 places are the only ones in the city which suck.....

Old Town is just beautiful-like a jewelry store. Kinda spendy, but definitely worth visiting.

I've read very good reviews of Living Sea, but never been there.

My home town is in suburbs of chicago. I have been to the living seas. Their corals did not impress me much. They have all full colonies that are quite pricy and no frags. Not bad or anything just nothing special. Their fish were a different story. They were all very healthy and active. Very vivid colors and seemed to be well taken care of. A very good place to get your fish from. Either way a good place to take a trip out to. Nice store.
