My favorite is Neptune's in San Jose. Owners are members of my club. They have a lot of salt, but they also have great Nano fish and plants...its non chain, owners are super nice.
Albany Aquarium has a lot of plants, plus they QT fish. It raises prices, but fish are typically very healthy. Non chain, long time store.
San Francisco has AquaForest of course.
Plus there is the SFAS club
My club is SFBAAPS
San Francisco Bay Area Aquatic Plant Society. We are into planted tanks but our members also do SW
, Ponds, etc....
