been to Tong's a million times. For pricey beautiful stuff they are great. Nice frags for $5-$15 as well. I spend $100 there a mo.. But would not but their LR for nothing. Can't beat LR.COM hands down.!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys,

I know Tongs very well, i live 2 blocks from them. I went there before I new anything, and they got me good.(sold me a skimmer that is worthless and canister filter)

I got most of my lr from Strictly Fish in Lakewood

You guys have any other good fish stores around maybe where you live(near by),im looking for a place that has a couple Onyx Clowns.

Yes thats the one,They have two big sales a year. Everything in the store(live 30% everything else 40% or more) So I got my LR for $3.50.

Do you know this store?

So far it is one of the better stores I have found.

Do you know of any better(as far as live stock selection and overall health of live stock) I am willing to drive to check them out.

I am thinking of buying my first fish from a place called Vivid Aquariums in Canoga Park(2 Onyx clowns),that is the only place I can find them.

Thanks,
Ryan

Thanks again all,

Kaz, I haven't been to Vivid Aquariums yet... But I think it is salt only?Plus have you been to all of those stores you posted,if so any favorites?

And got bait, What is the actual web site you are trying to state? There is no LR.COM

There is a site that gives you links to places like marinedepot.com and such?
Also got bait,

What Tong's are you talking about?( the one you spend $100 a month)

The reason I ask is because I believe there is more than one.Are you talking about the one in Whittier?

Thanks,
Ryan
