Sacramento Aquarists (Northern Cali)

Hellos from Sacramento Cali. I'm new to the Aquarium hobby, about 2 months new, and wanted to see if there are others from the Sacramento Area on here. I've been to most of the LFS in Sac: Capitol Aq., Exotic Aq, and O Street Aq. (They have the cleanest tanks I have seen anywhere). Can anyone suggest any others that I might not know of?

Thank.........

Hey, try AquaWorld in Carmichael - that is a pretty good store if you want to try somewhere different... Its on Madison Ave, I guess the intersection is Dewey Ave.

Thanks Bioworldmaker, I finally got to check that place out a couple times within the last month. Very nice clean tanks.

The only new ones here are Lee's and Aqua Life Both great stores. If you come at the right time you get to see them feed the sharks in the 1000 gallon shark/moray tank in AquaLife.
Lee's Feed and Western Store

www.leesfeed.com
Lees has the best prices around here for freshwater fish and most other stuff.

AquaWorld Aquarium
www.aquaworldaquarium.com
6630 Madison Ave. Suite A

Aquaworld has good stuff and tons of livebearers, discus, angels and other cichlids they breed themselves. also have lots of other good stuff. Tell them Ben Driscoll sent you (young kid who asks too many ?'s).

Exotic Aquarium

Sacramento, CA 95823
www.exotic-aquarium.comExotic's stuff is great, It is the only place to find a lot of the oddballs, as well as great prices.

AquaLife Aquarium

www.aqualifeaquarium.com/
AquaLife has a ton of corals, and is where i get my SW inverts, they have all sorts. Plus i get 20% off cuz of my aquarium society.

Capitol Aquarium
1920 29th Street
Sacramento, CA 95816

This Place is HUGE! They even have fields trips to this place. It is about half the size of a PETCO and all fish.

"O" Street Aquarium

http://ostreetaquarium.com/This is rather small, but they have great fish and they are as healthy as possible. The advice is great too.

you knwo i bought 4 fish from exotic, and 1 died, got him replaced, and he died, then another died.... my water was good. they wouldnt eat, and went belly up. but the fish from captiol are always in excellent condition!! and petco in elk grove pissed me off, selling me purple waffle, then i saw exotic had purple waffle for sale to!!!! so i definatly dont shop at those stores antymore!!! capitol is my favorite.

Thanks thetmaxx, and I agree about Exotics fish aren't always the best of health. I did buy my baby silver Arowana and Australian and few other fish that ended up surviving. My Favorite is O-Street, walking distance from Capitol, their tanks are super clean and fish always look health. Only problem I had with them is I got a Green Texas that developed a mouth disorder and I ended up putting the fish to sleep.
