San Francisco in the Inner Richmond district. A block from 6th Avenue Aquarium and 9 blocks from Nippon fish store. Fairy Lake Discus might be nearby as well but I have not ventured therein.

Rocklin, about 30 mins. out of Sacramento. (waving to the other Sac area folks) My husband and I have a 20-gallon with 2 goldies and a 10-gallon FW--I'm prowling these forums because we're setting up a 75-gal SW tank right now--as soon as I refi the house to pay for it! Well, it's not quite that bad, but our friends all seem to think we're pretty much nuts so I enjoy the encouragement here as well as the advice!

ETA: Hey, I just got a fish and went from "newbie" to "apprentice"! Cool. I feel like I've arrived. :-)

I just moved to Davis, about 15 minutes from Sacramento. I lived in Santa Barbara for the past four years while i went to school. Right now I have a 5gal, 6gal, 10gal, and am setting up a 30gal tank. I probably would have more if I had the money and space. But wouldnt we all.

I live in Santa Barbara, CA. I am 16 and just started out with a saltwater tank (never kept fish before). Marine aquariums fascinate me. It seems like it is 10 times harder/expensive to keep a saltwater tank rather than a freshwater. I am not saying that it's impossible but freshwater seem so much easier. I am so worried about making a fatal mistake that can kill everything I have so I am very cautious and research things before I make a move.

Good to be around fellow Californians.

Oh man, there are tons. These places are great:

Aquarium City 818-887-7369 (Sherman Oaks)
Mark's Tropical Fish 818-762-7700 (Studio City)
Underwater Depot 818-789-7323 (sherman oaks)
Aquarium Center 818-501-3544 (Canoga Park)

I would suggest avoiding the Petco's inthe valley when it comes to livestock since so many of the tanks have ick.
