They had a 1,000 gallon tank in there last time I went. The petting pool is awesome though, definitely check it out

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Last time I grabbed something from the discount room it was a coralife calcium reactor 500 model it was @ $50 after 65% off, I know their reviews aren't great bu for $50 bucks I thought I give it a try

I went to TFP about a month ago and wasn't that impressed with their sw fish selection. Maybe I went on a bad day but they didn't have much. Coral prices were kinda high too. We have a place down here near me called Pacific East Aquaculture. By far the best coral place I have ever seen in my life. If anybody is within a few hour drive should definitley check it out. They also have an awesome website but I tend to spend at least a couple hours there every other Saturday morning!

I like pacificeast but all their sps corals are kept in low nutrient tanks. They tend to be pale and I've never been able to keep them alive when I get them. I was just there last weekend and they must have had an issue as their corals weren't looking as good as usual. But I do agree it is a fantastic store and their prices are very fair compared to tfp

Went with my husband to that fish place today. It was pretty neat, only took about an hour and a half to get there, did not get any livestock though . I didnt wanna transport fish and the corals were all on the small side and expensive. Was really disappointed. But they do have a very cool facility, stuff for the kids to do like the live stingrays you can touch.
They had a decent selection of fish, alot of tangs and damsels from what I could see.
I did pick up some dry goods though, got a filter sock mount for the 60g for like $20 instead of thr $40 I had been seeing elsewhere. The back discount room was filled with skimmers but I am not actually actively looking for one so no go back there. lol

Sending you a pm MrX, see what you are up to for tomorrow

Here are some shots of the store, they had aisles and aisles of fish stuff. I didnt even know where to begin lol

I'm pretty new to the hobby so any good stores in eastern/ central PA with nice coral at decent prices would be great. Any reef clubs around?

I like to hit the pet shack on rt 309, really nice mom and pop place where the whole family is involved, also farther north in Scranton there's a shop I went to before they opened to buy a used skimmer, they didn't have any livestock in yet but each side of the store was lined with tanks and in the middle they were setting up an island of 3-4 60 gallon shallow reef tanks, I may have to go back soon just to check on progress
