Anybody in Arizona?

Hello All-

First this site and it's advice has been invaluable to setting up my 40ga tank.

I'm new to saltwater and new to Arizona and am looking for a credible LFS. Any information would be nice.

Thanks

Where abouts in Arizona do you live? I'm in the Gilbert area.

Where do you buy your supplies/livestock etc..? The only decent place I know of is in Phoenix..the Ocean Floor. Other than that, Petco on Val Vista is about the only other choice.

I would assume then that you have not tried Aquarium Arts on Baseline 1/2 mile west of Alma School?

Ive been to ocean arts and their livestock didn't seem all that appealing

I have heard of them, but have never been there. I will check them out. I have been ordering a lot of my stuff online, and have been happy with it, but it is the shipping that kills me on livestock. Thanks

Mike

I'm still somewhat new in the saltwater side of things (I live in Scottsdale, BTW), but so far my favorite places for SW fish are Ocean Floor and Aquatouch (near 32nd Street and Cactus).

I finally made it over to the Ocean Floor, which is a great place. I wish it was closer to home though. I live in Gilbert, so it is quite a haul. I will check out Aquarium Arts on Baseline this week and report back to let you know how it was.

Once you go salt, you won't go back to fresh.
Mike

the ocean floor is a good place, but the sale people sometimes forget that your there to buy fish not to build there 401k's, any who there is another fish place one thunderbird and 32nd street, that is the cleanest lfs i have ever seen in my life, they seem smart also just like the people on AA good luck

I'm actually doing both fresh and salt now. I built a HUGE new stand, that holds two 90 gallons side by side, and two 25's below. The right side is fresh, the left is FOWLR. I've got some parrots in the other 90 that I've had for a long time. If they ever die, I'll probably convert that one to SW too, assuming I get good at it.
