Out of all the wholesale warehouses I've been to in LA, Sea Dwelling Creatures, IMO, is the best wholesale source of marine animals for the aquarium...even so much as having a veterinarian on site to care for their livestock. That's almost unheard of in the aquarium trade.

I use to get to go there, even before they moved to their present location almost weekly for a year to get fish and other marine stock. We now have our own warehouse, but not much in selling wholesale as it is to hold our fish before they come into the store. We buy direct from collectors (the same sources SDC get their fish). It's planned to be ground zero for online fish orders once that part of our retail business is ready. Still, I like SDC. Great people who work there and they really care about their livestock. Many wholesalers do not put that kind of effort for the comfort of their livestock and that can mean the difference between livestock that survive and those that end up dying along transport to their retail stores.
