Very nice. Reminds me somewhat of my LFS, but I think yours must have more floor space.

House Of Fins. We had a falling out a while back but have since resolved issues. So with our new lease on our friendship I went to see them yesterday. Life's too short...

Anyway, Greenwich CT. House Of Fins

Very cool, I'm a bit jealous. There's a few stores in my area but none of them compare to that.

That's like a fish Walmart compared to my lfs. Like seriously those pics blew my mind. You are very lucky to have a lfs with such care and expertise. I don't see how they even make money with all that. It's like a piece of ocean.

Yea it's crazy! I didn't even get the freshwater side. Well not sure if you read the beginning but that's where the falling out came from they wanted 386.99 for the marine land double brights 48" and online it's 180.00

They mark up everything and it got heated. But I guess that's how they stay afloat.
