I got a chance to go to Sea World Pet Center in Salem, NH! I felt like a kid in a candy store!
I could not believe that HUGE Pool for the Live Rock...and it looked great!
There were RemoraC and CPR Skimmers on the shelf...I have only seen pictures on the Web and Magazine. They had the Aqualights I was looking for. Prices were a little more than online pricing...but not too bad.
They had everything I wanted...execpt for the Agaramax (which was my main reason for going). They had sold out and their new shipment had not come in.
I also did not see a dead nor a diseased fish in the place. All the fish were lively. My sons had a great time watching the crabs.
I will definately go back. I am not as impressed with how the other animals were kept...but they look like they do a great job with thier fish.
I also found a few others in the area:
It is a small place, marine only, but prices seem good (they had refractometers for only $40)
Which is Zoo Creatures, it is about 15 min from Salem, NH. It was closed before I got there...but place looks huge and boast 10,000 gallon of livestock in the display designed by the New Engand Aquarium. Again...I did not get a chance to go in..but looks huge.
