I had a great time too, Mike. That second store we went to was amazing and my corals made it home good as new.
Mike was so hospitable. Took us into his house and showed us his amazing tank. I got to see (and even touch!) those infamous linkia stars in person, it was really cool. And I even now have some of the still famous asterina stars and blue mushrooms that Mike was generous enough to share.
And if anyone is ever in Richmond, get Mike to take you to the stores there. The 3,000 gallon display at Richmond Aquarium alone was worth the 4 and a half hour drive down (curses 95 South and it's high...HIGH accident rate and subsequent standstill traffic). The second store we went to (I forget the name) had the most amazing display tanks and coral selection I've ever seen. Prices were a little steep, but the quality was amazing.
Scott was hospitable as well, showing me his tanks and new Fluval FX5 that I got to drool over. lol.
Thanks again guys, I had a great time.
