New in Chicago

Hey, I'm Dave from Chicago... I used to keep freshwater tanks for years, but now want to get into Saltwater tanks... Looking to start a new tank, or get a used setup locally. Either way, Hello!

Hi, Dave-

I'm from Evanston, Neighbor! Have you checked out Old Town Aquarium? I recommend them, as well as Old Orchard Aquarium in Skokie. I've also heard good things about King Coral in Chicago, though I haven't visited yet.

Welcome to this forum, and to the area--

Old Town is where I go. Excellent knowledgeable staff. A bit on the pricey side, but when you see their tanks, thats why. Welcome to AA
