Also from Richmond here.

Ibrahim - I don't use any local shops in Richmond except in an absolute emergency. There are three saltwater shops (Atlantis Aquariums, Richmond Aquarium and Fish World), but their prices are all very high in my opinion. I'm lucky in that my job takes me all over Virginia and Maryland, so I've scoped out some that I really like:

Aquatic Obsession - Manassas, VA
Reef Chief - Suffolk, VA
Atlantic Sea Farms - Virginia Beach, VA
Fish Safari - Virginia Beach, VA
Tropical Lagoon (I think that's the name) - Silver Spring, MD

On occassion, I'll hit up Care A Lot Pet Supplies in Newport News, Virginia Beach, or Chesapeake. Their livestock is very much hit or miss. Some of the area Petcos are the same way, but lately more often a miss.

For supplies, I mail order through Drs. Foster & Smith or if I'm working in Baltimore, I'll often drive up to That Fish Place in Lancaster, PA.

K cool I know a few of those and some in MD but just wanted to check if there were any I didn't know.

Anyone in the roanoke area?There is Petco around but the selection is awful.They have six tanks total the rest are messed up.Ultimate Aquariums has crazy hours.The staff is very knowledgeable.Then P.A.W.s in lynchburg is kinda far but I guess that's the price to pay for salt water.Is there any others around this area?Blacksburg maybe.
