    As the title says I'm going to cocoa beach Florida in a few weeks. Any good lfs on the way there or near there? Thanks in advance!

    I live in Edmonton Alberta, does anyone else live here? Which LFS comes recommended. I like the one I'm at, but since I'm totally green maybe I'm settling without even knowing it.

    Hello.... so posted a while back in this forum about needing help to get the 3 foot zebra and 2 foot snowflake out of my tank... great ideas but job not done... so... having a maintenance company come and do a cleaning and they agreed to get the guys out of the tank (needed to reduce bio-load in...

    'The text that you have entered is too long (159068 characters). Please shorten it to 10000 characters long.' I hope nobody minds that I just made a new thread. Splitting all that up sounds incredibly tedious. This is a pretty cool store. The store as seen from the main entrance is the size...

    Hi everyone! So I'm settled in at school, it's my second week back, and im happy to say that the move went very well. I got my tank up here using this method, and all I lost was a single hermit crab. If you do need to clear everything out of your tank, try to get small inverts out first, since...

    Hello, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated as more confused than ever! Been setting up my first marine tank, just 180 litres, put in live sand and live cured rock, two powerheads, RO water, salt, and protein skimmer, put in some pure ammonia to start cycle, it cycled quickly though had...

    Before I go all out and give my lfs (chain of stores in the uk called dobbies) a piece of my mind. I need to just ask and confirm. "Should Ro water bought from a store have nitrates in it?" I ask because I have been fighting nitrates bad recently. We're talking 60-80's (and my refugium was @...

    Hey there, Needing some advice. Got some snails from the LFS and noticed an anemone like coral attached to one of their shells. From my research I am guessing it's a Majano anemone, so I'd like to destroy it before it spreads throughout my reef tank. Right now it's about the height of a...

    So a few weeks ago when I first started hunting around for a good LFS I came across one that had a bonded black and orange ocellaris clownfish pair. Of course I wanted them at the time but there was no way since my tank was new. Now a couple of weeks later with nitrites dropping and ammonia at...

    Didn't see a separate forum for accolades (feel free to move if needed) but wanted to point out that Jim's Exotic Fish on Sepulveda (for those in Southern California) was a great experience today. Jim himself was there and was not only very knowledgable but extremely helpful and patient. The...

    My LFS is currently hiring and my roommate is looking for a job so in the hopes of hooking my self up with some discounts at the LFS I am trying to get her a job there. They are fine hiring someone with no experience since they have a decent number of knowledgeable employees and she won't be...

    Quick question. In terms of a LFS getting new live stock in, should there be a certain period of time you wait before buying these new fish they just got in? Its obviously alot of stress on the fish im assuming being shipped and then placed in a new tank environment, and then being bought and...

    Hello everyone I recently got what I was told was a Xenia by my LFS; however I feel like it is not actually a Xenia. When I was handed it it fully retracted into what looked like a skeleton. Can ya'll help ID it? Here is a picture:

    I live in Greenville and was hoping I could get some help finding a few LFS in my area. Only one in town and its not exactly "nano friendly" when it comes to selection, lots of tangs and triggers. Any suggestions would be great thanks!

    Thanks for the fish Matt. Looks great. Needed some blue in the tank.

    Hey all. Just thought I'd share something I grabbed for the tank. For $2.50 I got 2 (2 for 1 deal) of these acrylic picture frames from aaron brothers. Works great and looks sharp. I'll prob paint the outside edges black just cause that's what all the lfs stores do and I like the look :)...
