For those of you who don't know it's a fish/birds store off of Pleasant Hill by the mall right past Chili's and Hooters.

I went to get get a small percula for my 10 gallon nano and a cleaner shrimp and the guy that helped me, Keith I believe his name was, was very cool. They had a nice looking 10 gallon high nano up front with these really cool little zoo frags. I asked if I could buy some and he said they weren't for sale but he had some even smaller pieces in their coral tank that had broken off from those. He said since I was getting an expensive shrimp he would just throw it in.

I thought that was very cool. It's a small rock with about 5 or 6 polyps on it but they are pretty and I'm psyched. It was a cool gesture.

Also I pointed out a mandarine fish to my wife because they are so beautiful and she was like "WOW." But I said I can't keep one of those and the guy said "Most people can't. You gotta have a huge reef tank with a TON of live rock."

I'm standing there thinking. I have never heard an LFS store person say that before. At another nearby LFS they sell those to anyone who walks in the door no questions asked.

Anyway just thought I would share the experience. I will definitely go back there.

yeah, the guys at the Aviarium are very cool. I bought alot of my current setup from them. They're allways selling me stuff like that for way cheap. They're also pretty honest about their livestock. I've gotten a pair of percs, a six-line, and a cherub angel from them. All the fish are very healthy, but Kieth and Tom don't hesitate to tell me when they get a bad batch of fish in and I should wait to buy.

Nishant,

The Aviarium's # is 770-495-0540. One of the great things I like about them is that they stay open late, I think until 9:00 most nights. They stock up on Wed and Fri. They are right beside the Chili's and Hooters on the Gwinnett mall access road (Mall Blvd I think?), the same one that Hops is on.

Hope that helps.

Yep and right by Hooters too. I liked the service I got there. It's not a super huge high end reef store but the service I got there was excellent and the livestock I bought there is looking good and doing fine.

Your in Alpharetta? Have you tried Aquarium Showcase?
