    We managed to find a place with unbeatable pricing. I've been watching this place on FB for a while and never ventured over there. Finally a friend asked if I ever heard of them and we decided to take a trip up there. It's out of the guys garage so I was alway skeptical so never ventured out alone. The guy was awesome and knowledgeable, had awesome prices, lots of stock. Picked up a nice size bubble tip anemone for my Maroon Clown. The clown fish killed all the anemones in the past because I think they were just to small. The clown hosted this anemone instantly and will not leave it's side. It's awesome to see. Hopefully, It will make it this time. IMG_4406.JPG IMG_4408.JPG IMG_4409.JPG IMG_4410.jpg

    It was a great experience. We called the guy at like 6:30 at night he was like "sure come on over" spent like an hour with him. He had a Moorish Idol healthy as can be for 45 bucks pretty big fish. Among other great items. Clowns for ten bucks etc etc.

    Dangerous acquaintances to have, I would have a hard time reeling in my self control. Once you start to think about setting up another tank just for a specific fish (clown) you saw, then you know you're hooked.

    My self control failed me yesterday. I told my friend I'm not buying nothing and he said the same thing. LOL we both walked out with bags. smh. He made out though he got two clowns and a sweetlips fish for 40 bucks.

    I have been to more than one garage and have had great success. There are several people in my area that sell $5 and $10 frags as a side hobby/business. I became fondly with one and he always had great stuff at excellent prices. No store overhead or anything that increases cost. After a while i started to bring my own buckets and limited the amount of cash i brought. Thank god he did not take credit cards!!!

    That awesome Rolo! What a score!

    For me, once you find a good store, it's basicaly the only one to get your business.

    Around here/probalby like you too, many people once you get to know them they are more than willing to give frags, and trade frags, the occa. fish for great deals and/or free too.

    I'm glad you made the trip to this 'garage', that's so cool when it's way better than ever expected!

    PS- And I still say you are Lou Diamond Phillips operating under a 'screen name'!- Rolo ;-)
