Strictly Fish in Long Beach bought all of James' dry goods outright and poss even some of his floor model tanks as well. All the stuff I saw looked like it had been sitting around for quite some time as it was covered in dust. It might be worth checking out Strictly's next big sale because if they picked the stuff up on the cheap they might be looking for a quick turn around.

The rumor mill says the new owner has some connection to James or the store (employee or long time customer perhaps) and appears to be willing to give it a go.

they also bought some of their coral...talked to some of the employees about a colt that was mangled...they said that it was from PR and that they fragged it like crazy...
