Good looking tank I like the 2 rock islands. I see in your tag line you have 4 Damsels what other fish do you plan to stock?

Just added a lawnmower Blenny and a sand shifting star. Getting a Yellow tang, and either a Flame angle or Flame hawkfish this weekend. All depends on what is in stock at the LFS really.

Good question!

Orcutt is a GREAT selection but thier prices are alittle higher then the others. The Lompoc pet store has GREAT prices but not a large selection. Lost pets seems to be the best of all 3, Great selection and resonable prices. I will most likely hit all 3 and see what they have.

You should check out Wet Pets in Arroyo Grande and Atlantis Aquarium on State st. in Santa Barbara. When you are in those areas. They are far but way better stuff then what we got locally.

Orcutt Aquarium has a bunch of new fish. They went to LA to stock up. I got an Atlantic Blue tang from them. They had another one that was smaller. The store is looking alot better!

I usually check out all of the shops when I travel, although I don't need anything.

I'm loyal to Wet Pets. Joe has always taken care of me with good prices and stock. He makes trips to LA for new stock every other Monday, so call to make sure that you are not on the off week.

About three weeks ago I heard that Cortez Coral, in Carpenteria, is moving from their location next to the post office and is going to be on Ebay only. (Rent too high.) Does anyone know about this? They have the best coral selection, by far, of all of the local stores.

I saw a post on Craigslist saying that they are going to join with Extreme Marine in Ventura. I just called them and they are @ 1494 Palma Dr, Ventura, Ca. I think it's a couple blocks from Tats.
