Good LFS in South OC?

I just moved to South Orange County (Laguna/Aliso area) and am working on getting my tank set up. Anyone know of a good LFS in the area?

I'm north of you in Tustin, but I like Coral Oasis, Pacific Reef Fountain Valley, and Coral and Fish Center. There's a few more I need to check out.

I lived in Aliso before moving to Dana Point, and it's pretty sad that there's NOTHING down here worth going to.

I generally drive up to Pacific Reef in FV. Occasionally I go to Coral Oasis. I'm entirely unimpressed with the Reef Room (no prices / prices vary depending on employee) and Fantasea on Camino Capistrano is small but may have potential in a while (they were very new when I visited).

The old Fish 2000 (now puppies 'n guppies) has some pretty good deals. If you remember the old store forget about it. However the new guy there is doing a decent job of turning it around. The tanks and systems are are all new, but the are constantly bringing in new stuff. His prices on dry goods are well within internet prices. Not a lot in sps but lots of lps and leathers.

If you want nice sps corals and very knowledgeable staff, take the trip to Reefermadness, I promise you will not be disappointed.

OC Aquatics in HB, Coral and Fish Center in Costa Mesa/Santa Ana, Coral Oasis in Irvine and your local fellow reefers are your best bets!!!!
