LFS info needed for Holiday visit

Happy Holidays all~
This time of year gives me some time off to take (force) the kids on a road trip and look for some fish or corals, etc.
I'm looking at being in the Cranberry area and saw "Under the Sea" advertised. Is this a decent shop to visit/purchase?

Also, is there any thing else near by or on the way? We are coming from the Youngstown area.

We've been to Seahorse a couple of years ago, bought some rock, everything looked great but the coral were on the big side for me (big as in large size or expensive) as I prefer frags or small stuff to watch them grow.

I really dont have the time to go much further down the pike.

thanks all~

Aquaworld usually has a good selection of smaller frags but I haven't been there in a while. You should probably call first. They are about 15 minutes south of Cranberry.

Wet Pets has a really nice selection of fish and is about 45 minutes south of cranberry.

Thanks for the info... and I must say that "Under the Sea" was a nice place to shop. Although a little low on fish after the holiday rush I ended up buying some corals and the staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. They have a huge dry goods/supplies section also and probably have anything you would want or need. I will be back!

At "Under the Sea" I mentioned that I was from the RC while checking out ($) and they said they saw this post and even gave me directions to "Aqua World".

My kids dissapeared into "Aqua World" and got a kick out of the alligator tank, it seemed every corner they turned they found something cool and had to come get me while I was trying to look at all the corals. Ended up buying some stuff there also and came home with my full cooler of corals and frags, oh yeah and an empty wallet
