So a quick review on a couple LFS spots I saw this week.
First one I went to is called Creative Aquarium. It's in South Tampa on Dale Mabry, going towards the Airforce Base. If I remember right it's after Kennedy. This place is not real big but he has some amazing looking coral and nice prices. They do have a lot of the stuff you would normally see but I saw a bunch of stuff I only saw online when I was in Morgantown. Frags are nice prices and not super small either. I'd recommend it for sure and the owner, I'm guessing he's the owner, is a nice guy.
Second place I went to is Marine Warehouse Aquariums and they are on Hillsborough in tampa. I'm not sure of the other road it's close to but I do know it's like 2 minutes from Sheldon. This place is also a sweet place to go to. They are a lot bigger than the last place and are pretty much a one stop shop. They seem to have good prices are on tanks/stands, the coral selection was nice and the prices were not bad at all. Some of the larger coral seems to be a bit expensive but I'm guessing that may be the norm for the larger sizes. The staff don't really say much to you or reach out which was nice for looking around and not being bothered but when I did try talking to one of the guys, he wasn't real friendly but he could've been having a bad day. Who knows? I still would recommend it for sure.
Hope this helps out for those who haven't been there and want to. I also want to add that I was in Morgantown, WV where the prices were ridunculous so if you check it out and say the prices are high then point me into the right direction. Thanks!
