    Default Road Trip to Reef Paradise. What should I make sure to check out?

    This weekend I'm finally going to Reef Paradise since I've heard it's a great place. Anything specific I should make sure I don't miss? I'm buying myself a birthday present and not sure if it's going to be livestock or equipment or both.

    Man, I'm looking forward to this trip! Thanks for the heads up guys.

    Chris, we're thinking about Saturday, but given our insane schedules, I could see Sunday working too. We're playing it by ear. Hope we see you there.

    How does the place compare to Tropicorium? Stock? Prices?

    Its hard to compare to the Tropicorium since its huge. However Andy tanks are full. The Tropicorium has specials and Andy has lots of other stuff like chemicals odds and ends. None the less both great stores.

    Just got back from RP.

    Nice, knowledgeable staff

    Good selection of corals and decent selection of fish

    Ended up with a chalice and a purple bonsai

    Met up with Sir Patrick (Chris) and his family. Good seeing you again Chris!

    Next road trip is to Preuss. Been there before many times, but it's still a road trip. Then back to Kee's.
