    I'd have to say my favorite LFS is The Ark Pet Shop for multiple reasons, but I tend to go to a few stores. As for online, Bulk Reef Supply for other things I need/want if I cannot get it locally, but nothing in the way of buying coral online (something I have yet to do). What are your favorites, John?

      I have more then one
      the Ark is good for a close place
      Aquatica in Tinley Park is a great shop, plus the Italian deli and the bakery in the same strip mall is a great plus
      reefwise is an awesome store lots of corals and lots of fish you don’t normally see
      Aquapros is a good shop great prices and usually a good selection
      Pet Haven I like them because they have fresh water too

      online
      bulk reef supply
      then Dr Foster but only dry goods

        Nice list, John. Aquatica is on my list of places I still want to visit. Reefwise is just amazing for corals, but my wallet takes a big hit anytime I go there.

        Has anyone made it out to Chicagoland Aquariums (Kush Corals for their coral sales side)?

            I've been there, its not as nice as The Ark or Aquatica, but he (Kush) gives better deals when he doesnt need to ship... I was there over the summer and he had some amazing nems that I was drooling over...

                  Sounds like it is worth the trip still. The flower nems have been calling to me lol.

                  He is over in Bradley, IL, just north of Kankakee. I think I remember someone saying he used to work at Aquatica (and he does have a good bit of tattoos).

                        The Ark
                        Aquatica—fish
                        Aquapros—fish ,corals, great rock, great prices
                        Reefwise—corals,fish
                        Chicagoland— First time I went I thought the coral didn’t match the pics online. Seems like he is getting more
                        now though. More LPS then anything else. Nice guy though.

                        In October I went with my DD to Orlando for softball. Went to World Wide Corals. I have ordered from them 3 times now. I will say this,
                        no place around here is even close to them. Best coral hands down period. If you ever have the chance GO.
