    Screenshot_2018-03-04-20-12-17.png This is a section from the monthly news letter from Blue Fish, by the owner, Ryan.
    Well, as many of you know.... Blue Fish has stopped being a "Csea" club sponsor a while back. I have talked to Ryan many times about this. He is convinced that NOBODY from Csea ever comes into his store to shop ! Even after many of our members that DO shop there told him he was wrong. I have asked him when he was still a club sponsor to just mention "Fragginstein" in his news letters, and he never has. Now we ALL know that "Lear" has a fantastic frag swap....no doubt about it !!! And it lived up to it again this year ! Great job Lear !!! Guess this is all we get from Ryan...."there are other good local shows"....... Thanks for the honorable mention from Blue Fish...... For those of us that still go into Blue Fish to shop, please be sure to tell them you are proud to be a member of "CSEA" !

    I go to blue fish exclusively as all the other good stores are too far from me.

    We used to have a VERY GOOD relationship with them until they decided we did not go there enough even though our members told them we did ! Its a very nice store and we miss their support !!!

    i prefer dealing with the honest and helpful team at Triton Marine in Macedonia. if you want to know more about an aquarium store, check the better business bureau and make up your own mind.

    Triton tends to be my favorite. It’s right next to my work

    I am on the west side and would love to know where a good west side store is. I am close to aquatic technology and go there from time to time but the workers always seem not to have time for me and its hard to find good frags there in my opinion. Any suggestions would be great!

    To be honest I think AT is the best on the west side. Although I still haven’t made it to Aquatica bc of their crazy hours. I’ve heard very good things about them. RMS isn’t bad for equipment but I’m starting to shy away from their fish. Tanks are filthy and every time I go there it looks like the fish are dying

    I agree with RMS. I went there and the tanks looked terrible and two of them had dead fish floating in around which the workers didn't seem to care to clean out after I told them

    Aquatica, Salty Critter, and Something Fishy are my go to stores. Something Fishy is for freshwater but all 3 stores have a nice knowledge base and do not mind you picking their brains.
