Hey all, just getting back into the hobby and see that Manhattan aquariums is closed down. Are there any other saltwater fish stores in NYC? Looking to grab some fish and coral for a new system.

In Manhattan only Pacific Aquariums is left open when it comes to mom and pop stores with saltwater. After that some Petco locations have saltwater, like the new flagship store by Union Square.

But in terms of corals, you are better off hitting the other boroughs.

Exactly what @Geraud stated. The Petcos in the city have saltwater fish that aren't that bad. I would not trust petco corals lol. In Brooklyn you have picks between Pop Corals, Mos Reef and Exotic Reef. All have salty fish and coral.

in terms of corals your better off getting from hobbyists then Petco, just due to pricing and overall health of the coral.

As much as I want to shop local (and I do when I get out of the city), the prices online are at least 2x cheaper and usually more selection/better quality.

Online is hit or miss, mostly a miss. Who wants to pay $50-100 for a 1in frag. Local hobbyists are the real plug. If you’re down to trek Queens, NY Reef Aquatic is pretty great

I've gotten stuff from a small vendor called Goat corals (randomly appeared on an ad), and they've always sent nice big frags. In particular, their Zoas are really solid. When I was looking for torches, I've also ordered from Riptide Aquaculture with their July 4th sale and it was nice as well. I'm sure most other vendors are pretty solid, even if the colors they show are not always that accurate.

I will agree you can find nice deals on this forum too.
