LI is the place for corals and fish :)

Ive been to a couple places in the city and i have to say LI LFS blow all the city LFS out of the water. I heard MA was great but that one store out of so many. You can walk into pretty much any LFS on LI and find the weird,the popular and the what the hell is that almost every time you walk into one. I have to say us Long Islanders are spoiled when it comes to LFS

I agree 100%, + no tolls to pay, no bridges or tunnels to cross, parking available in almost all of them. I'm with Duke on this one.

Pay a toll and come to Maxreef in Yonkers and you'll see what a real lfs is that gives great prices and awesome selection. Been to many lfs and always come back to Max cause they are unbeatable.

Hey im sure they have good stuff but the selections and prices the LFS on LI cant be beat. You mentioned one store in Yonkers,Im talking about almost every store on LI has something someone would want and are usually priced to sell. Sure there are a few duds but then you get in your car and drive 20 minutes and there is yet another LFS that is better
