Captivating Coral
739 Ste B Park Ave, Freehold, NJ 07728
(732) 414-6414
-one of my favs due to the fact that the staff actually wants to help. when they are stocked, nice selection good prices, friendly staff.
-hours aren't too great, and the location is very tricky
-it's hard to know when they get new stuff in. if they updated their online site or posted on forums, i'd know when to go in.

Aquaridise
415 State Route 18, East Brunswick, NJ 08816
732-967-9700
-this place is the same owner of Pets, Pets, Pets formally located in Somerset. They have 2 very, very small frag tanks.
-bunch of fish! prices for hermits are great. i got 12 blue legs for $10

Ocean Gallery
980 Route 22 East North Plainfield, NJ 07060
(908) 226-1100
-i used to love this place. i have to say it has gone down the drain.

Animals and Things
1040 U.S. 1 Woodbridge Township, NJ 07001
(732) 855-8515
-i haven't been in this place for quite some time. when i used to go, they had a great fish selection. i wonder if they have coral...

Aquatic Obsessions
1150 St Georges Ave Avenel, NJ 07001
(732) 634-8448
-one of my favorite stores. they always have fish and their coral selection always gets larger.
-kind of pricey..

Red Sand
318 North Ave Dunellen, NJ 08812
(917) 506-9649
-Feng is just one hell of a character. he has a lot of passion for this hobby. he tries to work with you on price which is cool.
-i haven't seen his new place yet..

No worries. I tried to be as unbiased as possible. I apologize if I seem biased. I have visited every store I listed, minus Feng's new store, and all my "reviews" are out of first hand experience.

Absolutely Fish
1080 U.S. 46 Clifton, NJ 07013
(973) 365-0200
-HUGE selection, dry and livestock.
-pricey, but expected due to location.


Elos AquaStudio
533 Millburn Ave.
Short Hills, NJ 07078
201-516-1000
-this store is beautiful. i went there last week and i was in awe. they had iPad mini's on the wall describing each fish in each tank.
-they had catalogs/books throughout the store giving info about each piece of livestock for sale.
-as any other elos product, the store is pricey. but then again the store is located in Short Hills, so that's expected.

Red Sand is now called Feng's Reef, just down about half a mile where he once was. Place is awesome. Still messy, he claims he's too lazy to clean it up and open shop, but he is open.
