I just wanted to drop a note to say hello. I moved a few months ago to Forest Hills (from the Midwest) and I have tried to be patient setting up a new tank (sold my two old ones before I moved). I was curious as to what the best places for fish and dry goods are (I'll probably get my rock and frags from other hobbyists) in the area.


I'm probably going to do two tanks - One for just frags (40b) and one DT (maybe a 75?).


Anyway, I look forward to chatting with some of you!

Welcome to NY and Manhattan Reefs! I highly recommend Aquarium Village and Pets Warehouse in LI. They are well worth the trip and are stocked with anything you would need.

Welcome.
Im in same area.
As far as good LFS, there are quite a few. I suggest looking into Long Island stores, or Brooklyn. I personally am not a fan of the Queens stores.

(Fish town usa (queens), is ok for dry goods).

I mainly go to Aquarium Village & Pets Warehouse in LI. - Huge selections of dry goods, and livestock.

PoP corals (Brooklyn) & Manhattan Aquariums (city). Great for livestock & some dry.

Of course - Amazon.
The Bronx stores are great for livestock.

Your best bet is always the guys and gals here in MR.

Thank you, Brlynreef123 & Chefjpaul! Yes, my old tanks were bought 2nd hand. Pretty much the only new things in them were heaters and powerheads. The GF is dead set against 2nd hand tanks, though. I guess I should be happy she is letting me put something in the living room, tough. I'm probably won't be ready to start cycling for another 2-3 weeks and then the fun begins with daily testing! Whoo-hoo!!!

I live close alos, so if you need anything let me know
i agree with Chefjpaul, the stores he named are really good. Pops and Aquarium Village are the two best places to go. I have yet to visit Hot Reef though, but ive heard good things

Thanks again, everyone for the warm greeting. I look forward to meeting and talking with many of you over the next few years. Looks like I'm going to go with a 65 gallon bad boy with T5's. In a couple of weeks (once I get the tank back here) I'll be shopping for LS and LR!
