I can tell you that Animal Kingdom gets fish every Sunday and Tuesday. They also do not get deliveries, they pickup the fish themselves. I feel they have a bigger and better selection than Reef Fantasy. They never seem to have that many fish and very few really nice fish.

I'm not sure the remark about Reef Fantasy is accurate as they rarely seem to be open. Please correct me if I am wrong. Animal Kingdom, while pricey, seems to have the largest collection of corals and marine fish on the island. As to Petland Discount, they have four stores on the island and I have been to three of them but only one of them has marine fish, the one near the S.I. Mall.

Reef Fantasy Is GONE as in for good. It's just a memory. People Let it go!
There is a thread if you do a search about what happened.
Animal Kingdom is really not that pricey but I have seen worse. It's basically the only place left.
There aren't enough reefers on Staten Island to keep these places busy. Another factor are the bridges . Who is going to pay tolls $$$$ to come here to buy fish and corals unless they are traveling through SI to and from work.

Chris was in a serious car accident and was laid up for quite some time
the building owner did not renew his lease. Chris and his father Bill, are good people.
I agree let it go!

Also the Petland by the mall does not carry marine fish unless they recently started doing it again. All petlands on S.I. used to carry damsels, clowns and dwarf angels but no longer do.

The Petland by the S.I. Mall started carrying marine fish about a month ago. Their collection, clowns, damsels, yellow tangs and a few others, is small but it is a start. Petco, by the Outerbridge Crossing, also carries marine fish and supplies, including live rock. Again, it's a start.

Ok. I know the one by the mall carried those saltwater fish for a while but then stopped for a couple of years. I do not trust the Petco by the Outerbridge. Go in there one morning for the opening and you'll understand why. Usually at least 5 - 10 dead fish.
