They moved Locations I've been meaning to go see the new store. They've had their ups and downs over the years but used to be easily the best on the island. I think Sandy messed their store up badly and they had to retool.

Yea they moved to Arthur kill rd, they weren't affected by sandy at all and the new store although not as big as the old store is very nice.

Just left there a little while ago, had to get some sw for a water change. They are defiantly stepping up there game. They had a beautiful mated pair of snowflake clowns for $90 and they also had a bunch of individual clowns. As far as coral they had some very nice colonies decently priced but they are still lacking a frag tank, hopefully that will change.

If you live on the island I'd say yea check them out you got nothing to lose, just don't expect a frag section like most saltwater stores. The fish prices are very reasonable and like I said if your on the island you don't have to pay the dreaded VZ bridge toll lol.
