I came across a place called Exotic Aquatics in larchmont also known as Reef Shop. Going to check and call this place on Boston Road. I will drive by and see if this is true. Just wanted to know if anybody heard of it. Would be nice if its new and close by ..

...been to both their shops (Larchmont and Norwalk), in the past few months, IMO...prices are ridiculous ...nothing special, tanks not the best kept...not worth the trip

You're much better off going down to Maximum in Mt Vernon!

He's 5 minutes from my house but he's not a very nice or personable individual, kinda awkward being in that small store with him. Prices are def ridiculous although he will work on price and he does have an ad on CL that if you mention it you get 25% off but that just gives you an average price, not much of discount. One time I also talked to him about MR and he pretty much made fun of these kind of communities saying how we're pretty much all fish nerds and he can't sit around and talk about tanks all day which made me question his reason for selling fish in the first place.

This is all just my opinion from my experience but I think you should still go to get your own opinion about the place, especially if its just around the corner for you. Good luck

I just went for the heck of it - Turns out it sucked. It was the tiniest LFS I've ever seen, and they had tons of sick looking fish and bleached Anemones for sale... For sale! That's a terrible thing for them to be doing. The prices we're pretty bad and overall I'd say it's a bad LFS.

Haha you did warn me, but I decided I wanted to see for myself. No need to go back there, but I wanted to check it out.

I know this is an old thread but I went into this place the other day because I needed something on the fly and these people are insane they are asking 50.00 for the small bottles of b ionic and esv magnesium which is more then twice as much as everyone else plus they give out bad info. They have ads on craigslist saying they affiliated with the guys from the show tanked
