I paid full retail price on livestock locally because I did't know any other source to get cheaper locally. Since I met Tim (Keen Reef) and Brad (Casper75) buying livestock at full price is the thing of the past.

Who else offer good deal locally?

I picked this up from Nemo for 35 bucks over the weekend...The best part is they even feed him before the purchase to make sure the fish eats...Only when I got home do I realized how much the fish is worth.

He caught my attention when I was looking at him and 25 secs later he was another color so I thought the glass was playing tricks on me. I will try to take some pics of him tonight when I get home.

Nah, he is sometimes purple, sometimes blue, and sometimes green.

Saltwater City has some great corals for really good prices. I was just in there an hour ago and it took all my strength not to walk out with all the great zoas they have.

Trihn, that's a great find!!! I've heard about Nemo many of times that they have great price on fish. I need to stop by there.

Saltwater City is another place I need to stop by and look around.

Also if anybody is looking for large colonies or rocks with multiple corals on it they have both. They have one rock that is covered with orange/blue rics, green sps, and radioactive dragon eye zoas.

Nice find Trihn!

I;ve always been skiddish about Nemo; they're quality used to be really dodgy. I'll have to swing by again and see what's going on!

It is hard to beat Tim on price and service. I got one of the Humu triggers and the other one he has is 5" for only $22.00, plus his corals look super!!
Thanks Tim!!!
