Corals and Fins is a really nice store. It's pretty small, but the prices are the best I have ever seen! love The owner is a guy named Lee who is super kind. If you subscribe to Corals and Fins' mailing list, you'll get frequent e-mails letting you know about deals and what is in stock. Lee also started giving customers loyalty cards, and after a certain amount of money spent at his store, you get 15% off. Pretty cool!

I stopped by this morning and picked up my new cleanup crew! Lee was super great, and when Samantha went later that day for her mandarins, she was kind enough to get me an emerald and ruby crab, and.... My NEW FISH! which will be unveiled when I have a good picture lol Very Happy

Lee is the best! The fish wisperer! I've gotten both my clown tang and regal angel from him (along with various other easy to keep fish) and everything he's ever sold me has lived! Smile

Definitaly going to tell you the truth and won't sell you something unless he's confident its going to live. You can just hang out in his store too. Not trying to push a sale at all.

Best guy ever! Oh and prices are great too cheers

+1

I just got my new mandarins from Lee. I accidently bought two males, so I called him up freaking out. He let me bring one back and swap it for a female. Saved the day! Very Happy He's super nice. And, my mandarins seem to be doing well (eating and happy), except for the fact that they hide whenever I walk up to the tank... Sad

Was super excited to get a frag of flame algae there, and...I bought a panda goby! mr. green Hadn't planned on the goby purchase, but it was sooooooo cute that I couldn't resist! ashamed Also entered Lee's holiday raffle while there. Wink

From all the hype I heard about this store, I didn't anticipate it being so small...

yes, what he doesn't make up for in size he makes up for in prices! He matches any local shops prices on livestock too!

If you want something you can usually have him special order it though..

I will be the third to say it's a small shop, but he does have the lowest prices around, will match a price if it isn't, emails you when new fish come in and what they specifically are, will special order fish for you, and will answer a text on a day he isn't even working. That's why I love it Very Happy

Picked up my red/orange Linkia from Corals and Fins about a week ago. I had always wanted one and of course it was the lowest price I had ever seen so I couldn't resist getting it! Also there is a new tank set up with more coral!!!

It had some nice looking acans, tongue corals, a few nems and other stuff in it. He also has a biocube with a huge mantis in it guarding its entrance to the front of its cave lol.

Stopped by Lee's yesterday to check out the Memorial Day sale. Didn't end up buying any corals, but left with a couple of emerald crabs and snails. As usual, Lee was so nice, and everything is reasonably priced in his store. Wish the Memorial Day sale had included livestock other than coral, though. Neutral

Oh! And, I finally saw the mantis! But, it was face-first in his cave, so I just saw his butt... Sad
