This was posted on my local forum. I thought it was cool as heck so wanted to repost it here. I'd love to have one of these places local to me. All you guys near LA are lucky.

that was unreal amount of pink tail triggers and flame angels. It almost makes you wonder how many fish are left in the sea.

Wish I could just shop there. Amazing. I wonder if there is a connection between SDC and LA (Eric Kohen and Kevin Kohen)? Might explain why LA gets so many rarities. Pretty darn cool.

I pee'd on that street!

It is quite the sight, and there are many others on that same street. And as far as a connection between LA and the SDC facility or the others on that street, if you could go there you'd know the answer is yes.

Did you click on videos to see the second half and all the rest that are on there? I one, they showed a place that was making a 15' tall by 60' long, two sided fake coral wall for public display.

Thanks for link, enjoyed the second video of the visit more. According to info, Sea Dweeling has a WYSIWYG area for customers to look at called The Furnace (http://www.seadwelling.com/v-web/gallery/fish). Still, since they wholesale, have to order through LFS that deals with them.

Got to see in action the evil machine that attaches those metal clamps DDs & BZs use to close bags, very secure, but a PITA to open if you want to save bag LOL.

It says their vids are shut down due to some music rights issues. However, if you know the direct address to the individual video you can still watch.

Here's part 2 http://www.lafishguys.com/60-%20Fish%20Wholesaler-02.htm
