Anyone who's been there have any opinion on how the place is? It's over an hour drive from here so I'd like to know if it's worth the trip.

Planning on a ride to nowhere this afternoon, maybe I'll swing by.
Union is having their St. Patty's day parade, so I will swing by either later to tomorrow. Its only 5 mins from me. I'll give word back.
Just got back.
The store has been there about 3 months now, doing Fresh and Saltwater.
The guy has been in the business and knows his stuff, place run by him and the wife. If you want Live rock, there is a ton of it, prices ranging from 6.50/lb to 10.00/lb. Rock from Fiji and Tonga.
As for the fish prices, examples Really big Moorish Idols 99, XL Blue Tang 124, Mandarins 29.99, Fathead (Sunburst) Anthia 38.
Alot of average run fish, triggers, chromis, damsels, and a few others, wrasses and such. Each tank has either its own hang on or sump underneath with skimmer in each.
Minimal on the hard corals, alot of softies, there are about 4 tanks setup for coral.
The store has the potential to be really nice, as with any business, as more money comes through the door, product availability will increase.
He stated that if you want anything to call him before and he will check his supplier and see if he can get it.
Screwed myself, wife saw the discus tank, and now wants discus in addition to the reef and a soon to be Trigger tank.
I will definately be shopping there in the future, owners were nice, quality of fish was good, and prices were good also.
He had sold alot of stuff, tanks were low, but he gets his delivery early during the week. I'll be back next week.
If you are into freshwater, he has a really nice selection too.
Minimal drygoods and they also sell tanks.

You saved me a lot of typing!
I ran smack into the parade so I turned around and headed up to The Fish Tank and Absolutely Fish and caught Aaron's on the way back.
If I lived in the neighborhood like Joe, I would go there. Mostly for freshwater. Tons of live rock, but for the price you can do better by running down to visit Bernie of SeaTrade Marine.
I would not drive an hour just for this place. But I would stop by if you are in the neighborhood.
Not too far off the Parkway if the Central/Southern crowd was heading up to Absolutely Fish.

Thanks for the reviews guys. I guess I'll wait to visit the store until I'm up in the area. Today's a good day to just sit around at home and clear out the Tivo.
