View Full Version : Visiting Pueblo from Dallas TX, anything of reef interest?

05/25/2006, 09:11 AM
I may be spoiled due to Dallas mass LFS population, cant seem to find anything in Pueblo (Im at I-25 and N Elizabeth). Im here from Thursday - 25th to Monday nite. Leaving early tuesday morning.

I always like to visit the LFS picking up frags and maybe even the local reefers houses. Serious proponent of captive propogation, and the DFWMAS.org club is even working on getting a propogation system up for the club for coral banking.

Can anyone help a fellow reefer out? Dont want to drive more then 50 miles and would be cool to visit some of you locals (anyone in Pueblo who has SPS frags for sale (sorry left my inventory at home :) )) or even donation to the coral banking system well have up soon...

There are a couple of stores in Colorado Springs.

Neptunes Realm -- 2640 W Colorado Av

Mr Aqua USA 105 E Fillmore St (just East of I 25 on Fillmore)

Seascape Aquatics 5038 N Academy Blvd. (Take Academy exit (north end of Springs and go away from mountains)

and if you get lucky this is the bargain place to shop.

Exotic Aquatics 2926 Wood Av (Also off Fillmore exit. Go East to Wood ave and turn right. In small strip shopping center next to 7 - 11).

Good luck.

If your lucky enough to be there when new fish and corals arrive you'll get a good deal......... otherwise he probably won't have much in stock.

Nick, I have not been on the forum in the last couple of days, or I would have gotten in touch. I see Joe already contacted you, and you are more than welcome to call me at (719)561-5090. I have a 180 mixed reef that I would be more than willing to show if you like. And Joe is right about the one horse (lfs) town. Pet Paradise has a nice store and sometimes a decent selection. They do tend to carry more lps than sps though.
