Buffalo Reef Shops

Hi,
I'm from Rochester but in Buffalo frequently now. What are your favorite shops in that area?

My wife and I visited the area 2 weeks ago specifically to go to the shops and ARC was our favorite. They have a huge selection of frags in very reasonable price ranges and they took a lot of time to answer questions about various corals for my wife. Buffalo Coral Reef is only second to me because ARC has a bigger selection. I haven't had the chance to visit any other stores in the area.

I recently went to ARC , and was impressed with the selection. They showed me the back room as well which blew my mind!

The back room at ARC(their online shop) is where it's at!

It's a 4 hour drive one way for me, and I've been there a couple times now.

I went to both ARC and Buffalo Coral Reef last fall. Both great stores. Probably spent 2 hours speaking with the owner of Buffalo Coral Reef.
