    I recently visited this reef shop while on a winter holiday and just checked out their online site.  The website and pics of the shoppe's interior speak for themselves. Their livestock photography is amazing and are true depictions .
    It was a great place to visit, the staff was courteous, and went out of their way to make you feel "at home."  While their inventory is superior to any I have ever seen {better than any i visited in FL, San Diego, and No Cal}, the prices {when listed but, very few pieces had the price disclosed} where far beyond my current reefing bugdet. 
    The old adage held true in my case- "If you have to ask how much it costs, then you can't afford it."
    Nonetheless, it was a great visit and would urge others to stop by if they are ever on the east coast.

    The store looks awesome!  I remember seeing a thread about on Manhattan Reefs when I was doing research on Sfiligoi lighting.  I never did get to see the finished product, this store is definitely on another level.  Thanks for sharing!

    WOW that's a pretty impressive looking store. I can probably guess why there prices are pretty high! Looks like a pretty high end store with some high end equipment!

    the thought that this place actually had items ''for sale'' left me upon entering and returned during the last 10-15 minutes of my visit...it has the feeling of a museum...clean and full of info...and the staff acted as curators supplementing the info that was absent from the ''exhibits''
    the thought of making a purchase [regardless of the offering price and my finances or the ability to sustain the life on the voyage home] never occured to me until i noticed that there were no prices posted.  the whole experience was overwhelming but, enjoyable and informative.

    Pretty awesome coral museum there.........Hard to imagine it in the middle of the midwest isn't it?

    Another addage that I live by (and my own I think)

    "I'd rather look at a bunch of stuff that I can't afford, than a bunch of stuff that I can afford and don't want"
