MMM southbay looks empty... there's some missing shops I'm pretty sure.

Love the new layout.
Was going to say... there's a gap in Palo Alto and Sunnyvale... would be a good location.

I normally only add stores that I have personally visited to ensure that they are "non-sleazy" places. If I do visit Keith's and/or get sufficient positive reports I will add it. I want to keep the map high quality and only include "worth your time" places.

You might notice that a few stores which have been around for a long time aren't listed. (most commonly mentioned is a certain store in San Francisco which does "bag sales" of fish).

I'll admit it. I found the BAR Local Businesses Page difficult to use because I don't really know my Bay Area geography that well. (Shameful but true for someone who's lived here 16 years and been coming for more than 20).

So I made a map of the LFS and fish businesses that I've visited on Google Maps and invite others to use it and add places they shop at and/or think are worth visiting.

I have specifically included closed businesses (making sure to give them a red place marker and adding an appropriate description). Right now the map allows anyone logged in to google to edit the map. If that turns out to generate spam I will switch back to invited collaborators only.

Hopefully useful to others. I'm eager to find out about places nearby where I already go that I've not known about.
The California Reef Company Co. seem to have a new weblink www.careefco.com/

Rather sad that the red "closed" ones seem to outnumber the current stores these days.
Rough business.

The map is quite a bit out of date:

Seascapes Fish & Pets Inc. closed in 2015

Baja Reef closed end of 2015

California Reef Co. moved. New location: 37420 Cedar Blvd Suite A, Newark, CA 94560

Updates completed. I also made a few other changes suggested by reef central users. Additional updates welcome. If someone is interested in volunteering to do updates I would be happy to offer edit privileges. I had to disable "community" edits a couple of years ago because of repeated vandalism. Google Maps provides no tools to roll-back vandalism except to download the data as a backup.
