    Unfortunately I can’t highly recommend any local options. I wish I could, they’ve had plenty of opportunities to impress me over the many years.

    There are some stores with better reputations south of us that are too far for me to have much experience with but other members can chime in about. I get most of my information and do most of my spending online and with local reefers. This club is a great resource!

    Yep, and at an absolute pinch All About Fish out in Pleasant Hill, but probably not for live stock.

    that one and diablo corals are the ones i have frequently gone to, they are nice and close to my house. the one in brentwood was nice because the guy was so informative and helpful. but rather farther away.

    Welcome to the hobby! I’m a baby reefer as well, been in it for roughly half a year and joining this group has been tremendous help!

    As for fish stores, my two favorites are Neptune’s in SJ and Aquatic Collection in Hayward. AC has better selection of livestock, hard to find fish, cleaners etc. Neptune’s on the other hand has a ton of coral and has every equipment you’ll ever need... it’s also the one closest to me :)
