S. California Aquarium and Fish/Coral Store recommendations?


Recommended Posts

I'm going to be in S. California and I'm looking to visit some cool aquariums and fish/coral stores. Any recommendations?


I'll be staying in Carlsbad but I have car and am willing to drive south to San Diego or north to Orange County.


I've been to Scripps aquarium which is amazing. Does anyont know if they offer a 'behind the scenes' tour?


Thanks, Doug

+1 to above and:


Reef Raft in Garden Grove

Coral Collection in Fountain Valley

Aquatica in San Marcos

Phil Your Aquarium at Lake Forest

Coral Collection in Tustin

AquaSD in San Diego


and there's other LFS that's better than AquaSD that I don't quite remember...

Earthquakes can ruin it though... :(


Don't forget traffic.


Vivid Aquarium is one I'm going to visit today or Saturday.


If you're in that area, you can check out Unique Corals but they're an appointment only store. However, you can check out their website.
