    Found my new favorite fish store.

    Stopped by Vivid for the fisrt time today, and I'm in love. The corals are kinda expensive but worth it. I picked up a scripps green staghorn about 3 or 4" and several branches for $20. No more $5 and $9 racks for me. I will save up and go to Vivid from now on.

    I like how they carry hard to find and unique pieces, although you pay a premium. Rainbow Pet Store, near Burbank, is also a place to check out.

    The only thing I don't like about vivid is that they don't have a nice selection of zoa's.

    Make sure to dip corals from them. They have a flatworm problem. Or at least used to.

    No matter where you get your coral from you want to dip it.

    Isn't vivid the guys that have half the tank lit with LEDs and the other with traditional MHs?

    They already do and it seems to be equal growth on both sides they have 9 radions and I think 1000watts of MH

    I actually just looked at what came off it and was sitting in the bottom of the bucket. And I found a few things. A couple of copapods and a couple of black string things.

    Yeah theres a frag section under T5, LEDs, & MH. I like to look most of the time while I'm in the area. The 800 display was impressive last time around. I have to pass by again.
