    Passing through Houston and plan on stopping at a couple stores... suggestions?

    Passing through Houston this weekend and plan on hitting a couple of the LFSís. Iíve gone to FJW and Oceanlife and plan on stopping by those two again. Others, like Fish Gallery for instance, didnít have much the last time I went and I donít think I will make a stop there again.

    Stocking a new 120g with coral, so any place that has nice (and inexpensive) frags would be places Iíd like to go check out!

    Unfortunately, Iím headed to San Antonio and taking I-10. Iím willing to go a little out of the way, but donít have the time to spend traveling all over Houston.

    So any help narrowing down the destinations would be helpful!

    Those 2 stores are going to do you right! Both have lots of inventory, you could check out City Pets as well on your way out and then just jump on the tollway north to I10 west. Hope you have safe travels!

    Yep, Those two are your best bet. FJW is always a favorite.

    Infinity fish has stepped it up the last few months. Fjw and oceanlife for sure. Citypets, infinity, and adg are worth the detour. In San Antonio you can go to aquarium design on San Pedro. It is pretty good if you are passing by.

    Coming from SA on I10 you will pass by Cinco Ranch Aquariums off 99.

    Depending which way you go you can hit FWJ and Urban Aquatics off I610 & 290 as theyíre relatively close.

    Other options are Oceanlife and City Pets which are in the middle or Infinity and Fish Bowl on the outskirts.

    Aquarium World on 290 has some rare gems on a semi-frequent basis as well. While corals are not their main focus there, you can sometimes find something really nice for a good price. My most recent find was a beautiful hammer coral with 9-10 heads on it. It has some of the most intense green tentacles with near indigo tips on it I have ever seen. I think I only paid $50 for it and I found one similar to it online for like 30 per head... so they are work swinging in for a quick second on the way to FJW's.

    Big fan of Oceanlife....everything I get there did very well in my tank and the prices were very good. I got to know the guys at Fish Gallery in The Woodlands and they buy back my chaeto for store credit but that is out of your way from I10.
