You guys are awesome.... I went to Tropi-quatics.... Awesome shop ... Just not what I was looking for.... But I went to Aquarium Adventure and was super impressed.... I got two Taiwan Reefs and a Sunshine peacock small but showing colors... Then on my way back I called my lfs... And they just got some Star Sapphires in so I went and got a couple of them..... All in all excellent trip... Thanks for the advice!!!

You'll need a time machine to see a good store, unfortunately.

I don't know if you have ever been there, but Aquarium Adventure is located along 355 at the Boughton road exit. It's right next to the Ikea you can see from the highway. While it's not a mom and pop "local" pet store, it probably has one of the best selections around.

I'm not too familiar with the St. Charles area. What highways will you be going down? People might have some suggestions based upon the areas you're driving past.

I'm from Peoria so I am not familiar with the area... but I have GPS and can get there!!!! So please let me know... I hope I posted this in the right area!!!
