What up guys back with a shop, I will be opening hopefully by the first week of April. I will have full line of dry goods and hand pecked livestock. The shop will also have Discus far as freshwater goes. It will also have dartfrog setups and some high end reptiles. I want to have a shop like they do in Europe were you can hang out and talk fish. Dom it's time for a update lol.

Thanks guys for the support! I think a big city like Fresno needs a shop that is geared for the fanatical reef keeper and all that has to do with having nature in your living room. I'm going to have terrarium setups also, That is going to rival reef tanks.

For the opening it's going to be 10am to 7pm for 4/15 and 4/16. I do work a full time job so the hours are going to be 4pm to 7pm Tuesday to Friday and 10am to 6pm on Saturday the store will be closed Sunday and Monday. I will post some pics of the eye candy. If the store feeds my family, ill quiet my job and be there longer guys sorry for the short hours.

I know what it's like opening a business as my wife and I opened a pizza business in Clovis 11 months ago and right after we opened, the main air conditioning unit went out. The temperature inside reached over 100 degrees with a 50,000 BTU double brick oven inside making it worse so we had to close down until we got a new unit installed. Scary time that was just getting open and having to turn customers away, so good to see you got it working. Let us know when you have another shipment in and ready for sale.

Nice looking shop! Northern folks tried stopping by after the swap. There was a sign on the door "Be right back in 10". We had a long day so we waited around for a bit but had to hit the road after a long day. A lot of promising looking corals and from I can see from the outside looking in, primo dry selection!

In regards to the ATI parts. Are you able to order 48" reflectors for a Powermodule? A member on here just switched his out, but rather support a local store if at all possible.
