Are there groups in Virginia that trade or work together? Reef central is so huge and everyone is so spread out. Just looking for people in my area or even state that trade and work together.

Thanks

Not to hijack your thread, but this would also interest VA reefers im sure. Anyone know any good fish stores within approx 1 hour of Danville, VA, which if you don't know is almost in the center right on the border of NC. Any stores in NC, or VA. Just looking for some suggestions mabye some stores I haven't been to yet. I have been to Aquamains in GB, The Aquarium Center in Kernersville, and PAW in Lynchburg, and last but not least Triangle Tropical in Durham, and other thoughts. I love looking for new LFSs.

There is a small store here in Lynchburg, Just up the road from PAW. It's called JJ's pets. The have a small selection, But it has gotten better over the last few weeks. Prices are half from what PAW has.
Not sure if its worth the drive here just for that. But maybe in a few more weeks it will be. I will keep you posted.

I've been to JJ's but that was a few months ago, so mabye they have gotten better. I might make a trip out of it, go to PAW, and JJS, and poke around Lynchburg while im there, anythings better then Danville :)

Yea they are starting to get better.
The tanks look very clean and the prices are lower than PAW.
Not much of a selection, but it's building slowly
Have you seen any good liverock in the VA area lately? Nothing good here in lynchburg for a few months now.

caughey, not realy, I got my live rock from liveaquadia.com, and it was very nice, and much cheaper then any LFS, as far as selection goes, Aquamains in Greensboro, and Triangle Tropical in Durham seem to have the biggest selection, but it is kinda plain no corraline etc...
