    For actual fish/coral stores I would say Aquatic Warehouse and Octopus Garden since you can knock out both stores as they are close to each other. I also like Pet Kingdom as Nick mentioned they carry ORA corals and they have a huge selection of reptiles if you have any interest in that. It's about 20-25 minutes from AW and OG. If you are coming down the 5 freeway, you can also check out the Pond Source in Carlsbad which has the same owner as AW. Their coral/fish selection is not as big as AW but they do get in some unique pieces from time to time and checking out all their koi is cool.

    We stock hundreds of freshwater fish. Everything from rare African Cichlids to fancy goldfish. We also have a large selection of glass and acrylic tanks, stands, canopy's and an excellent stock of virtually every supply item needed by the new or advanced aquarium hobbyist. From Protein Skimmers to live freshwater plants we have in stock and an educated staff that can answer all your questions.

    Custom Aquatic is more of an online store, they don't really take walk ins and are dry goods only. I'm pretty sure Fragcity no longer exists.

    ...Both of those are awesome places, Aquatica is still not open for a bit. Shipwreck Cove does a 1 week guarantee on all fish, and their customer service is second to none!
