    Hey LivingReefs!

    My name is Jay,

    I'm from Los Angeles, CA where the saltwater scene is pretty big.

    I would like to let you guys here at living reef about our new Los Angeles Aquarium Society.

    We are a saltwater/freshwater aquarium club based out of LA County.

    Thanks guys, and yeah I've visit a couple since I've moved here. The pricing in LA is pretty darn good compared to Texas.

    LOL youre telling me. I went back to visit my husbands family and this hobby is terribly overpriced there. Not to mention its not on every street corner like here. You have to prepare for the drive there

    That's because all the wholesalers are right there next to LAX.

    You should check out So Cal Tropical in Fullerton for Dry Goods, Amazing Reefs & Aquariums in Orange, Vivid in L.A., Age of Aquariums in Long Beach

    Ill be honest most everyone here buys their stuff from people with their wholesaler license. The prices are rock bottom on everything and it rocks.

    I know that. It doesn't take much to get the license, which in turn is going to drive up the prices at the wholesalers.

    I would think it would drive up the prices of LFS to cover their costs/overhead?

    The wholesalers got wind of it, and the garage guys selling low, so that is making the wholesalers drive up their prices. If you think about it, an LFS will walk in and spent thousands of dollars on boxes of stuff. Where as the garage guy spends maybe a thousand.
