    7 Seas Aquatics had their soft opening recently and a grand opening is in the works for the near future. They are located in the City Square Shopping Center at 260 West Main St, Suite 212 in Hendersonville, TN 37075. I'm sure many of you know Rene and Jim from Aquatic Critter, they will be manning the place most days. I helped with the computer setup there so I'm putting the word out about the place. Their tanks have just finished cycling and base livestock only for a few more weeks but if you need generic stuff or water, there is now a store closer to us here in Sumner county. Pics kinda blurry b/c of the sunlight coming through the windows but the place is coming along nicely.

    Assuming they'll carry saltwater fish? I was a little disappointed with the Critter's selection yesterday (but was there at the end of the day).

    I'm somewhat expecting it to be Aquatic Critter north and don't expect much difference between the two shops. Hoping to be wrong, nothing wrong with AC just some more variation in selection around here would do wonders for the hobby here in the mid state.

    Yes they will carry saltwater and freshwater fish and their selection will grow in the coming weeks as the filtration comes fully online. The store will remind you of Aquatic Critter as there are plenty of the same people involved. They will have a couple coral tanks as well. Tennsquire, they usually get fish in once a week so the closer you're there to the shipment date the better the selection.

    Ya, I'm just setting up another tank so it's helpful to have a LFS within 10 minutes.

    I wonder if they order tanks for customers. I'm looking for a 120; Petco won't order them anymore (they told me nothing over a 55).

    Aquatic Critter will order them...or if cost is not an issue and you want the best, order one from Reef Savvy... And I believe this place is somehow associated with them...

    Easy... I drive to Nashville to the Critter or to Birmingham to shop for my saltie friends. Nice to have another option within reach. I've also been known to hit Chattanooga and even been to Marietta Ga for a nice LFS. The one here in Huntsville.. Well, it leaves much to be desired.

    FL is a much longer drive than the hr and 15minutes it takes me to get to Nashville. Lol. I'm not interested in an 8-9 hr trip for a fish. I'd have it shipped for that. Would be an overnight trip and would be much more expensive to get my petsitter involved. Thanks but I'll stick to my Nashville/BHam route.

    If I happen to be down there already... Yeah I'll drive a few extra miles. Like the Marietta, Ga trip was work related so it was awesome. But for shopping close to home... My limit is 1 1/2-2 hrs. ;)
