Just wondering if Birmingham has died out? Not seeing anything going on around here anymore. Would love to find more people local to buy from and even figure out what all stores are still around. Maybe even start a Central Alabama Club if enough are interested since BARF has all but gone mute the past year

I know of maybe 2-3 other people that I've met since starting back in the hobby at the being of the year. I haven't seem much communication on here for the Bham area. There's only 1 store over on 280. I'd be interested but may be a little hard with the pandemic still kinda going around.

Nothing wrong with that, I'm from Chelsea and spend a lot of time around your area for work
I'm from Chelsea too, Not sure what kind of tank you have running, but would be glad to pass on some frags to you if interested. Nothing fancy, just some small pieces. Would be nice to have another reef contact in the area.

Any recommendations for a reef store in Birmingham area? will be visiting in the area, Driving through Tuscaloosa to get there.... so that's another idea. Thanks in advance.

Reeflife down 280 on east side of Birmingham. Not sure if you are passing through today, not sure about traffic since tornado passed across 280 right up the hill yesterday.
aquarium imports also in Hoover but have not been over there in a year or so.

What are you looking for? Reef Life usually has a solid supply of fish, but their coral selection has been pitiful lately (through no fault of their own, it's just tough to get corals these days). If you're looking for coral then you may have to look at other towns. Budman has an operation out of his garage in Montgomery with a bunch of great stuff, and then [email protected] has a great setup in Huntsville (though I've only ever ordered online from him).

I don't know how I missed this thread but I've been trying to collect emails for anyone interested in connecting. So for anyone that's interested, and hasn't already sent me your info, please feel free to PM it to me. We had an initial meeting last year just a couple of weeks before COVID hit and I've been trying to at least collect emails to keep people in touch. Hopefully we can set up something up in the next few months to meet.
