Who's all in the Springfield area.
I'm in Decatur but there's nothing left around here in the way of saltwater livestock pet stores. I order all my livestock online. Fish Man is a shadow of what it used to be and I had a bad experience with Nature's Select. Sailfin in Champaign is a decent store but it's an hour away and prices are top dollar on everything.

I fully understand the challenge of finding a good LFS near you. Thanks to sfin52, he provided me with a few good places in St. Louis which is only an 1 1/2 from Springfield. I was hesitant but it was worth the drive as they have a good selection of corals and saltwater fish. It is nice to see them in person so you can observe their health and talk with some knowledgeable staff.
