First, i went to saltwater city and that place is amazing. Best LFS ive been to yet in the puget sound. Second, I ended up with two snails, a crab and a gorgeous fire shrimp. Might get another shrimp at some point because i already love them. But when it is time for coral, i will definitely go back to saltwater city and give them tons of money. Their stuff is gorgeous.

They are a great store and there are 2 others within a few block radius...

Seattle corals
Seaking

Then if you take a small drive there is Barrier Reef in Renton.
I have never been, but if you want to see the absolute high end FIRE then swing by cuttlefish in PDX.

Crazy nice.

Jeff is amazing and does a great job, the store is legit....honestly as good as WWC in Orlando, not their new mega store but the OG store that started it all.

Clean open and full at the same time. Always fire at a great price and their auctions are a blast to do.

All of my fish are from Saltwater City, it’s a great shop. I’ve purchased several corals from SeaKing and again, great shop with really good prices. Just got a couple of peppermint shrimp from Seattle Corals and that place looks well run as well. Add in Barrier Reef and we have a lot of quality shops in our area.

Im just south of Seattle, For coral i go to Seattle coral or seaking. Fish i go saltwater city or barrier reef. Barrier seems to have good coral but they charge a premium for it. I have found a couple of good deals on coral at Sierra in renton but definitely gotta do a good dip on their stuff

That place is a little scary but last time I was in there they had cleaned up better than I’d ever seen it.

oooh. I do love me a fish store with a dipping recommendation. LOL
Lol but honestly all fish stores are infested. I can’t remember a time when I’ve been to barrier and not seen a half dozen dieing or dead fish. Even my clowns had parasites and they are captive bred. One of the newer fish shops once posted a bunch of glam shots of frags with red bugs all over, so if you are buying in store you better have a very robust QT process. A simple dip won’t cut it.
