    Hello everybody,

    I just moved to Putnam from NH and need to get to a LFS. Just wondering if any of you have any recommendations that you you like or know of any that are near me (I know not every business is on google all the time, back in NH my LFS was somebody's basement LOL).

    Thanks!

    Ocean State Aquatics in Coventry, RI is one of my favorites and the closest for me (I live in Sterling). There is also Shoreline Pet in Old Saybrook and Aquatic Wildlife in Manchester

    You're going to drive a bit from where you are located, unfortunately.

    But like everyone said.

    OSA in RI
    Shoreline in Old Saybrook CT
    Colchester Pet in Colchester CT (although I've never been and don't know their selection)
    Wet Pets in Vernon CT
    School of Fish in Indian Orchard, MA
    Aquatic Wildlife in Manchester CT
    Exotic Fish and Coral in Milford, CT

    And actually, before I list anymore, there is another thread in this forum where someone made a list of all of our sponsors. If you look at that, it will show you on the map where most of the stores are.

    Alot of people will plan a "day trip" to visit multiple stores in one day to make the drive worth it.

    Hey Mitchell welcome to Connecticut. I'm going to whisper this if you're looking for just some basic stuff there's also a Petco in Killingly. What kind of tank you have?

    Thanks guys, I have been traveling to OSA mostly, I tried Krystal clear but they didn't have the coral variety I was looking for that OSA has.

    I live in putnam as well. Most of my corals i buy from world wide corals just because there really isnt much around here.. you could try wet pets in Vernon they have a good selection although i havent bought any from them yet.
