Hello all,
I'm moving to Naperville in two-and-a-half weeks. I'm not sure if I'd be better suited for this club, the CMAS club, or the Joliet Area club. I'm reaching out to see which I'd be better suited geographically.

Thanks!

I live in Naperville myself. Welcome to the community. Both Reefwise and Blue Line Coral are good LFS's in the area.
I lurk in several clubs as well as Chicagoreefs.com. None are as active as R2R or Reefcentral from a forum perspective. CMAS has events a couple times a year.

I'm in the Western suburbs as well, and wouldn't mind having a close(r) to home reef club. For LFS, I also like Pro-reef in Glen Ellyn.

Ever been to the reefgeeks in OakBrook ?
I’ve never been
Also Oceans Reef in Roselle is a new one I’ve never been too

Negative - but I should certainly check them both out. I was a big fan of Aqua Pros when I was getting the tank setup because they were very helpful with getting my parameters in order. Went to Petland to start - big mistake!

I usually go to the OddLot in Bridgeview stay away from the shops in the further south suburbs like the ones in Orland or Tinley very overpriced and terrible/rude service

Thanks for the recommendations all!

I've been to both Blue Line Coral and Gingerbread, I'm a fan of both!
I've also visited Aquarium Adventure over by the Ikea in Downers Grove(?) and I like them as well. (I actually purchased my tank/stand at a Petland in Pensacola, FL).
