    Hello R2R! We are here to make a enormous announcement! Get your engines started! Here comes our Megastore thread!

    World Wide Corals new Aquarium Superstore across from Sea World is currently under construction!

    Our new South Orlando Location will be a state of the art "MEGA" Retail Store and will replace our current WWC OG location sometime later this year.

    We have been waiting more than a decade for this! It has been a long time coming and we can't tell you how excited we are to finally make this happen :) We kept plugging along for going on 12 plus years, dreaming for this day and that day is finally close at hand.

    We really hope to make our Superstore a Reefing Mecca! A place where one can lose themselves for awhile and gaze at tank after tank of beautiful corals, healthy fish and lively inverts.

    We truly look forward to sharing our vision of what we believe is the future of the reefing hobby with you! So please come on down to Orlando once we open and enjoy this labor of love with us as soon as possible :)

    This is a busy time for us, so please follow along as we have embarked on building out 2 new WWC locations simultaneously!

    Our 2nd Winter Park Retail Store build-out is going strong and will finished out sometime this summer. Please click on the following link to this thread for more details.

    Looks amazing so far and the plans show that it's going to be stunning.
    How many total gallons of water are you estimating?
