I think you spelled broke wrong! Lol
I think I love the perfect distance away as it’s an hour if no traffic away.
lol, no I meant to say nuts. dont know if thats just something we say in my family, but it means to go crazy over something. :) man you live the PERFECT distance from it! haha!

Hello R2R! We are here to make an enormous announcement! Get ready! 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.

Me love it. ... me love it.......
1984 Fountain Valley, Callyfornia. Had a LRS, the name I forgot.
But, what I'll never forget is the tank layout. Fresh on one side , salt the other side.
I always went to SW side. When going to the saltwater side, it was designed as if in a museum. It felt like in the Louvre Museum, France.
Never seen anything like it again.

Here is a quick walkthrough animation for you guys of the 3D Render we did for the store.

The guy in the hat and glasses looks shady. Better keep an eye on him. :cool:

Ok, I just gotta ask......What do the main power panels look like for a store using this much electricity? How many amps do you estimate this facility will consume? I'm guessing the all LED lighting helps a bit to keep the number down but just curious.

Not sure of the total amperage but here are some shots of the electrical powering the building. Some existing panels from CVS before us and some new.
