Hi there! I just moved here from Chicago and am encouraged to find helpful forums here.

I've been in the hobby for the last six years but switched to saltwater reefs at the beginning of 2012.

Currently only running my little 14g reef that somehow managed the move without any casualties. Now that I'm settled I'm in the market for a new tank. (always...)

Thanks everyone. I'm happy to be here. Looking for a good LFS. Any recommendations?

My advise about LFS is visit them and make your own deduction. We have Petco on north powers - they have a real nice saltwater section. At Academy and Union is Seascape Aquatics - Good clean store, nice selection of fish. On Fillmore near I-25 is Mr Aqua - They are hit or miss on livestock, eager to help out with issues. Watch their prices. Down on the south end ( in Widefield) is Valley Pets - they have all types of pets and it shows. I don't get down there much.
If you are looking for corals - we have two very good sponsors that have great selection and pricing. Reefkoi corals in Peyton is the master when it comes to very nice specimens. Coralxpressions on South Marksheffle road has a good turn around of corals and fish. He is also willing to special order and is always putting together group buys for the club.
Also if you are looking for something specific. Post it up. The members here all have very nice corals and are usually willing to share with other members. Or at least let a frag go for way less than retail.

Wow, hooked, that is quite the detailed list. I'm very thankful! I think I should spend tomorrow visiting them.

There is also My reef to yours in Pueblo for corals, and if you have some time on a Saturday hit up all the lfs in Denver.
