If you’re traveling long distances to get to an aquarium show, why not spend a few extra moments hitting up random fish stores along the way? Chances are, the fish stores in your native area are going to be far different than those the next few towns over. And who knows, they might have something you’ve never seen before and maybe even something you just can’t live without. Unfortunately, there is an issue if you do find something you like. You obviously won’t want to take it with you, as you’re probably going to be on the road for a while and might be a couple of days away from your aquarium. Thankfully, many stores are open to letting you purchase it and pick it up on the return trip home. You just have to remember to pick up your new fish or coral.
