    Good Corona fish stores?

    Good Morning Everyone! I'm heading to Corona today with my wife. She has a CPR class all day and I was looking for aquarium stores or anything fish related to visit. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Jacobs Nursery is kinda close to corona. He's a youtuber. I think the place is only open 1 day a week though.

    Nothing good in Corona, unfortunately. The whole Inland Empire is a desert for good aquarium stores.

    Elliott's in Riverside is ths only thing remotely decent in riverside, but very underwhelming. Good for the "i want to shop independent and just get some of the very basics."

    I have been in/around Elliotís for 20 years. I may occasionally buy a heater or something from them, but I canít recommend them for fish or plants. They have terrible health and husbandry practices.

    Great place for dog food, though!

    They have the best price on the external hanging breeder box. It is powered by an air pump, and i love using it to acclimate corals and keep new fish from getting their butts kicked

    I beg to differ, Amazon has the best prices for the hang on breeder boxes. I got 3 of the medium ones for $22.

    I actually think they are 13 at elliott's. It has certainly been a while, but the price was shocking.

    I got a large marina hob breeder from there for about $4. I think they mislabeled it.

    Aw man. I used to go to their shops since I was a lad. Used to be E&Mís then they got shut down for black market animals. Owners got divorced and the ex-wife opened Fish Fantasy with some of the same employees. I was good friends with their son too. It sucks to hear this, I hope theyíre alright.
