Aquatropics off 395 in Kennewick is about the only other place, but we tend to go to Spokane, Seattle, or go mail order.  The stuff over there is not in the greatest shape, and is usually way overpriced.

As for Amazon Bay, Eric sold, new owners didn't have a good grasp on what they were going to need to do, and went under nearly immediately.

OK thanks..  No good LFSs in Yakima?

Looks like I'll have to make a trip west in a month or two..
Are Aquarium paradise in Lakewood and Midway Pet still good stores on the west side?

I used to go with them when I lived in Gig Harbor.

What's good in Spokane?

There are no good shops in Yakima AT THE MOMENT, but soon the new owner of Pet Paradise (now Pet Pantry) will soon be selling corals and saltwater fish. She is just now setting up a display tank. She just needs to get her hands on another tank so she can have a tank to store saltwater fish.

As for a place to go now there is a pretty good store in Spokane with awesome prices for corals. The store name is the Saltwater reef of Spokane a here is a link of it from yellowpages, http://www.yellowpages.com/name/Spokane-WA/reef

If you can get to Portland they have some of the best stores that I have ever been to.

Hope that helps.   
135 gallon 6 foot reef tank packed with some amazing fish and coral and a red sea max 250 in the works and a little 30 gallon clam tank just for the heck of it.

This response might be a little late.

I unfortuneatly always forget the names of the pet stores.  I usually use yellowpages to remember their names.

Sorry I can't more help.

Nate is Correct both of these stores can't be beat for selection you will have just a perfect smorgasboard of coral and live stock to cherry pick from. Another little hole in the wall kind of close to us is City Zoo Pets & SuppliesCity Zoo Pets & Supplies
2304 Eastgate St
Walla Walla, WA 99362

call before you make the trip they have only about 14 salt water tanks and this is older info I haven't been to the store in a long time If Kyle see's this he might have some better info..

I'll second that.  Kevin's shop has a lot of good stuff, and he's a great guy with a lot of knowledge.
