Coming to Portland


Recommended Posts

Hello - My son is playing in a hockey tournament in Portland this weekend. Hoping to take home a few nice frags. Can anyone recommend a great FS in the area with good selection/quality & good prices?




PS. If anyone would be interested in selling or trading I posted a thread in the classifieds too as I would be happy to trade.

First off welcome!!


Secondly I would suggest you take a look at our sponsor forums and get the address' and phone numbers from there so you have them.


Since you said corals................ I would say Westside, Upscales, Ocean in a Box, Rose City, and Coral Mafia- but please look into all of them and hit as many as you possibly can with your free time!


PS- Are you coming back this way next summer for SEA-MAX?

I posted a reply in your classifieds thread. If we can work a deal then I'm not too far from Ocean In a Box which is a must see if your looking for nice looking corals and are in the area. In addition to those mentioned Woody down at Seahorse also usually has a few hidden gems in his cheap frags if you know what to look for.

^ Thanks guys.. Will try to visit a couple of your recommendations!


I assume "SEA-MAX" is a reef fest in the Portland area? I recently attended one in Salt Lake City (one of the benefits to spending thousands on travel hockey for my kids - I get to see lots of great stores/coral etc.. lol). Anyway, I will have to look at trying to make that trip.

I highly recommend Nick's RoseCity, it's our favorite store by far, and you have to check out SEA Max, we're finally getting one of the big reef-keeping conventions, similar to MACNA, in the PacNW, if you're a member of a club there in the Idaho area, please pass the word, there's a thread here about it, plus a big one over on I think it's reeffrontiers.
