i got a lfs near me and they have giant circular reef aquarium which holds 2 white tip sharks. pretty cool. not for sale though i don't think. they also have a moray eel, as well as some stingrays, didn't give a species name though, they had just got there and weren't for sale yet

edit: spelling

An LFS near my home that is run by a privately owned store (vs. PetCo or Pet Smart) Has an Arrowanna. It's scary looking but cool.
