On April 5, Magic Isle Pet Store in Centerreach had a destructive fire that killed animals and put the business out of operation. The store has been a long time source of fish and advice for many in our hobby and many know Joe Carpinone personally.
Our sympathies go out to Joe and his family and we hope they recover and rebuild soon. If you would like to contribute to a GoFundMe campaign on behalf of the store, go to: https://www.gofundme.com/help-magic-isle-rebuild

West onto South Drive off of Nicolls Road (County Rd 97). At the light, make a right onto Marburger Drive and then make the next right (the street has no name but there are signs indicating that you are near the Marine Sciences buildings). Follow the road all the way to the back and you will see three buildings - Discovery, Challenger and Endeavour – the last one is Endeavour Hall.
