    It's a good store. A lot of their items I was finding cheaper than online prices. They have gotten some mexican turbo snails and saltwater fish in. I think clean up crews are next and then corals. They also seemed open to ordering things that they didn't have. Looks like a great place.

    yup if you are interested in anything let the owner know amd he will order it for you or look into it. I talked to him about stocking reef nutrition products and he said he will be in the future.

    I would love to be able to check them out but every time I have tried to stop and check it out they are closed. I realize they have another store in Burlington but I went there today to try to buy a test kit and see their saltwater section and they were only open from 11-5 today and closed tomorrow. And I think if I read it right I think it is most days 11-5 and I think a couple of extra hours on the weekend.

    It looks like they are open 10-7 during the week and 11 to 5 on the weekend. Tuesdays they are closed but that will be changing in the future.
