    Bobby has been an asset to our club and always ran a great store. [​IMG]

    That's a bummer. One of the only shops in the area. Had some good reef related conversations with Bobby, over the past year and a half. Hope to stay in touch.

    I'm still tankless, but this is unfortunate to hear. His coral prices were reasonable, and if you got there around delivery day, you could get nice stuff. So now it's just Pete's, or take a road trip north or south?

    Wish him the best of luck though, LFS is a tough business. Wonder what his full-time career is.

    No. Sorry. I sort of regret that comment of mine. Should not have posted it.
    But I did, & he is a scumbag.

    Couldn’t stand any sort of sympathy showed towards him.

    His business ended the way he treated it & his customers.

    I didn’t really shop here but he was well known and respected in this community. If you have such strong harsh words about him you should be very very clear with your intentions

    Didn’t have any intentions. Just saw the post & couldn’t stand the sympathy showed towards him.
    It’s my opinion & experience with him.
    Sorry if I offended anyone who thinks that they “know” him.
