    Once I know the exact thing I want (model number ,type) I go online and try to get the cheaper one. No loyalty to one group or store only...

    I really like BRS as well, but shop Amazon too especially if I need something Prime fast and cannot wait the 5-7 day free ship at BRS.

    BRS, saltwater aquariums, marine depot, and Drs. Foster and Smith are who I regularly use and have been very please with both quality and service.

    I think it depends on what you are looking for. BRS and Marine Depot have the largest variety of gear and both have info videos on equipment and methods of doing things. Some of the smaller stores; Salty Supply, Aqua Cave, etc, may not have as much variety but are also good to find not so common bits and pieces too. Look through the site sponsors and bookmark a bunch.

    I check everyone. After all they pretty much sell the same products. I lean more to who gives the best service and the best price. Most of the time I stick with Dr. Foster & Smith. They give great service and if you get on their mailing list you can get discounts up to 25% and sometimes more on flash sells.

    Premium Aquatics!!
    Premium Aquatics, if I'm not mistaken, has been around about the longest (1996) and has always specialized has in reef tank supply. They have provided me with great service throughout! They also have some killer sales from time to time. BRS is good too but in my experience has the slowest free shipping as compared to Marine depot and Premium Aquatics.

    For me was BRS, until they refused and cancel my last order without any reason. Now I buy all my stuff on premiumaquatics, they are the best!

    BRS is great not only for prices but their customer service is great too. Any time I've had an issue they make it right. I'm a hard customer to deal with sometimes too and they are kind and appreciative no matter what. Plus they make videos that help a ton! Much respect for BRS.

    If you are starting out and need to purchase several pieces of equipment , I would suggest Premium Aquatics as they have given me deals on large purchases. Suggest contacting them with a list and see what they will do for you.

    it is because of our sponsors, this group is large and strong. I would look at them first and sign up for their newsletters and keep track of daily/weekly specials, points and incentives they frequently offer
