    How would you rate their pricing; Is it competitive?

    Can it get any better than FREE aiptasia????????






    And FWIW - it's just as well that I live in Ohio. If I was close enough to a place like that I'd be flat broke. Happy, but broke nonetheless!

    Nice store, great pics... Definitely a good reason to go to Orlando for Corals shopping, only 1 1/2 hours away from Tampa.

    What are you talking about?
    We have Live Aquaria, Bestfish, Battle corals and Boom corals etc..
    It may not be on that scale but we are not deprived either, it could be allot worse like some other places.

    ik what you mean. luckily the only LFS near me who doesn't take a clean system seriously is a Pet Supplies Plus (or named similar to it.) its very similar to a pet co, but better at times.

    Never visited battle corals, it is on my list to do. I have visited boom corals back when matt still owned it. Haven't dealt with quinn yet.

    I love @TopShelfAquatics my go to LFS. Selection of corals, fish, and equipment are top notch. Prices are competitive and are always willing to work with you. The staff and ownership are amazing everyone is knowledgeable and friendly. I can’t say enough good things.

    Amazing. Love the videos I’ve seen of this place. Tanks are amazing and the store looks well organized and clean. Great job. Wish y’all were just a little closer to SE Texas.
