    Reef Pets will be closed until further notice.

    Several hobbyist purchased Alkatronic from me through Reef2Reef. The closure will no effect the shipping or delivery time of those units. Eric and I have been working on the logistics of shipping. They should ship within the next 24 hours to me and my turn around time will be 24 hours or less from when I receive them.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    That's sad to hear. You have been around a long time. Care to share the reason?

    A fellow r2r’er and I posited it might be due to a crash?

    There was a fire at the shop. I have a lot of rebuilding to do.
    The shop will be closed for a good while. I’ll get online going as soon as possible.

    Man, that’s just awful!
    I know you’re the type of guy that has home systems, but did you move your livestock into the new shop before the fire?
    I know you were setting up a row of 40 breeders, and they looked awesome; really sorry to hear this, Gary

    Thanks everyone! The clean up process started today.

    Looks like it will be a little while but I’ll get things up and going again ASAP.

    Thanks for your support!
