    SeaScape aquatics 1-17-2015

    Tons of new stock in. I did spy one Marine Betta.
    Word to the wise, plan on a lengthy drip acclimation, their salinity is just south of 1.019.

    So I went there trying to locate a new bulb for my ADHI sump refugium. The "nice male owner" (sarcasm) graciously began to tell me there was no such thing as an 18w CFL 4 pin bulb and said I was wrong. See pictures
    What a tool! So instead of supporting a local business Thankful the Internet has these and want my business


    And people wonder why small businesses fail

    He is a bit abrasive. I didn't care much for him the first few times I met him honestly. After I got him to open up and start talking though he became just another guy. Everyone makes mistakes. Maybe his vendor told him the same thing at some point. It would have been a lot more amusing had you brought the bulb along and had him explain how you got it!

    ....Sharks with frickin lasers.... aiptasia lasers.

    Fully agree with both opinions. I believe that they really push for ONE supplier. This has to be the reason that they are still pushing the AquaC EV's.

    So I have a love hate relationship with seascape. I have purchased awesome corals and awesome fish for a fair price on many occasions. But I never go in thinking I'm going to get anything above an awkward experience that often leads to an annoying experience. Just remember it's all about the fish.

    Abrasive is not the "A" word that comes to mind. I get what you are say GBP. The reason I didn't have the bulb with me was I was driving by and thought I would give it a shot. A simple we don't carry it or something other than a statement that it did exist. Thought I would share my experience with the group is all. Insanity is defined doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. My bad for going in and asking

    Good catch. There are 3 checks that I always do when preparing to acclimate.
    Alk, pH and salinity. That always determins acclimation duration for me.

    That's a bummer. I work right across the street from them, but I don't go in there. I tried to buy water from them a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't get any service. So I left and went to Petco.

    I get RO/DI there weekly (It's self serve btw). Have bought most of my fish and CUC there with little to no acclimation. Never had any issues. The folks are a little hard to deal with... til you get to know them a little.

    The more I go in there the friendlier the guy gets. I barely buy anything either, I just like to look at their tanks lol. I do miss the other lady that used to work there. Their tanks look pretty good and they have a nice variety of fresh and salt fish. They are more fish people than people people. Their store is nice and also clean. I'd rather learn how to get along with the Seascape people then mess with a store like Valley Pets.

    I get it. But, I can see why small business owners can come across like this. I have been in there many times when someone will come in asking for some obscure item and Jim will say "I can get it for you". Then it is a question of when and how much. Usually it is going to take at least a week and it is going to be more than you can find it online. Now everyone says they want to support local businesses but that is usually only true because of convenience. I understand your frustration but I can't even imagine his.
