    Looking for recommendations

    So I'm looking for recommendations on a place to get a new aquarium once i sell almost everything I have.. Aquatic Arts has played a big role in this decision as my wife has fallen in love with their display tanks... Thanks guys...

    Aquatic Art can get you a tank.
    Jim with Pidaz has tanks.
    And, ReefKoi Corals is opening a new store that will be selling tanks

    Aquatic Arts has tanks I like but I have no way to haul... I'm gonna check out the reefkoi when they open in in a few weeks.. I like the concepts with bio cube, jbj, and Red Sea Max... Red Sea makes the bigger tanks like that just need something bigger than my M130D (34g Red Sea Max) for what I want to do

    I personally plan on getting my 84 from Pidaz. They are local here to the springs and Jim is really easy to work with. He goes out of his way to take care of you.. His only real fault is he is an Ohio State fan... Lol

    Like I said the all in one systems are better suited for me as my wife is a noob and still learning lol... I don't wanna discourage her from the hobby as she lets me spend whatever I want as long as once in a while she gets to pick something out and has to take care of the tank when I'm in the field or whatever the Army decides

    Not sure if you are still looking but I recently got my wife an all in one Red Sea Nano Tank All in one at Aquatic Arts and we are very happy with it. I was in the same position you are in. My wife really wanted to enjoy the hobby with me and so she wanted her own tank she could take care of and put her personal touch to. Hope you found what you were looking for and if not, hope this helped.

    Happy Reefing!!!
