First and foremost, I hope everyone is well and safe during these trying times. I would like to assure you that I am taking every precaution to insure the health of you, the customer. I am being extra diligent about cleanliness and will closely monitor myself for any sign of illness. As a result, my online frag, equipment, and gear stores will remain open. To help you potentially save money during the crisis I have compiled 5 Money Saving Reef Tank Tips. This is also a great time to enroll in my online Reef Keeping Master Class. Many thanks for the continued support!
