Indeed, I will make a trip myself this week. Last time I was there I notice they have CFL bulbs to replace my Corallife unit. The light is amazing for growing house plants and the bulbs are hard to find!
Think its just a rumor floating around for some years now due to Quincys development plans, but I think the last convo I had with Steve he said they were not moving anytime soon. They had that on their website too, so I'd be surprised if that has changed.
Curious for some more detail since I had the opposite experience.
I went to European Aquatics yesterday for the first time and had a great experience. Me and the owner, Martin, talked reefing for at least a half hour. You can tell he is knowledgable and passionate. He was excited to show me the work they are doing in the back room since he will be expanding with a ton more space.
Nice zoo collection: most of them are $5 polyp. Picked up an orange plate and a few zoo frags, all corals were happy in my tank within a few hours.
I would like to share my experience with the store that is quite different from many of the other reviews. I believe prices are reasonable. I was a frequent supporter and purchaser at the store for a few months. I was having trouble with my tank and Marty suggested I upgrade to a125. We agreed on pricing and timeframe. Unfortunately the install changed from January to mid January eventually weeks turned to months. And by April I still had not had the installation done. I knew being a small business Marty needed some cash so I paid $600 in advance for the tank And stand and a $150 for corals and fish. Then the final straw. He changed the agreed on price up 1000+ dollars. All the while I had been changing my work schedule to accommodate him. There were numerous days I would take off because he was coming to install the tank. Only later find out by noon time it wasn't ready. I lost thousands of dollars in potential overtime and lost productivity myself. So a couple of weeks ago I did what anybody else would do canceled and asked for a refund. I was still willing to be a customer because I felt that Marty is a good guy he just bit off more than he could chew. However the last straw was when he blamed me For leaving him in a bad spot. He took very little responsibility And it was his inability to meet his own deadlines and prices that cost him the job. I received a refund and a few item must to make up for what I had spent. But I will never again be a customer of European aquatics.
What really upset me is the owner still was upset with me because he ordered items I didn't accept. He needs to take responsibility for his inaction.
Butchy21 I believe I walked in as you were wrapping up. you could probably feel the tension however I wanted to be made whole.
