Overall
Barrier reef does have a great...

Barrier reef does have a great selection..on the negative side they will tell you anything you want to hear so you'll buy a system..although I believe they have some very knowledgeable people on board you must do your own research before you decide to purchase. Know that to do a saltwater tank correctly (without killing everything but the fish) it is a huge investment there is no way around it..otherwise your system will be a failure..the staff will not tell you this <br> <br>I also find the sales staff very unfriendly..it seems I am a bother to them when I need something..an example i called to get pricing and availablity on Hamilton Metal Halide T5 system..I could tell it was too much a bother to get the info, odd too as the lighting is over $1000.00..I unfortunately will not buy from them again.

Overall
Good for Overall Supplies

The store has a pretty good selection of supplies, tanks, and fish. <br>Prices are consistant with other stores, but high compared to internet stores. <br>My biggest complaint is that the livestock at this store is pretty bad. Every fish I bought from this store has died. I thought it was just my tank, but livestock from other stores has lived in my tank for years just fine. I believe that the problem lies in the fast rate of turnover, as well as whichever wholesaler they are purchasing from . They do a lot of volume, so fish don't have much time to recoup before being sold. I will certainly never buy another fish from this store again, which is sad, b/c their selection is pretty good. <br>HOWEVER, their coral selection and quality is just fine. I've had much success with their coral. <br> <br>Overall, the staff is pretty friendly.

Overall
a great aquairium store

if you are a serious hobbyist, or love saltwater tropicals, i know of no better place to bring your business. they have been in business in the same location for the over 25 years ive lived here. never had a problem with sick or diseased specimens, and have always found any supplies ive needed here. one of the biggest live rock inventories ive seen as well.
