All im gonna say is this.

Search this site for aquacon and you should find plenty of advice. Regretfully all of its not that great.

I live in Fort lauderdale, very close to Aquacon. They recently moved their retail store to a bigger location. I never bought anything from their first store and after visiting their new store, would still never purchase from them. It appears they spend most of their money on the appearance of their web site. The fish don't look as well in person, by a long shot. poor fish.

I recently ordered a SmartLite retro kit from them. It was priced well, arrived quickly. My only complaint was their lack of an automated ship notification / confirmation. I had to e-mail them to find out when they would ship my light, and they didn't provide a tracking number.

I visited their store twice and left emptyhanded twice.
There was another thread at another forum discussing how they use other peoples pictures without permission on their website.
Nothing in their store looks good and I can just image the disappointment of someone ordering off of their website and receiving the junk they have in the store.....
Unfriendly and unhelpful too.

I'm guessing they won't be sponsoring AA anytime soon.
