Aquacon.com Should I buy from them?

Anyone heard of this company before, or had any experience with them?

Prices are cheap and corals look good, but they seem too good to be to true, so I'm wary of ordering from them.

If anyone has heard anything about these guys, or has any first-hand experience, I'd really appreciate any information/input.

Thanks

P.S.
With a name like Aquacon, it doesn't help with consumer confidence.

I just checked them out. Prices are ok. I just ordered close to $800 of corals from fishsupply.com and they came in today. WOW 8O I was impressed. I had ordered dry goods but figured I would try out their livestock. Their prices are better than aquacon. I will try to post some pics of their corals in a little bit. Tell them you want the Brian corals I spoke with the guy several times. I told him with the quality of the stuff I got I would refer him.

I have had nothing but bad experiences with aquacon, my husband bought 200.00 worth of fish from them for my bday and all but one blue chromis and the six line wrasse died quite fast. I went through the hassle of mailing them the tails of dead fish, packed in salt and they would not honor the guarantee. Not only that, my husband paid for a large naso and we got barely a medium.

Everything in the pictures came from them. Mushrooms, sun polyps, cleaners.
