That is the one I was referring to also. I have started avoiding them now just because of the bad advice. They told me that a fluval 304 is all I would need for a 125g tank, and they said that LR is a bad idea that does not work.

Try Wholesale Florist of Huntsville, they are behind Joe Davis Stadium (3120 Leeman Ferry Road ). I have had very good luck there (but I still buy most things online).

thanks patriot.. I will check them out. Do they have most of the stuff the aquarium shop has? I am going to be buying 2 powerheads and some stuff to make my sump, but I really don't want to go back to the aquarium shop if I can help it. I don't like buying stuff online. I actually got burned a couple of times.

Tinman - They do not have anywhere the amount of dry goods that the aquarium shop has. They have much more livestock and good advice.
