I am impressed with them. I had previously been a Fluval user. I ordered an Aquatop to try and found lthen eaps & bounds easier to prime and startup. Plus big media trays. I recommend them.

Yup! Right now only afternoon/evenings during the week & all day on the weekends. Hired my first employees & they started last weekend. Once the rest of the tanks arrive (hopefully this week) I will extend the hours.

Wow !!!! Nice to hear that you've finally opened the door ! What was the first item purchased from the store? Who did you end up hiring ? Sorry lots f questions but it's kind f exciting to watch the progress ,..I take it you're still working full time at your regular job at this time.
