yes he does. He's a bit more expensive, but great
Looking fish, they get QT'd, plus all the advice locally I ever need. He even assembled my
Reef octopus free for me

For a quality fish store, i would gladly pay the few extra pennies to support him. We need more fish stores like this so we can do away with all the petsmarts, petco's and other chain stores, most of which dont have a clue what they are doing and pass around crappy advice to make more profit.

ABSOLUTELY Schism! This guy puts his heart
and soul into a tiny little shop. He's out doing a service routine all day, and then is open during the night from 5-8, and then days on the weekends. Will only do what's best for the customer, it's impressive actually, quite.

+++++1 sadly even the mom and pop shops when begin making money try to replicate the large chain store business plan and lose their quality due to their success... Not saying this is always true but seen it happen all to much, hard to keep a balance I guess : /

Yeah true, their are those guys too. Its funny because i know a few great fish stores that overcome the money problem by cultivating corals and selling frags. Most big chains wont do this and simply buy wholesale corals and sell them for larger profit.

Aquaculture has little overhead costs and lots of profit and really is were the little guys stand out above the rest. Top quality service and support also get customers coming back over and over. Ive even had fish stores owners give me free stuff because of how much i support them and refer fellow reefers to them. These are the kinda guys you do business with.
