I have a love-hate thing for RMS. I'll go nowhere else but there when it comes to healthy fish. Every fish I've gotten from there is still alive after a couple ich attacks and a bout with fungus.
But when it comes to hardware, they want your first born for typical stuff you can find just about anywhere else. Then it's time to stop in at Dave's...aka Something Fishy Inc. He's got the good stuff for a respectable price.
The longer I'm involved in this hobby the more & more I'm convinced that Bio-Type species tanks are the way to go. Plants and fish/inverts live together in nature for a reason. I find the less I try to fight nature the better my tanks look.
