I missed the boat with this info and accidentally ordered something from them two days ago from their website and have found it impossible to get in touch with anyone regarding the order. I've emailed Frank and Jeff, and even spoke with an answering service that they have setup yet nobody has gotten back to me. Are they completely out of business? Are they still processing online orders or did they fall off the map completely?

There still in business AFAIK. It may take them some time to get back to you but when I called them Jeff got back to me right away. I was very happy with their services.

Thanks for the response ua hua. I hope they get back to me. I've purchased a lot of equipment from them in the past and had been satisfied with their response time on inquiries and with the overall way they handled orders. So, I wasn't expecting the current lag in communication between them and the consumer. Maybe I got them during a bad week. I'll be more patient.

Not sure about their own product like. But AquaTop's folks told me they planned to carry their tanks. Based on their Facebook photos, that appears to be the case.

Wish they could work on a comparable, more affordable substrate alternative to Aquasoil but definitely don't see that coming any time soon. They've been using Brightwell in some of their status updates, as well.

Jeff told me a few years ago that they already used a lot of Brightwell products and really like them.

Looks like they might be carrying the Natural Aquario line now.

At least judging from the teaser pic they put on Facebook last night.

NA seems to be a direct ADA knock off, pretty darn close.

I'd even argue that some of the stuff looks a little nicer, but I don't know the price point yet so it's hard to say for sure. The stands in particular look really nice and I'm a fan of SS pipes over glass. Maybe that's because I have 3 little ones and the glass makes me nervous.

Yes, I'm thinking the exact same things here.
Soil is the big one and the SS pipes are good/better for most, just more work to clean and easier to break for the glass.
Stands look nice with better storage etc.

Light rails and it seems they have more lamping options, newer tech than ADA.
Kessil have impressed me lately for LED's.

I know ADG uses a fair amount of LED for reefs, but it's always a test using them with planted tanks. If kessil did like one of their 360's for plants, I think they would be ideal for a pendent style.

I wonder if this is why ADA cut them off? I thought they were doing their own line.

It seems strange that AFA carries a variety of other brands though as well. I believe Archaea is AFA's own brand as well. I don't want to speculate on ADG, I just wonder if they moved on to NA for other reasons.

That said, I am excited to see where this goes. Though I have heard their tanks are not quite as nice as ADA, I have heard most their other stuff is really nice, some better than ADA. Since they have very similar sized tanks to ADA, I see a lot of overlap on equipment. Unfortunately, they don't look to have a 60CM tank or list a stand for their 65CM tank.
