What would you like to see?

Southern Oak Aquatics is dedicated to making all of our lives easier when it comes to planted and shrimp tanks.

That said, we're looking for your opinions on what to carry next. What have you been having trouble finding? What would you like to see available at a reasonable price?

We want your input on the direction S.Oak should take next, so fire away!

Thanks everyone.

Aqua Inspiration

I'd like to see you carry the "In-out stainless steel pipe with skimmer" SSPWS and maybe the stainless steel diffusers. Aqua Inspiration carries these but they currently do not have any distributors in this country.

I emailed them yesterday, but haven't gotten a response yet. I don't think they actually make those themselves. A lot of the things they carry are Chinese imports, like the Netlea soils and the SS diffusers. I'll let you know what I find out from them. If they respond to me.

I'd like to see a site sponsor become a Mr. Aqua distributor that is completive with Marine Depot.

I try my best to support the site sponsors.

Honestly? 12" glass spraybar attachment. That would make me sooo happy.

This is already on our radar. Probably within the next month or 2.

I agree. I'm not having any luck finding anyone who makes them, and getting them made wouldn't be much easier. Already spent a couple months trying to find someone to make lily pipes and intakes with no luck.

I'd love to see a stainless skimmer(by itself) that wasn't the 234232 dollar ada version. one that could attach to another system would be nice.

But that skimmer/pipe is really sexy. If you could carry netlea....

Aqua Inspiration Stainless Steel Surface Skimmer

Finally got these from Aqua Inspiration yesterday. They're really heavy, built like a tank.
