The owner I met when I went there was very nice on the telephone and in person. I wish them nothing but success and will support them with my business whenever I can.

I had called them about shipping ADA tanks, the person I spoke to on the phone was really nice, he said they will get back to me with a quote for an ADA 45-F. Its been two weeks and I havent heard back at all.
If they are willing to ship I will be happy to give them my money.

Very nice store. I just came back with a new 60-P tank along with 6 bags of soil (africana and amazonia).

If you have a chance be sure to check them out. Good plant selection too.

I wish I had room for another tank!

How do the sizes translate from ADA to US standard?

Convert the centimeters to inches in google by googling this term: "60 cm to inches". Google will do it automatically so you don't even have to click on a site or calculator.

When a tank is 60-P, for example, that means that it's 60 cm long. 90-P is 90 cm long etc. This should give you a nice gauge.

I figured as much, but what I mean is- how does it translate as far as number of gallons?

Thanks,

Alfred

A really quick google search for "ADA 60P" gets you the dimensions: 24x12x14

Does this place have any of the ADA style rocks? I'm looking for maten-seki stone in particular.

Wow, just saw this. This is going to be very expensive for me...I can tell already!

Anyone seen their plant selection lately? Looking for maybe Stauro or some other types of ground cover to test out in my tank. Maybe pick up a school of some sort of tetras while I'm at it.

I dropped by there on Tuesday, and again today. Plan on stopping in more often.

I picked up some driftwood, and plan on purchasing some substrates and sand as I start to plan a new project.

Very nice selection of smaller ADA aquariums, and seem willing to order larger aquariums for those who are interested. I was quite impressed with the stainless steel stands that they use.

Plenty of ADA tools and Do!Aqua items as well.

Both owners are friendly. I spent a little time this afternoon talking aquascaping and placing some stones with John. Very nice guy with an interesting style of aquascape.

If you are in the area and ready for an ADA or Do!Aqua aquarium or want some ADA substrate this is the place. No shipping. No waiting. No hassles or breakage. Put it in your car and drive it home.

Totally agree with you Momotaro. I was there a few times, first time being when they first opened. They have definitely added to the place since the summer. And yes, those guys are really cool. I definitely like buying my plants there. I usually go to the back area.....that's where the lower light plants are. Very healthy plants and great prices to boot. I love their display tanks.....VERY nice looking and well taken care of!

John and Peter always take care of me and ive brought a few car loads of folks there already. I ll always make a point to stop there to pick up odds and ends. I'm learning towards getting a cube tank from there one day...

Me and my boyfriend went there today, really love this place! We live in Wayne so it was only about 15-20 minute ride! It's in a great area lots of shops, restaurants and such! Very well kept shop, all Healy tanks you can tell they really care and know they're stuff. All they're plants look healthy and so the shrimp and some fish they carry. They have tons of ada and do aqua supplies, they also carry ada stones and soils. I ended up purchasing a do aqua tank, archaea light, Amazonia soil, some ada rocks, plants, and an ada thermometer. Can't wait to go back
