Get them while they're in stock. You're welcome. :)

They have them for sale before the first shipment of new stuff (lily spin, es300) is even supposed to arrive at adg, and last I knew correct of wrong, adg got the container and in turn distributed to usa retail stores.

Actually, AFA and ADG are both ADA distributors for the US. They each order their own container of goods and sell them independently from each other.

AFA is not a regular LFS that buys its ADA products from ADG. Hence some price differences.

They can order their own container. Which is why they get products at different times of the year.

I didn't realize that lol. I thought adg was the "north american distributor of ada products".

Yeah, they're both distributors. I swear I need to move near ADG or AFA....would save me so much on shipping.

Lol I'm glad I live near adg because its always overnight shipping through ups even with just the ground option. That alongside the free shipping on some orders allows multiple items in one box for the same rate of $0 and rush shipping pretty much.

They are very worth it and if you don't be crazy they are not as fragile as one may think.

I'm personally not getting one. Even my new 12" cube is getting AquaticMagic glassware on it, lol. Only thing I'm going ADA on it are the substrate, sand and rocks....and AQUASKY, regardless of the shoddy acrylic work. :hihi: Mini M was my ADA splurge. ADA isn't the god of everything but it sure looks nice. I'm quite content with offbrand pipes/diffusers/etc. CO2 and large tank filtration? I'd honestly rather build my own rig and do a nice sump with a Mame overflow/return. Same deal with large controllable T5 fixtures vs expensive ADA MH pendants.
