Any local stores carry Nanocube?

Anyone know of any local NJ stores that carry the JBJ 24 gallon Nanocubes? Only place I knew of (Reef Encounters) no longer carries them because they got too many complaints about the older ones but the new 2006 models are supposed to have thicker glass. Anyway, if anyone knows of a place that may have them, let me know. Thanks! =)

Can you order a new one from them?

Yeah I probably could've but I was trying to find someplace local so I could save on the shipping cost. Shipping a 50+ pound tank isn't cheap! =) And I didn't want to wait a week for it to arrive either.

I could have also gotten it online from a place like nanocustoms but again, wanted to save on shipping plus they didn't have the regular cabinet stand in stock.

So wound up driving 20 miles over to Flushing last night to Fishtown-USA. They had the new tanks, the cabinet stand, and even the hard to find 6500K bulbs that they swapped in for me instead of the standard 50/50 for saltwater tanks. Good store even though I had to pay NY taxes. ;-p

Good! Glad you found it!

Let me get this straight, Reef Encounter was going to charge you for the nanocube shipping?

Oh! Sorry no, I misunderstood you. Reef Encounters were no longer going to carry the 24 gal Nanocube, period. At least that was the impression I got from the guy I spoke with. Said there was too many complaints about them. They did have one of the 24 gal CurrentUSA Aquapods but they had just sold it and he wasn't sure when they were going to get anymore (they had to negotiate with CurrentUSA or something like that) so I had to look elsewhere. Sorry for the confusion. =)

AH! OK, Ronin.

You never know what to expect at that shop. Nothing would surprise me.

I used to be high on them when it came to dry goods, but I am backing off on them. It seems like some of the full timers there get annoyed with customers. Who needs that?
