    Is it true you guys are closing for good at the end of the month?

    Are there going to be any sales on entire systems? Like the Red Sea systems?

    Looks like it. They posted a Profile post yesterday that they are closing the store and liquidating everything

    where did they post that? I tried calling them to check prices on a couple of things but they always go to VM. I bought a clam from them last year and it ended up popping a few aiptasia so I never went back. Still sad to see a store close

    Edit - just found out from a "rewards" member of theirs that a text was sent out stating that they were closing their doors - so it is confirmed.

    I need a Kessil H380 if anyone goes there tell me prices. It's hard to pass up BRS points unless there's savings!

    Corals 50% off, most everything else - including tanks - are 25% off

    Just looked at the map and with traffic it would be over an hour drive for me, looks I'll have to make it down there tomorrow instead.

    Yep. I got an email through their points/rewards system saying they were closing at the end of the month. I was just in there on Friday and there was no indication that they were wrapping up... Too bad I'm dealing with a dino infestation and don't have any business taking on livestock right now...

    Since I just payed the annual fee for the ICP testing, I hope they’re willing to compensate a little bit.

    FYI- I just wasted a trip down to the store and there’s a sign on the door saying they close at 4:00 now. So, don’t waste your time like I did.

    Great information! So glad I didn't sit in traffic to find that out!

    Store will still be open for corals, fish and most dry goods are being phased out. ICP is a separate business entity and is unaffected. New hours will be closing by 4. People coming to look here then buying online with no taxes and getting points on top of that are why most LFS are struggling. As for aiptasia on a clam come on? Really? IMO that’s your own fault for not quarantining everything like you should. It’s what a responsible hobbyist would do no matter where they get their livestock from

    Also AquaMedic is not even in the same ballpark as icp, two totally different testing methods and where they do overlap icp is much more accurate.

    Glad to hear that ICP will still be available. Thanks for clarifying.
