HI everyone,
I, like many, am addicted to podcasts and I found one on fish keeping which I am enjoying. One of the hosts owns Aquarium Co-op which sells fish keeping supplies. You can buy from them on line but I don't know if there is a physical store too or what. Well anyways has anyone purchased from them on line and if so how were they? I hadn't seen them mentioned here before but was curious if anyone was familiar with them. Thanks!!

Yes. Bought my Bug Bites, Omega One (I think), plant scissors and tweezers, gang valves, "waffle ball" shrimp cave thing (though I dropped one 5 minutes after opening it... Still haven't tried gluing it together), what else... Oh yeah, Easy Green and Easy Green Nano, intake sponge, spiderwood package.
The physical store is in Washington.
I've mentioned them here a lot and his video on the nitrogen cycle is my go-to for new people or those who don't understand the basics of cycling. I also reference some videos regarding filters.
Products are usually shipped the day I order and I get them within a few days. I've seen some people get them the day of the order or day after, but they must be closer or something. I'm only a state down but with how USPS is setup...
I haven't ordered their plants yet.
I haven't needed to use it, but their customer service is great.
I watch his livestreams, too.

Good to know, thanks!! I think I will give them a try. I'm looking for some plants and other stuff so it's a good opportunity to do that. I forgot about the videos, they were mentioned on the podcast, have to check those out too! Thanks again!

No problem. They've semi-recently done away with sales and discount codes in favor of keeping prices low to begin with, but sometimes they have overstock sales. He really puts a lot of time and effort into being an ethical but smart business and looking out for customers and doesn't sell things he hasn't used and/or tested before. This is clear in the videos.

In addition to the above kudos- I recently received my shipment from Aquarium co-op. I placed my order on thursday afternoon and by SATURDAY the box was in my hands - and I live in GA! I've ordered several plants from them and they all arrived extremely well packaged. I think you would be impressed by the care they take. Oh yeah, I just placed my second order for Easy Green.

Only 2 hours? I would drive 2 hours to see his store and buy his fish. I've even toyed with the idea of making a pilgr/ road trip. I gotta see his giant puffer Murphy!

I ordered several plants, cholla wood, root tabs and easy Green. Can't wait to get my stuff. Wish I wasn't on the opposite side of the country or I would check out the store.
