    Glass Tank Builder in Ontario

    Anyone familiar with this company?

    http://socalaquariums.com/home

    Prices seem too good to be true

    Consider me intrigued and suspicious.

    By the pictures, it looks less to me like a builder and more like an importer.

    The ultimate builder question is if they do drilling.

    It says on the website "pick up only, no delivery" and to "come in and look around".

    Looks like B and C-Stock "Aquarium Masters" Aquariums. They are likely buying pallets of discounted aquariums and flipping em.

    That is the standard spectrum for reef and corals. I am pretty sure those lights are the older oddysea boxes.

    *edit: never mind, Carlo is probably correct.

    I lean more towards newer anime over classic, but have seen many from the 80's, 90's, 00's, I'm currently watching Black Clover, Finished what was available on hulu for "How to pick up girls in a dungeon" and "No game No life". However I have at some point in time seen all 56 billion DBZ episodes.

    Hands down favorite anime to date would have to be Death Note. Attack on titan was ramping up, but haven't seen anything from the newest season. The 3 year haitus really killed it for me.

    Could be a good resource for grow out tanks, etc.

    I agree decent tanks at a decent price. If they had frag tanks that would be cool, but they only have the super standard sizes.

    But what about the new DragonBallZ? Lmao, they still haven't been dubbed in english yet. That was the only anime I really got into, but if you want a good manga series, check out Domu A Child's Dream. It's a 3 book series and is pretty dang good.
