I have ordered from them several times in past with great results. This week I ordered 9 bags of sand(30 lbs each) along with 3 large buckets of salt & shipping was only $15 total! Can't beat that. You know they must be taking a loss to ship that cheap. The sand arrived yesterday-each bag was individually boxed and taped with heavy duty strapping tape. Not even a grain of sand leaked!

They just make it off other stuff, that does eat there lunch on the shipping though.

So far I have ordered a ton of tank and pond stuff from them, my Mother and sister do also.

The have really expanded they inventory on reef equipment over the years but still have a long way to go.

Yeah, they still have some crappy (to use the misleading quote as applied by the industry) 'entry level' stuff. To think that if they did not sell some of the stuff they had, they could get better stuff and people would be much better off.

My only problem with Dr's foster / smith is they bought up some of the the dog and aquarium companies that I used to love dealing with, but that's life I guess :)
