I must agree. They are horrible. Overcharged my credit card $300 and now am fighting with my credit card company to get it back! True scam artists.

Well, guys, I had a good experience with them.
The proper amount charged, a call the night before to confirm shipping and an e-mail from Fed Ex. The fish came in healty and professionaly packaged.
Overall I had a good experience with them. I would order from them again.

Well Big Boy, you are one of the few that have had luck with them. Kind of like winning the Mega-Million lottery with them. In fact you probably have better odds of winning the lotto than getting decent service, the right product,not being overcharged Check BBB results about them ( may be also under Aquacon). I think they changed their name to pull the wool over everybodys eyes.

Different name. Same old lousy service.

I just thought I would add a little something here. In the end after contesting the charges on our credit card, we ended up having to eat the enitre order, even though a majority of it was DieingOA.

It did take the order 2 days to get to us, even though we overpaid for "OVERNIGHT" shipping. We were not reimbursed for any of the shipping, although I have a feeling they may have been(unconfirmed and just speculation on my part, but if I shipped out something overnight and it didn't get there in that amount of time, I would be calling my shipper, but who knows).

They were actually very helpful on the phone, but when it came to the money issues, we weren't able to come to any agreements.
