    I only have good things to say about reefs2go. I also liked pacificeastaquaculture for WYSIWYG frags. I ordered a nem from them that was WYSIWYG and it arrived with a torn foot and didnt survive, other than that I liked them?

    all of the above. Only have 1 lfs within 100 miles and I have not been that impressed with them so far.

    But what specifically are you looking for. There are some very good on-line stores that specialize in only certain things.

    First off I am looking for a protien skimmer. Then I will be looking for an upgrade in lighting. Beyond that I think I will most likely be doing my live stock and live rock shopping online as well.

    I think you first need to figure which brand of Skimmer you want, then do a google search for that brand to see who carries it.

    i know that i want either a remora or a octapus hob. I know different companies that sell the stuff. I was just hoping to get ideas of places others have used with success or places to stay away from.

    Check out Bulk Reef Supply. BJ is getting ready to do a group buy that you could get in on, and would save you a little bit more as well.

    aquacave.com sells Octopus skimmers.
    marinedepot.com and drsfostersmith.com carry a wide range of dry goods and equipment.
    liveaquaria.com, coralmorphologic.com and reefcleaners.org are ones I have used for livestock and have been happy with.
    reefgeek.com for lighting and bulbs
