    Greetings. I am new to the world of saltwater aquariums and online forums. Currently I am in the process of saving money and learning about the hobby.

    I have kept several freshwater aquariums throughout the years, but have nothing at home right now. My plan is to set up a 75g, 90g, or 125g - once I decide what I plan to stock.

    Does anyone have tips for online sites that sell aquariums and various products? The LFS options in this area are limited.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Live Aquaria is great, Bulk reef supply as well. Dr. Fosters and Smith have an aquarium section too. Check out the vendor evaluation section for other places as well, plus reviews

    Welcome to the site...even the big box stores sell tanks. Walmart, petco. petsmart, be careful with online on big items. Check the shipping charges and regulations. For big tanks I have seen "must have access to a unloading dock" just something to consider.

    I'm mostly concerned with canopy & stand options for aesthetics. :D
