I have been an aquarium hobbyist for about thirty five years. I discovered Rivers to Reefs a few years ago and have been thoroughly impressed since then and routinely visit the store. The staff, particularly Aaron, has always taken time to answer all of my questions. Aaron and his staff take great interest in their customers tanks, and want you to succeed. Unlike some aquarium stores, they aren’t about just selling you product, but rather telling you what is best for your overall success and the health of your fish. If you don’t need something they will tell you. Also, his staff has always been knowledgeable and if they don’t know the answer they will find it for you instead if making something up. I highly recommend Rivers to Reefs for your aquarium needs as well as a place to visit to just share and interact with Aaron’s staff and other enthusiastic hobbyist.
