Good Question.  Easy Answer - (Read this Review on ReefCentral).  There are hundreds of online stores out there, why are we different? 

My story is in April 2011, I wanted to buy an Ecotech Marine MP40 for my first saltwater aquarium. It was an Oceanic 42 hexagon that I still have today. The pump was like $400 and that was WAY WAY over my budget. I thought my better half would have killed me if I spent that much on a pump to just move water. So I called up Ecotech an opened a wholesale account.  Back then not very many people were selling MP40’s and there were a lot less restrictions. They were nice enough to give me a shot, so I bought 3 pumps. I put one on my tank and dropped the other 2 on eBay to make a quick buck. I had sold golf clubs and some other collectibles on eBay so I knew that pretty well. Little did I know what would happen next would change my life forever.
 
I went to work the next morning as normal. 9-5 in a 6’ by 6’ cubicle. I spent 15 years of my life in that cubicle in the end. It was a great job but I was inside all day on my butt.  Growing up a dairy farmers son, that wasn't the best life.  That morning I got a popup from eBay, “Ship your Products Now!” and I was like wtf? Then I remembered, the pumps. So I rushed home at lunch packed them up on my lunch brake and shipped them out.
 
Later that day I was sitting in that cube thinking, man that was easy so I bought 6x more pumps from Ecotech. Long story short, they sold over a weekend and I was hooked, like and sinker.  Not only was I selling stuff I loved, it was fun and I was making a few bucks and I had a cool fish tank at home!  From there I found the domain name saltwateraquarium.com up for auction and won the bid. Having a degree in computer science and being a computer gaming dork all my life, Ret Paladins FTW,  I found my new game and here we are.
 
8 years and millions in sales later I’m doing what I love, helping customers have cool fish tanks,  having fun and providing our customers a great service where they can get their aquarium supplies FAST, FREE and from a trusted source where they know if they have an problem we have their back.
