Recommendation For A Business Tank Setup

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my work is looking to get a reef tank for our business and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on a company to install it. I do a lot with FW tanks and specialize in aquatic plants, but have very little to do with SW, and nothing with reefs, but I do know the basics and am capable of doing basic maintenance once everything is running. They are settling on a 6ft-7ft tank, likely a 180-240 or something in that area.

They already got one estimate from a local place that I think is really high. Their parts markups are all easily 150-200%+ over retail, so at that rate I'd even be willing to order all the parts in personally and then have someone get it all set up. I get that a company has to make money, but this is ridiculous.

Anyone know a good company that will work with us on this and charge fair prices?

Mark-up is nowhere close to 100% for drystock, closer to 10-20%. Livestock is a different story though...
