Marine design ROCKS!!!!!

So I took a little trip out to Marine Design to check them out. 1st let me say if my wife is impressed then you have a great store. Let start out with the store, pretty easy to find in Suwanne. Upkeep on the store is awsome.

When you walk in the store theres the front area where all the drygoods are. Including a really nice reef tank with a ton of SPS. When you walk into the fish room in the rear of the store theres an abundance amount of SPS for sale around $79 for small colony's. (not frags)

As you walk into the fish room even more tanks appeal to the eye with an array of colorful marine fish from baby size to show size 6 or 7" plus in size. They have everything from powder blue tangs, to anthias, triggers, clowns, clown tangs, sohal tangs Im talking 2 plus of almost everything....

I believe they get there shipment on thursdays. I will also add they have a free membership that gives you 10% off plus your ARC 10% off thats 20% off your purchase WOW...

All in all we were so impressed with the cleanliness of the tanks and I mean clean...

Thanks...

My wife loves the place. Is very clean and neat. Good selection and fair pricing. Wife loves the restroom. Women are impressed by weird things. I live in Kennesaw and SHE suggests that we drive out there to take a look at what is there on the weekends.

If you have a problem getting the wife out to the LFS, take her to Marine Design. It worked to me.

I live about 3 miles from them, they have always been very helpful with any "startup questions" that I've thrown at them..

My wife was in the rest room as well weird...... But on the brighter side I was impressed and that takes alot. I will be going back often as I think I found my new fish store. I just cant explain how nice the set up was. People should at least take a drive out there just to look.

Yup. The service is great. Very educated. I usually talk to Steven, Victor, and Mark. Robin (the owner) is occasionally there, but most of the time setting up tanks (like she did mine). I will definatley keep coming back there!

William, hope you don't mind if I move this to the sponsors section. This is a great review for others who are interested in checking out the store.

It's a bonus that it's between a Pizza place and an Indian grocery store. Eat Pizza w/beer -> shop for fish -> get some Indian sweets.

I'm North Indian, and lemme tell you, that place is off the hook! Great selection. My mommy and grandmother make a lot of indian food, so I go to Marine Designs with dad, mom goes to the indian store, and we're all happy!!

Yep, we were in there today. Great guys, patience of saints and incredible product.

Picked up a beautiful Pipe Coral. Will post a picture once it's acclimated and in the QT tank.

Their acro colonies are a sight to behold - incredible colors, size and selection.

Cool!! By any chance, did you see a small chalice, a favia, or a mushroom rock there? Those were my old ones.

There were a BUNCH of mushroom rocks and favia. I don't remember seeing any chalice, but I wasn't looking for them.

They had I think two chalices for sale under the acro tank. The owner said he might be adding a really bright red one soon as well out of his own tank...
