Hello Leroy,
I have finally taken a few pictures of my tank to send to you.
I made the mistake of taking them rather early in the morning so not everyone was totally awake and open for business. It should be enough to give you an idea of how your little creatures are thriving in New Jersey. There are still some problem (pet shop) corals that try my patience, but for the most part all is fine. I would appreciate any ideas, advise, or criticism you can offer after looking at the tank. Don't hold back, let me have it! I will always follow your advise as you have never let me down. You are the supreme Guru of marine reef aquariums!

Let me just take a minute to thank you and everyone at Garf for all of your help and friendship. This tank would be a disaster without all of your assistance over the years. I truly value our friendship and I am very grateful for everything you have done for me.

Let me also say that this aquarium, as you know, is chock full of corals from Garf. Without a doubt they are the healthiest, fastest growing, and most beautiful corals available anywhere! I will go on record as saying that any reef aquarium thatİexists without Garf corals is limited to being, at best, average. Only after Garf enters the tank can it excel. And this, combined with your sound, proven advise on care and maintenanceİturns an aquarium into a work of art!

Because of you, Sally Jo, and everyone at Garf, this hobby will leap to heights unrealized. I wish you all the best. Take good care of yourself,

Mark DeFrancisco

P.S.
Congrats to Sally Jo on her sucessful clown fish breeding.
I'm sure she is a proud grandmommy!

Subject: THANKS FOR EVERYTHING

Hello Leroy,
I just had to write you to thank you for everything that you and your staff have done to help me create such a beautiful reef tank. Let me start by saying that I would never have done business with any internet company in the past. I am very careful about how my money is spent. YOUR BEAUTIFUL PICTURES ON THE WEB SITE CONVINCED ME TO GIVE YOU A TRY. BOY AM I GLAD I DID!

I started out by purchasing some garf grunge and reef janitors. The janitors have completely cleaned my tank and are busy working every day. I had an algae bloom that I could not control, and now, in only a few weeks, it is not only gone, but the tank is spotless!

The grunge is the most beautiful substrate I have ever seen! I have found numerous little corals and sponges growing in my tank, and I am experiencing a coraline algae bloom much faster than thought possible. Also, every experienced reef keeper that has seen my tank wants to know what the heck is that? Being used to seeing plain sand or crushed coral, they are delighted and mystified by the beauty! It has also added a level of stability and overall health to my tank that is amazing!

Next, as you know, I have ordered a few shipments of corals from you. I can't believe how fast they grow, and how beautiful they are! This is of course in addition to the rare species that you offer. Never in a million years could I have found the rare and different corals you have sent me. The pet shop, or reef "experts" would never have most of these beautiful rarities!

As a matter of fact, my local coral supplier has seen my tank and he cannot believe his eyes! He has told me that with over thirty years in the reef aquarium business, never has he seen such a beautiful tank! The "show" tank in his store is very pale by comparison!

I have told him that thanks to some real professionals in Idaho, this type of tank could be a reality for anyone! I am sure he will order from you soon, as he is most jealous of my aquarium, and has to have some for his own!

I will send you some pictures very soon. I am sure that you will agree, this is truly a beautiful, healthy, thriving, 90 gallon reef aquarium. I owe most of it to you and your staff!

From grunge, janitors, magic reef dust, and your help in recommending food and additives, everything I followed from what you have suggested has helped my tank achieve more goals than I ever expected! THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING! I CANNOT WAIT TO RECEIVE MY NEXT ORDER, VERY SOON!
