There should be no confusion, he clearly states NY Aquatics not NY Reef Aquatics.

I've shopped at both places and to be 100% honest its hit or miss on fish.

This is NY Aquatics website,
https://www.nyaquatic.com/

He used to be a member here but something happened and he moved on....

I never had any problems with fish from him but I always go and pick it up so I can see what conditions fish are.
I am curious did you buy 11 fish at same time and put them in your tank?

I used to be a good customer of NY Aquatic before he got his warehouse space and for about a year after. I spent a LOT of money with him and so did my dad and several friends.

That all ended one day when I went to him and first he didn't want to give me the time of day and reluctantly told me to look around. I figured he was having a bad day and I bought a few cleaner shrimp and some fish. Literally less than a quarter mile from his location I check on the cleaner shrimp and they are dead. I call him and he accuses me of putting them in front of a hot vent of the car, etc. My best guess is that he mixed the water by accident from his fish system and put them into copper. He lost about half a dozen good customers that day and I have never returned.
