Who to order LeeMar tank from?

I'm looking to have a Leemar tank built. I live up in NorCal, but will be down in Orange County around new years and figured it would be a good time to stop and pick up a Leemar tank from the factory.

I'd like to check a couple SoCal dealers to see what their price quotes are like. I've gleaned from the site that the best prices seem to be:

Charlie from the Fish Tank Factory
Aaron from the SPS Coral Store

But I'm having trouble finding contact info for them... Anyone have their contact info they can PM me or any other suggested people/places I should get quotes from?

Here's my planned tank:

40 x 24 x 24
1/2" glass
3 side Starphire
Black Silicone, Black Back
Diamond Edge High Polish
1/8" Recessed Eurobracing
Internal Center Back RR with two 1 1/2" drains (1 as backup) and two 3/4" returns
One 3/4" hole in each back corner in the euro bracing (feeding, etc.)

Any other suggestions on what I should or should not order in my quote? I wish I could go longer but I'm limited on length where it's going. Are two 3/4" returns too much water for one 1 1/2" drain?

Great, thanks guys! I gave them a call and they suggested I write it up in an email (pm me if anyone needs the address). Email sent, getting excited for my first custom tank!

I would go with starfire on the front only. My last tank had 3 sides and left side failed.
Go figure the one side with my power head attached. I was using a jeabo wp40. Lee at said it is out of warrantee since the said power head was placed on the side. They are only to be placed on the back panel.

What do u mean by fail? Cracked or leaked? Either way.. you're scarying me.

I should be getting my Leemar this weekend. 96 x 26 x 22. 3 sided starfire. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. I ordered mine with a private guy, company called Reef Technology's

Me too!! Are you saying that was a Leemar tank which failed? That's the first I've heard of one failing.

Same here. Heard nothing but good things about LeeMar. Mine has been up and running for about 3 months now without a problem. 3 side starphire with WP25 on the side.

I got a good quote from rainbow pets on a lee mar tank back when I was looking to upgrade. They are up in Arleta. Nice folks to deal with.
