Writing reviews of vendors and equipment are so commonplace on the net these days, and they’re quite prevalent in the aquarium keeping community as well. Most aquarium forums have sections dedicated strictly to reviews, and hobbyists crave the information so that they can purchase from the right place. But recent legal rulings might be quite troublesome for the review process. It has been ruled that certain reviews can be deemed defamatory, allowing the store to take legal action against negative reviews that are posted online. We have praised the customer review aspect of aquarium keeping, but we just wanted to let everyone know that they should be careful when posting their opinions online. If you must write a review, just make sure it is honest and whatever claims you make are verifiable.
