For a supplier, Aquatic Eco-Systems.

If you know what you need, they'll have it. If you don't know what you need, you'll still be able to find it.

In my current circulation setup water movement in the aquarium is achieved with one Tunze Steam pump (18 V transformer, 11000 l/h) mounted on Belimo LM24 device, which is used for rotating Tunze Steam pump.

Here's some good DIY plans. Granted the site is about freshwater (cichlids), but there are still some good ideas and plans.

Acrylic Company that Cuts and Ships Cheap

When I went out and looked into cutting my own 1/4 inch acrylic here in Atlanta for my fuge I was estimating spending about $150 dollars to make it myself.

All the tools and such that I needed or needed to update was looking costly. I did a lot of looking around into a cheap place to cut the acrylic for me and was being quoted $150 by piedmont to cut and pick it up.

Thats when I stumbled onto this website.
http://www.jmkdisplays.com/

It was great, I gave them my specifications and they cut it and shipped it for close to half of the prices I had been quoted.
Packaging was good and it arrived about a week to 2 weeks after I made my order.

4" slip/slip unions for DIY skimmers, etc.

From Pikey, who posted this recently in a DIY skimmer thread:

Too good not to share here in this sticky thread.
__________________

I just found a local (10 miles from home) plumbing store that sells Spears 4" schedule 80 slip/slip unions for $25.00. I bought two. The cheapest place I found them up until now is $30.18 each. CustomAquatic sells these for $49.99. These are the same stock number as the ones on that site for half the price and no shipping. I am really happy.

I dont beleive no one has said this one yet. In fact Ive only been on this site for a short amount of time, but I havnt seen this site mentioned once and it is a great resource for alot of reefkeeping stuff.
GARF
They have great plans for any size DIY tanks, stands, plenums, and live rock. Just enter your desired dimensions into the calculator and out comes the plans!
Pay them a visit regardless if your a DIYer or not!
I used their plans to build my 180g plywood tank, and a slight variation of their stand. It is a freshwater tank, but if you would like to take a look it is here

PVC unions

Heres a link for an online union supplier, the 3" seems like a good deal but the 4" er is WAY too much. I've never been able to find a 4" for less than $49.99 any where online though.

Oh, and a link to their Bulkhead fittings page too.
