*grins* Got a great deal at the lfs, but mostly because they aren't very bright.

Managed to get a yoyo loach (listed as a botia striata) for $3.99, but even better, got a schistura mahnerti for $6.99! The ONLY place I found carrying them is asking $15-16. And I even told the guys there what the fish were; they didn't seem to care. Heh, they're loss then, and my very happy gain.

My local PetSmart has 100 gal [ or was it 120 gal? I forget ] tanks for 100 bucks, no filter stand or anything else. Just the tank and hood.


Which I don't consider that bad since another close by LFS is selling 55gals with NO hoods for 100 o_O

William thats a great price. its not often you can score a large tank for $1/gal. Build yourself the stand and hood and you got yourself a $400+ setup for less than $200.

At my LFS, Capitol Aquarium, they just had a parking lot sale with used or items with missing peices. I was able to purchase a brand new ViaAqua 750 canister filter that runs 315gph with a missing lid housing clip for a mere $5. I alsdo puchased a used 4600 lph pump and some type of used ehim filter, also for $5. In addition, I got a brand new up to 1000gal. pond filter for $45, two boxes of 20 bio-chem star media for two dollars each, and a container of food for $2. This is a good day!!!!!

Wandering through the local petsmart on my way to homedepot I noticed they had the Emperor 400 on for sale at 49$cdn (maybe 30$us?), that is about half of what it is at BigAl's.
Don't know if they have the same sales in Canada and the US at the same time.
