Best deal on Craigslist, EBAY, etc......

I was just wondering, we are always searching for deals, where have you found the best.

I just bought a fully set up 180 with 125 lbs of LR, sump, pumps, and all for $500 on Craigslist. I also bought a TurboFloter 1000 with pump on Ebay for $77.

Any other sites we should know about. Post your best deals you have ever seen, on those sites or any other!

Hands down...Craigslist!!!! Course I was in retail sales before my kids and I can assure you, I dicker with the price!
I got a 4 month old 92 gallon corner bow front with solid wood stand, two light ballasts, Fluval 404 filter, and all the extra goodies ( I mean ALL the extras) for $450!
The original receipt was in one of the boxes and the final price tag was for over $1300.

I got my 55 gallon aquarium with a stand, a hood, the light, filter, a couple powerheads and a few other miscellaneous things on craigslist for 50 dollars a couple years ago. I'm still using the tank. I love it. I never would have been able to afford a tank so big if it wasn't for craigslist (poor college student)
