Oceanic 200g buckets, $30.

Although not really a special, this is the LFS's regular price

I havn't been to this LFS yet (I'm going tomorrow), but they sound really good. They have mostly tank raised fish, and keep those fish separate from the normal caught fish. They also QT the tank raised fish for 4 weeks to make sure they are free of disease before they sell them.

I went to a moving sale on the weekend and the people were desperate to sell their aquarium, heres what I got: I picked up a 55 gallon w/stand, one maxijet 1200 powerhead, aquaclear 300 or 400 filter I think, 300W marineland heater and 200W heater and a large air pump all for $100.
My biggest expense now is my lighting, I'm going to get 4- 96W power compacts.

hey ryan,
use two workhorse 7's to power the PCs. Each workhorse 7 will power 2 96w PCs...and it's cheaper!

Don't know if this would be a great deal in the coastal regions but I thought it was pretty good for Kansas. 1 leather toadstool, 1 favites & 3 striped mushrooms for $60. Also a friend gave me some of his zoo's that were taking over his tank.
