Dec: Let's hear about the bargains you've found.

Ok folks, if you come across some excellent deals, bargains, specials sales coupon codes etc...here is your place to share with fellow reefers. Seen a price online, that is too good not to share? Well, put it here. This applies to LFS as well, make sure you tell us where we can save some money

I'm retired & everything you hear about us sr. citizens is absolutely true. WE ARE CHEAP. I've always found the best bargains are found at our local aquarium club meetings auction that usually comes at the end of the meeting. Someone (me included) is always bringing in locally bred fish, used equipment, food, even tanks. You can catch an interesting speaker, meet fellow hobbyists, & learn something new........Rich

Petco has advertised a 26 gallon bowfront with wooden stand w/door, filtration and heater for 199...sounded pretty good to me

I was talking to a person who said that once a year, petco sells tanks (just tanks) for $1 per gal. (I.E, 90 gal=$90, 100 gal= $100, 1 gal= $1!)
I'm not sure when this happens because I live in a fairly remote town, I think the nearest petco is in Eugene.. maybe Corvallis, I'm not sure...
When I was on vacation in Paris, they had really cheap lr... It was about .50 cents per lb in U.S money..
Well that's all I can think of,
Holly
ps. I got lr that much in a store once, put they were just about to stop selling sw, so it was kinda like a clearance.

Chicagoland

If you live in the Chicagoland area and are looking for a new tank, do not miss Tropi-Quatics in Lombard on Main Street. I looked everywhere for a new tank and found a 72 gal bowfront, stand, light and split glass top for $400. I didn't find anywhere from Aurora to Wrigleyville that sold it all that cheap. Don't bother with fish from there, though.

Aquarium Filters

If you are looking for Penguin Emporer filters, check http://www.foryourfish.com I got 16 for like $41 shipped in about three days. Locally here it's like 4 for $16.99 or so, so I was pretty happy.

One online place that a friend here at work told me about is www.thatpetplace.com. I checked out the prices and was very happy with them. Drift wood is a great price. Sure you don't get to select the piece yourself, but I paid 25% what the lfs was asking for a similar piece. Good prices on some other things as well.

My sister gave me her 10 gallon,
I got rid of the bright blue rocks she used and put a light fixture in it. I did have a 15 watt floresent on it but put in an incondesent last night.
not a bad little tank I plan on changing the filteration aswell i want to put an aqua-clear in it instead of the canister filter.
and I plan on planting it later on when i get a better floresent fixture for it,
